95 S-10 4x4
I noticed this from the back when its still on flat ground. I never
noticed it from the front until yesterday, but it leans the same on the
whole side. The guy I bought it from said he wanted the thing to
"look" like a 4x4 and had new leaf springs put on the back. It was
then too high in the back, so he had the torsion bars raised to meet
it. I guess its odd to not have noticed this before, and I'm going out
to measure the distance from the ground to the highest point in the
wheel well right now to see what that says. I wonder if the torsion
bars are out of whack and causing this lean? and whether it can be
adjusted of course to make it right.
Was he a "fat guy" not to be mean (I fit this) but, many trucks lean to the
left after a while due to weight on that side from the driver. i.e. spring
wear. Take it to a good front end or suspension shop, could be an easy fiz
or a major sob.
No, he wasn't. But there was one owner before him, whom I don't know
Funny thing is, I looked for and did not notice this when I bought it,
because it was
high mileage. I'm only 180 myself, and I've only had it 7 mos. anyway.
