noticed a month after i buy the truck its leaning to the right, so i put it on a level surface i used the frame rack at work, i measured the rear of the frame and its all good

then i measured from the frame rack to the bottom of the 1/4`s and fenders, and my measurements told me its a inch to the right, well off it went to the dealer

they tell me nothing is wrong, no leaks, sensors all good, bags have no leaks, i saw nothing leaking, compressor cycles fine, when it has a load the system does its job

fastforward to today, once again dealer tells me nothing wrong with it, no leaks, and it measures, well i put it back on the frame rack i made my own measurements and its still leaning to the right

im at a loss, if i go to a different dealer im going to hear the same thing any suggestions and info would be great

Go to a diff dealer. We've had to "level" a few Trailblazers, Raniers... They just have to adjust the rear sensors.

Its normal for the pass side front to be a bit lower. Can't adjust it... Unless you put in adjustable coilovers

The Belltechs are good and cheap. Level out the rear and be done. My truck and many others I lowered are level without coil overs. It takes time, but can be done.

You can buy the struts through the site, or I have an out side source. Up to you. Price wise, depends on how much you wanna do. A slight drop, struts and bag level only you're looking at 200.

I'm in the Elgin area.

Checked with the GM dealership that I work at, but I'm wondering if there's anyway that I can fix this myself? If I could save myself the trouble of having to pay for it I'd be happy. Thanks for any help.
