    I have a 2000 Silverado 4x4 w 182k miles. It leans to the drivers side (enough to piss you off), and has done so for about 30-40 k miles. I have replaced the rear leaf springs (the whole ball-o-wax) with new ones, as well as replaced the torsion bars with new 3/4 ton bars. I don't the the frame is twisted, because it seems to lean throughout the length of the vehicle evenly. even when torquing the bars on the driver side it helps only slightly.

    I'm not that heavy...

    Any ideas?

    The added weight of the gas tank on the drivers side has been known to cause the "chevy Lean" over time

    even w/ brand new shocks/torsion bars?

    I replaced them less than 5k miles ago, about 3 months.

    If the TB's are good then no.

    Could be the rear springs. As far as i know you can not incorrectly key a TB when installing it.
