    it just noticed the other day that my truck sits lower on one side in the front
    and the tire looks like the top is tilted in. is this a camber thing or will a sagged- out spring make it look like this?

    bent tube??

    A saggy spring will lower that corner of the truck,but wont make the wheel tip inward,that is either a camber problem,or more likely a bent axle tube--if the truck has been off-roaded hard,and got airborne a few times,it might have a bent axle tube--I see some trucks with plows that had the same problem,too much weight for a 10 bolt to handle when driven by a leadfoot that doesent slow down for speed bumps and potholes--an axle truss rod helps beef the axle up and prevent bent tubes.....look your frame over closely for cracks too,its not that uncommon to see cracked frames on GM trucks too..:crazy:
