If the front driver side is leaning, try adjusting the torsion bars. tighten the adjuster screw and that should lift that side up (then go get an alignment).

Not sure about the shock hitting the axle joint. Got an pics of that?

hmm....the shock is hitting the cv shaft? That's odd that it would. It is very tight, but shouldn't be hitting.

Driver side is natural for leaning...'ranger lean'. But...crank the left up a little, right down a little..should fix the lean problem.

Well, something is definately not right for the shock to be hitting the axle (CV shaft). You gotta get some pics so we can see it!

You might have the same prob I did.....I did not get the driver sides torsion key all the way on the t-bar and the adjuster bolt was not making contact with the key thus making the DS lean real bad,easy fix just pull the t-bar and put the torsion key in the right spot.

CV axle might be cashed in, circlip might need to be replaced, axle circlip to the diff might be loose causing the axle shaft (not the half shaft) to move. Check the brackets on the diff drop as well. Check the diff support bracket for play. Alignment shop will be able to tell you what is wrong, short of trying to find out what's up. Good luck

Right click on the picture and do something like "Copy Image Location".

Then come here, put do a paste. And then put [IMG] and the beginning of the web address and [/IMG ] at the end of the web address only remove the space from the second part. Just doing it so it will show up correctly in text format.

Here's the pics....

It almost looks like the SL crossmembers are not square to eachother, could be the angle of the pic messin' with my head though.

To me....it just looks like a simple case of incorrect adjustment of the torsion bars. Compare the angles of the CV's...pass side more angled, driver side more flat. But...i know this can't be what's wrong. But I think it's seriously that simple. Might be an extreme case of saggy torsion bar. How many miles on the truck? What SPR (spring rate) are the tortion bars? To find that, open up your driver side door...on the door tag, listed under SPR should be something like BBKK or 11CC or BK or 1C...something similar.

On a side note: Are the sway bar links mounted upsidedown? Is that a new Cv? Driverside ABS wire is not in stock location I don't think...possibly the hub was rotated into the incorrect positiion on the knuckle?

^^Those are just sidenotes that i noticed from the pics...

The swaybar links are correct. I really think it looks like the driver side torsion adjuster screw needs to be torqued up!

Im thinking they are the bump stop drop brackets(but that's only two).

BAM!

gold circular lookin' things are called "cam washers". They are used on the upper control arms to "kick" the arm out to put it into alignment. some trucks need them, some dont. Might as well bring those with you to the alignment shop just in case.

Gold square tubing....IDK what that is! lol....looks like my PA bodylift bed supports..but gold and not silver. idk what that is.

The bigger, heavier, boxed grey/black block i believe is one of the bump stop drop brackets. If no drop bumps were done, you should have 2 of those. *Don't worry...i bought my superlift used and had no clue what those were! Didn't see anything in the instructions I downloaded.
