The pad you are refering to was installed from the factory just on the pass. rear. It does make the truck slightly lower on that side , but when you get in and start driving down the road it does even out. I do have a Scout that has the same appearence with a 4 inch lift and 32 inch tires. I have noticed what has helped on it is running gas charged shocks instead of hydrolic shocks. Also make sure your body mounts are not throwing your measurments off, take your numbers off the frame and not the body.
