I am going to have my left rear spring re-arched next week. The left rear sits about a half an inch lower than the right rear. There is a spring shop in town. The guy said to bring the truck over and let him take some measurements. Then bring him the spring and he can re-arch it to sit the truck level. Cost about $30 to $40 per spring.

Anyone ever done this? Could you actually have the truck raised a little bit by doing both springs?

spring

The whole passenger side of my truck is leaning over 1/2 in. Sure would like to know why. They have replaced front pass spring, rear pass spring, now they want to replace rear driver spring. I think its the frame and want to know why my truck is leaning where it is noticable. If you get it rearched, let me know how it worked. Thanks

Redfish if your truck is leaning after spring replacement take some measurements and see what is different. Measure from the axle to the frame on both sides front and rear. That should tell you if the spring is causing the lean or if the body is not level on the frame.

I measured my rear axle to frame and the left side is about 1/4" lower than the right. Carry that out to the fenders and it is a 1/2" or more. When I had the truck at the dealer for some warranty work I had them check the height. They claim 1/2" is wihin spec and would not cover it. Although he agreed that it is leaning 1/2".
