The bed, and it seems the entire right side of the vehicle sits a bit higher than the left. I notice this on other older model trucks. What is the reason?

Could be worn or broken struts. That would be the first thing I would check.

it would actually be worn out leaf springs or warped leaf springs or warped brackets......you do not have struts on the rearend or a vehicle

It's the good old chevy lean... It just happens. Most folks doing a 4/6 drop tend to adjust the rear shackle length to level it. ITs really noticeable on lowered trucks.

worn/bent springs or stabilizers. my 89 riviera leans the same way too. most peeps make faster right turns so naturally the right side will be raised. for show time u could try putting the vehicle on a slightly inclined slope to try bending it more even. just remember not to race it on said incline; if too steep a turn, it could roll over. i've parked it lately on an incline too and the car looks more even now. nothing is really wrong its just the fast right turns.. a coworker asked the same thing. ;]
