Dose this look right

Sorry for the noob question.

Looks normal to me. Driverside bolt is always deeper than the passenger side bolt. And the bolt pictured isn't all the way out....it's only half way out or so. The bolt is about 3.5" in length.

Haha. I have wondered about this too. I have tried to level my truck by counting the threads on the bolts. Believe me, it doesnt work. lol Why are they like that Shane? More weight on that side of the truck?

Hmm just looking at the bolts on my truck today. When the bolts are deeper does that mean your cranked more for height or is it the oposite way

It's called "The Ranger Lean". All the weight on the driverside(driver, gastank, battery, etc).

If you crank both all the way in, the passenger side will be about 1.5-2" TALLER than the driverside.

The deeper that bolt is threaded, the higher the truck.
