It comes form the factory like that in order to compensate for the weight of the driver + gas tank. That way the truck will be level instead of having a "gangsta lean" lol.

By the title of the thread I thought maybe you broke a torsion bar in half. Such an emergency situation.

Welcome to the site. I also thought something was seriously wrong. When I did my crank, I just made sure the fenders were the same height.
