    hey guys, noticed something wierd today when taking some crap out of my backseat. The drivers seat sits about an inch lower than the passenger seat. Checked the suspension, the seat setting, etc. nothing's off. Anyone else notice this?
    Not a big deal, just curious as hell

    Before anyone asks, no, I'm not fat, and my truck has under 55 K, so it can't be a case of seat droop.

    You'd think so, but no. Tried the lever that raises the seat. Didn't make that much of a difference. Besides I'm 6'3" so it balances out lol

    Strange, I've got a 2011 4.6 L DC. I'll check mine. Are you sure it's the seat that's lower and not the carpeting maybe that's sticking up on one side to make an optical illusion?

    No man, I checked every angle. Even looked at it from the front. It does sit lower. it's not noticeable unless you really look. Like I said it doesn't bother me, I'm just curious as hell lol

    Were you wearing matching shoes? Maybe one soul is thinner than the other.

    I leave the mix and match shoes to my nephew. My seat pops sometimes when I accelerate and brake. Heard some tundras have seat frame issues. Could be the culprit. Gotta bring it in before my warranty expires.

    I don't see the seat higher on the passenger side, but does feel that way when I sit on the passenger side. I do think it's an optical illusion like @Nor7 says.
