Lower on one side
Passenger side sits lower by about 1 1/2 inches in the front. Checked tie rods etc, everything is good, no alignment problems. Torsion bars? shock getting weak? Ideas?

Measure from the ground up to the frame, front and rear to confirm what you are seeing. It is possible that the suspension is ok, but the mounts are bad.
Mine looked crooked until I measured, and reshimmed the bed.

Normal, its due to the gas tank and suspension wearing unevenly due to the weight. Can be compensated with some torsion tweaking, fresh bushings and leaf springs.

My dad's 95 did this when it was brand new.

My truck did this a few years ago and I was told to "stop picking up so many fat chicks":rofl2:

I ended up cranking up my torsion bar a bit on that side to level the truck.

probably worn out cab bushings.

Definitely the gas tank. Happens to us all

Good ol hardbody lean. Confirm it with a tape and level it back out if possible.

i noticed my left rear is about an inch lower than the right rear. it has been almost five years since i changed the shocks. why do oddball things like this pop up during savage ass wind chill temps? the wind chill is forcasted for the single digit temp range for several days. i really doubt i will be out there goofing around.

People always comment on mine being leaned off to one side, I just say that's the gas tank side but i'd like to fix it one day. doesn't help that the rear shock on that side is toast now too.
