I remember one time a leaf spring on rear was bad and caused a lean to on one side of the front as well. check you leafs on the back most likely the passenger side too, I'd look at those ball joints too.

I had to put sway bar links on mine last year they were jingling around and hitting bumps hard but no lean that I noticed, I did change all the bushings and the bolts. Front end feels a lot better. One side could of been over tightened causing a lean I guess hope that fixes it up.

Thank you for the info. This is the first for me I have never seen this happen on any vehical ownd or other wise. And there is stll a little lean. I cheched all the body mounts and found them the same on both sides.So Im at a loss I do have the truck sit a lot thats why its only got 25 thousand miles anfs like new.

PS. A little more info. I notice the leaning more going down the road its like the sway bar is not pushing the front end level on uneven roads. Shouldn't it send force to the tire on the lower side to give a even level ride? Plus if I hang the front end for awhile and then set it down it almost completely level if not level but for awhile and then its back to leaning. Any ideas are very very help full. THANK YOU...

I have hears that the factory leafs on rear are not perfectly moulded on the ends and this can cause a problem and I have heard that the torsion or sway bar is cranked in more on one side or one side not cranked in as far or need adjustments, They have similar issues with Chevy trucks and call it the Chevy lean. Dealer says if its with in a 1/2 inch its with in spec but do have shimes to place in where ever there needs it.

Update to this issue 3/8/2017. I have still had the issue till now. I added a 1.5 heavy duty spring to the front to lift the front from the ford forward tip. Then in till I figure out how much to add to the rear to level it and I think its 1''. I aired up my air bags to level with the front end on each side separately and guess what NO more leaning and I put in way more air in the side that has the lean then the other so even know it all looks the same and there is NO broken leafs I must have a flat leaf pack on one side. Its the only thing I can think of . But dose any one know if the rear end axel shifted a little can that make the truck lean to one side because I think its off a little.
