Excessive Lean After Lift.... like 2" of Lean?

    I know this has been addressed in a different thread, but that thread has taken a turn for boobs, (not a bad thing).

    I noticed my truck was leaning so I measured... Driver's side is right at 2 inches lower than the passenger side. I know there is a expected lean (I guess), but 2 inches seems a little excessive. Gas tank was almost completely empty. (4 miles until empty according to the dash) I would imagine it is worse now that I have put 38 gallons in the tank which is on the driver's side.

    I have the @ToyTec Lifts Boss kit with 1.5" block in the rear. Could my shocks be charged unevenly? What else could be causing this? It is a 2017 Crew Max.

    It is probably just a simple coil adjustment. Pretty easy to do.

    @ToyTec Lifts will take care of you man. No worries.

    I know they will take care of me... they are good people.

    It's leaning more in the rear than the front. 2 inches in the rear and barely an inch in the front where it is adjustable. That's what is throwing me off.

    Might've not been charged correctly or you have a leak. Check the shocks and see if you can compress by hand

    You sound like good people as well. Your taking the high road and asking questions vs blasting the company. Says something about you, in a positive way.

    Hey @Vancepp,

    So the rear end is sagging out 2" but the front end is good?
    Would you mind taking some measurements (center of wheel hub to edge of fender) and send me some pictures of the rear suspension?

    Thanks for the response.

    Yes... The front is a little off, but not bad and I'm sure a little adjustment on the coil over could fix that. Or if we figure out why the back is off and get it fixed, it might fix the front. The back is just under 2 inches lower on drivers side. I will get some pictures in the morning and post them. My truck goes in the shop tomorrow to get hail damage repaired, so any further investigation may have to wait a few weeks.
