    Could be worn out body mounts, sagging springs, rusted out body mounts

    I've seen this a couple of times. Both were caused by a cracked leaf spring.

    Sounds like it has a case of the Ford leans....I have noticed that most all F-150's have a slight lean on the driver's side....Dont know why but I noticed it when I owned my 90 XLT way back when and have noticed it ever since. I am from KY originally so maybe it has something to do with walking the hills... :D

    My 98 did that because the gas tank was on that side.
    Also my current 87 LB does that by about 1 inch after i beat it at the BadLands. I think i warped the rear drivers spring pack.
