So I was looking at my truck this afternoon and noticed that it was not sitting level at the back end. I decided to break out the measuring tape just to be sure. I measured 39" from the ground to the top of the wheel well on the passenger side and 38" on the drivers side. Just to further verufy it I measured the frint and they matched at 33".

Anyone know what this could possibly be caused by?

Check the rear shackles to see if they are about to fail and send the spring through the bed.

Mine isn't level either... remember the fuel tank is on the drivers side.

5-6" of rake though!?

Do you need to go on a diet?

Probably fuel tank weight like others have said. But 38" in back to 33" in front, that's a serious stink bug look there! Did you measure while your truck was on an incline? That would transfer more weight to the front. If not, then your springs might be done in the front.

As a reference, before my level with stock tires I was 34" up front and 37.5" in back. Now, with leveling kit, air bags, and 275/70/18 tires I am 37.5" up front and 38" in back. And my side to side in the rear never differed by more than a 1/2".

I'm at 39" all around with mods in sig. Was at 36.5" front, 38.5" in back before mods.

OK when I wrote those numbers they didn't look right but I went with them. I just remeasured on my garage floor and I'm 35 7/8" at the front both sides and 38 7/8 on the passenger side and 38 3/8 on the drivers. I guess I'm down to half an inch. I'll see at the end of the week what it's like with an empty tank.

I had the truck in the dealership getting both from wheel bearings replaced under warranty and had them check the rear. He checked out all the rear shackles and then for S&G measured a 2011 T on the lot.

Yup it too was down 1/2". He said all is normal and not to worry.
