Torsion bar bolts

Hello, I have searched and found people ask about there drivers side adjustment bolt being in further, but mine is actually the oppisite. The passenger side is in quite a bit further than the drivers side, but the truck appears level and the tire place said the height is the same on both sides, so I was just wondering if anyone elses truck is like this as well. The truck is prekeyd, but the bolts were put back in at the same setting they came out, or very close, so it was like this before the mod. I made sure the adjuster nut plate was seated back in the correct position in the slot in the frame as well. I just thought it was weird that the passenger bolt was in further, rather than the drivers side one due to the extra weight on that side. I don't know if it really even matters as long as the truck sits level on both sides, but I wouldent mind hearing others thoughts about this.

Thanks

Probably just "sagging" torsion bars.

How, the bolts were like that before, I got the truck with 2700k miles on it, and the bolts im sure were still set that way. I just dont know why the passenger side bolt would be in further than the drivers side one instead.

Didn't even notice your truck is an 08. Could be a number of things though. Either way, it's nothing to worry about.

Yeah I didn't think it really was too much, I think as long as the truck is even on both sides that is what matters. Just seemed odd to me though lol.
