Sounds like you need to replace your t-bars. What year is your truck, mileage etc...?

driverside always has a sag.....they are cranked for than the right from the factory. maxed out driverside means warn down bars and eventual replacement of the bars are needed. BUT...it's perfectly fine maxed out.
