Does it take a set?
Most roads are pitched toward the right for water runoff. This was clearly cleverly designed by the engineers so you will ride flat while underway
Heh, nice try... So, given that the frame/axle distance is different in the back by 1/2" what does that point at? The leaf springs ? What holds the axle in place off the frame ?
Leafs or shocks, but its gotta be the leafs.. Cant they just replace them ?
Aside from asking a dealer to fix, has anyone actually brought this to Ford's attention. Curious.
Dealership is shimming one side apparently... get it back tomorrow. Is this a viable fix? Can't they just replace the leafs ?.
Is this just the rear end, or is the front end off too? I plan to take a look at mine today. Thanks for all the info guys!
Update: mine seems to be sitting level.
Got it back from dealership after 10 days.. they shimmed the left side springs
Still looks a bit off, but better. They said it’s not guaranteed to be perfect, but since mine was so visually leaning, they shimmed it under warranty
I took the truck to a suspension shop.. Had them install a 2.5 front leveling kit. It looks pretty nice lifted, they said they tried to fix the lean. It still leans.. sigh..
Why is this so difficult to fix???
It's bizarre isnt it? Some have it and some don't so what is the difference that makes the difference. It's like the industry's dirty little secret. Ford, chevy, jeep, etc.. all have the issue. Blame it on the gas tank worked for a while I guess lol.
I have seen MANY threads on the Jeep forum talking about all the different things that might cause lean.. gas tanks, wrong springs, mismatched springs, etc... never a solution
Sounds like you just need to accept it..
Mine has the left Gangsta’ lean also...
With all the possible causes, is shimming the spring on one side really an acceptable fix? It seems to me that it's just a cheap way for the manufacturer to get by until the warranty period expires. I just hope mine is delivered level so I don't have to fight with Ford.
I would have thought that they would put the gas tank on the passenger side to somewhat counter balance the weight of the driver.
Sure hope this gets sorted out.
my reply is off topic, sorry....
huh, way over inflated - door sticker says tire pressure should be at 30 psi. Dealers are supposed to check that prior to delivery, but mine too was 45 all around. I lowered then to 30 and it feels a little sloppy to me, so I'm going with 35 now to try that. With so many wheel / tire size options, how can 30 psi be correct for all of us?
I think tire pressure would need to be pretty low to make a truck lean that much. I would guess that this is a suspension part defect. I do not agree that shimming it is the right answer. That is a weak work-around. Ford needs to find out what the root cause is and correct it with a recall.
