Try it, you never know. My thoughts are either sagged springs or bent frames. Your truck's old enough either is possible, and these things are known for flexy frames.[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

<font face="Comic Sans MS">I suggest you measure like I suggested last time and let us know what the results are from all the places, especially where the discrepancy starts as you progress through the measurements... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] It'll take about 5 minutes and it'll tell us whether a spring pack is messed up or the frame is messed up... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Seems much easier than swapping out spring packs to another set which might be equally questionable...[img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>

I noticed you only said the bed was leaning, not the whole truck. Sounds like body mounts to me. Does rear bumper &amp; cab set level?

<font color=green>Except that the bed doesn't use body mounts, it's bolted straight to the frame, metal on metal. So if it's leaning there is another problem there, either rust or a busted spring.
