A case of the lean

My "14 GMC crew cab Z71 has case of the lean on the driver side, I measured about an inch difference from the other side. It has only 65k miles on it, what would be causing this, surely the springs aren't worn already ..

Re: A case of the lean

Is this something nw or has this lean always been an issue?
Could have a failed bushing in the suspension or an extremely failed ball joint.
Do you do any wheeling?

Re: A case of the lean

It drives fine, no cluncks or clangs when hitting a bump, don't off road it. the left side is lower than the right front and back. I've had it for less than a year and noticed it shortly after buying it. Should've inspected it a littler better....

Re: A case of the lean

Welcome to the Chevy Lean. Most of them do it because all the weight is on the driver's side. What I did on mine is I had a tool box on under the tonnea cover on the passenger rear side that had my small floor jack, tools and chains in it. It sorta balanced out the lean for 10+ years.

I have hear of replacing or adding extra front spring pads to the driver side will also balance it out some.

I've thought about doing that, 1" front and rear. Why why why.
