Passengerside Sag

Hey so this may be a dumb question but is it normal to have more sag on the passenger side of your truck. Before I lifted the truck I was always around 1/4" - 1/2" lower on the passenger side in the front. After the lift which was the the spindles and add a leaf and 1" torsion crank, Im still 1/2" lower in the front and about 3/4" lower in the the rear than driver side. These measurments where taken in a garage on level ground, I find it strange that the differences are so great especially for the rear. Any ideas, knowledge or people that wanna slap me in the face for my stupidity are appreciated

(Everything was installed proffessionally by a reputable offroad store so I dont doubt there abilities)

Thanks
Steve

Time to crank a bar or uncrank the other.



Your situation is really the polar opposite of what 102% of rangers suffer from. If cranking doesn't cure, I'm starting to think that maybe the passenger side key isn't in the correct spot in the 'bucket' on the frame. Another thing running in my mind is how ODD it is for the rear to be totally saggy. I'm questioning the alignment of the bed to the cab on that side(bed set higher on the driverside than pass side), the rear frame, the leaf, are all possible problems that could be going on. Yay for warranty!



oh....and Steve....cross that southern boarder and there's a slap waitin' for ya... LOL!

hmm thats a good point. What would explain the reason why my passenger side rear is 3/4" lower that my driverside.

Sorry for noob questions. Lift just went on and im trying to figure out all the quirks.

Also is there a problem with driving with your suspension sitting unlevel like this...allignment? handling? part wear

Woulda learned TONS more if you drove south for the install in my shop! lol. I do one side with you watching, you do the other with me supervising... lol.



Nah, it's all good man. You can drive like that no problem...I really don't see any reason why parts would wear more or anything like that. It's so minimal, it won't make a difference.

Look at it this way, when you're seated in the truck, everything levels out. Perfect!

I have the same problem, it's not 3 quarters of an inch, but its noticeable

But, I had one of my roommates that's about my size and it leveled out.

Maybe it was intentional, cause me and full tank of gas would keep it level.
