Quick T bar question

My trucks sits a little bit lower on the right side both front and back. I need an alignment anyway so i figure ill crank the t bars. Should I compensate for the 'lean' and crank the right side a bit more to make then level? Or should I still adjust them the same amount?

By a little lower i mean .5 cm in the read (negligible?) and about 1 cm in the front. Should I lower that tire 1 cm more than the other side?

the fuel tank is on the drivers side, so with a driver and a full tank of gas, it should sit pretty level.

but in your owners manual, it says you can crank it to lift the front if its sagging down a bit.

if your getting an alignment go ahead and crank it up abit, read the how to and be safe about it.

Yes you can crank them so it is level on both sides but being off by that little it dosent really matter. A full tank of gas or a passenger could affect it that much. So if you notice it leaning then you can crank it until it is level if not i wouldnt worry about it.
