Default Truck sitting funny

So I just noticed the other day when walking up to my truck in a parking lot it looks as if the driver's side rear corner of the truck is sitting too high compared to the rest of the truck. I was wondering if this is a torsion bar thing? Could the passenger side torsion bar not be tight enough? Or do I have to start looking at bend frame type questions. Any input would be great

Park on a perfectly level surface.
Tires all the same, and same pressure in each.
Measure from the ground to several points to determine what you are actually seeing:
Front cross member at the lower control arm mounts, front body mounts, the frame as several places, front and rear fender arch lips, etc. You are comparing one side to the other at what should be identical (symetrical) places. That should start to paint a picture of where the problem is.

You can use car ramps to make it easy to move around under.

I thought my torsion bars were off, but my lean turned out to be missing bed mount rubber spacers.

How much gas was in the tank?

'The Nissan Lean' is pretty common. Passenger side being slightly lower in the rear. You can start replacing leafs and bushings to remedy.

Turns out one of my rear bed mounts was funny and my passenger side torsion par got more. Lift when I tightened them
