    Is it normal for these trucks to lean to one side after a while? I put my dirt bike in the back (left side) about three days ago, and have had my sway bar disconnected. It looks to be leaning down a bit on the left side. Any suggestions, I am going home from school, so the bike will be out soon. /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    well if you have alot more wieght on the one side then it will lean. If that dosnt do it check tire presure, then if that still dosnt do it i dont realy know what to say.

    when i had my factory springs it used to lean to the drivers side, it was because of my gas tank, or the fact that im a fatass (160lbs) but i think its the gas /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif tank. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My front Drivers side springs have a kink in it which causes my 77 to sit higher on that side. Might check your springs, make sure everything is all good down there.


    In the pic you can see it in the process of being bent... ops!
