Nasty Ranger Lean....
 
I know our trucks are known for this lean but I noticed mines kinda leaning a lil more then normal. I haven't noticed it this bad in a while. Does it look normal to you guys?

i know you dont live in the salty north but check the front and rear spring hanger and rear shackle for any problems. northern trucks are know to punch threw the rear hanger

Prerunner-Ranger 04-29-2009 11:51 AM

I'll check it out.

Nice spare tire.

How manny inches lower is on the drivers side from the passenger? My old ranger looked about that bad, it was 2" lower.

No, the sign says "pants club" on it. Are you a member of that club?

Would removing the sway bar cause it to lean like this?

I blew a rear shock in my F150 and it leaned like that. Checked them yet?

They are still somewhat new. I've only had the rear shocks on for about a year and they are bilsteins... Aren't bilsteins supposed to last longer?

Prerunner-Ranger 04-29-2009 05:38 PM

If I tighten up my driverside torsion bar will that help even it out?

I can't seem to find anything wrong in the rear.

Woods-Rider 04-29-2009 05:43 PM

I have the same problem. think im gonna go to the jy and get a passengers side pack and put it on the drivers side to see if that fixes it.

99ranger4x4 04-29-2009 05:44 PM

welll
you could sas it.. make the front driver spring perch 3/8" taller and solve it.. it worked for me :D


anywho.. it may have just been how you parked, do you have a locker? Does it still lean now that your home? does it lean at a stop light?

Demo1986 04-29-2009 05:50 PM

i have the same problem. i put chevy shackles for lift and also to see if it would fix the problem and it didnt. then i switched the leafs and that didnt do anything. my rear shocks are about a 1 1/2 years old so it couldnt be that. if u figure it out let me know

whippersnapper02 04-29-2009 05:51 PM

Shocks have nothing to do with ride height unless one is a lot shorter than the other or one is bent so much that its holding the truck down.

bjohnson238 04-29-2009 11:57 PM

Something could be bent or maybe sagged springs or weak t-bars. Is the coating on the t-bars chipped or flaking?

too hard to tell from this picture. measure how high the truck is sitting over all 4 wheels. ANd yea, adjusting a torsion bar bolt will level it out if thats the problem
