2010 Ranger regular cab XL 4 cyl slight lean... Normal??

I just acquired a 2010 Ranger regular cab XL 4 cyl with A/C and stick shift. I love the truck it rides nice compared to my old 94 4 cyl ranger that I had. I noticed that on the drivers side the truck leans to the driver's side somewhat. It only has 760 miles on it. Is this how these rangers are?? should I bring it to the dealer's attention on the first oil change??? If that's how these trucks are oh well I will live with it. Also I have a quad that I can load on the back when I go riding,,,,, you guys think this might help a little over time maybe the passenger side leaf springs might sag???? truks nice no rattles no nothing, everything feels solid....

it is known as the "ranger lean" we all have it, its cuz the gas tank and all the other heavy **** is on that side. idk if you have torsion bars, but if you do you can crank the driver side bar a little higher than the passenger side and thatll level it out a bit

its normal, they lean to the driver side beacuse the gas tank is on that side once you get the driver in the lean becomes worst

btw: when did you get your 2010 i got mine labor day and have already racked up 900 miles

Completely normal, although it seems odd Ford doesn't level them out.

ive only had it for like 5 days and I love my truck.... I used to have a v8 tundra and i got me this ranger and man I will have extra money after saving on gas...

eventually after the standard 36 k mile warranty expires i plan on leveling it and maybe then I can find a custom made spacer slightly bigger for the driver's side... if its normal I will just enjoy and not worry about it. Can anyone recommend me the best 6X8 speakers??? price is not an isssue.

Future mods to come:

limo tint rear window black.
Replace am/fm stock radio with aftermarket and some better 6X8 on the doors.
