    Arent those factory set at that angle? I see them that way a lot. They designed them level in the new body styles.

    That's funny... My last two trucks came with the ones you have now. I "upgraded" to the ones you took off. :D

    If I was going to upgrade my mirrors I would get a set of CIPA mirrors. I had them on my 02 chevy. I think they look even better than the factory mirrors. I would like to replace my mirrors on my 08 chevy. I don't like the two different levels on factory mirrors.

    the convex part on the gm tow mirrors are not large enough and if they arent leveled then they arent worth a squat. had this issue when we installed them on ours.
