Hello all,

I have a 2005 4x4, 4 door Titan. I've noticed that it has a lean to it. It seems to be at least 3/4" lower on the front passenger side and about 1/2" lower on the back passenger side. When I was at the dealership I noticed another Titan with a similar lean to it. I have 34,750 miles on the truck and my warranty is up after 36,000 miles. I said something to the Nissan service department about it and they said they didn’t know what to do and implied that it may have been my fault some how. Dose anyone know anything about this problem and if so dose any one have any suggestions?

I recall something like this being asked some time ago... The basic explanation that was proposed was that the truck was lighter sprung on the passenger side so that when the fuel tank is full and the driver were sitting in the truck, it would be even. I think that's a load of crap! Still, no one offered anything better, so that was accepted by the thread starter....

My thoughts would go to worn shocks/coilovers. With that kind of mileage, it would not be uncommon for the stock shocks to have given up. Just my .03......(adjusted for inflation)

Wow thats a lot of lean. I would have them start by checking the springs and making sure that thy have the same spring rate. Maybe you have soft/defective springs. There is some lean normally in the titan because of th location of the fuel tank but is sounds like you have more than average.

And you're leaning the wrong way, usually we lean down on the Drivers side, due to the fuel tank being outside that frame area.

Easy solution is the RAS spring setup, which can be individually adjusted for left or right side. Search for RAS, I can't recall it's full name, it is a 250 dollar adjustable spring addon. Very good for towing. Reactive Active Suspension?
