    Hi my name is Michael and I have front passenger side droop. About 2.5"s. 1" due to my core support. The other 1.5"s due to my leaf pack on pass side is flating out. Why only the pass side and not both equally you ask? Good question, I think it has something to do with my drop pitman arm being on the driver side causing the drive side to see less flex. Truely out of all honesty I dont know why, but it really hurts my feelings to see it lean so much to one side. Solution you ask? Well I've put some serious thought into it and the best idea that I can come up with is as follows. Run 38psi in the front pass side tire, run 22psi in the front driver side tire, run 22psi in the rear pass tire, and finally run 14psi in the rear driver side tire. I think this would work out great in making the truck appear to set level. Yes some of you right now are wondering what kinda of uneven wear your tires will get. Well simple... just rotate them every 250 miles or so. Oh and do not I repeat do not forget to adjust the psi in each tire after rotating them, it kinda defeats the purpose.


    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Oh and one more thing... Who else has passenger side body droop?!? /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Yeah seriously for the longest time I did too. I 1st noticed it about 2 years ago and since then its got visually worse. Especially after I changed out my stock pitman arm for an aftermarket pitman made for a 6" lift. I've only got a 4" lift on the truck so I'm thinking this might be limiting the flex on the driver side. Doh
