mine was because the front torsion bar on the passengerside was cranked higher than the driverside therefore pushing the driverside rear down

I had that problem a few years ago and it was just the T-bars were uneven. I'd start there.

Just a side note.....I would think it leans that much when he is not in the truck, he is outside measureing the gangster lean. So just throw that idea out the window.
