    Good question, I have a 79 F250 with the 1 1/2 lean on the drivers side, still scratching my head.

    on my truck its only the front end that is leaning so i have no clue my buddy is ready to put a piece of metal in there just to make it even again dont know if that will work i might have to get ahold of a front end shop and have them look at it

    Mine is the front as well, I thought about adding a short lift block, but I'm not overly fond of the idea since it's the front.

    measure fom the frame to the ground and then measure from the body to the ground and this will enable you to tell wether it is in the suspension/frame vs. thee body. If it's in the body, check the body mounts, they will often start to squash out as they rust. If it's in the suspension/frame and you already replaced the springs(there fore assuming that the springmounts are all OK) it may be that the frame is twisted.

    Maybe it's the body sagging and not the frame. The body mounts rust out all the time.
    Look at your core support and see where the rubber donuts are sitting.

    Leaning Fords

    All Ford trucks lean towards the drivers side. I've about 6 of them now and they have all had the lean towards the drivers side. It's anywhere from 1/2" to 1".

    Personally, I think it has something to do with the track bar but I don't know that for certain.

    A TSB for a '95? Follow the instructions of BigDog. If it's the springs, bring it to a reputable springs shop, they should be able to even it out without any problem. I had one level out my '00 350 last year.
