Why dose my F250 front end lean to passanger side?
I replaced all shocks and passanger side
front end coil sping and I still have a little
lean to front end. I see nothing to adjust but
my be sway bar arms but even there all
most exstended the same lenght on each
sode. If that would even make a diffrence.
Its a 2009 super duty with 25 thousand
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 have found the back leafs to be in great shape still like new plus I have air bags on rear of the truck as well. The leanings just the front passanger side for some reason. Ill have to check ball joints but it drives strate down road with no noise or pulling it just leans. Thanks for any help.
I found that with my truck on the ground I loosend the drivers side sway bar link bottem bolt and. To my suprise my whole front end droped down and almost completely level. So Im guessing most of my leanings the sway bar. My link ends have no side to side movement and are stiff so it must be the bushing hanging it up or somthing?
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.
Thanks for the info..
