: Leaning to the left



LADE in the SHADE

I bought my 03 w/ 21000 miles. Its been around 4 months, and I'm noticing that the truck leans to the drivers side by one inch. I've confirmed this by taking out a tape measure and measured all 4 corners. Does anyone know what might cause this, and has this happened to anyone else?

I think mine does that too. I notice when it's in my garage.
I never measured yet, and I hear some kind of squeaking noises sometimes when I get out.

its the chevy lean. almost all GM trucks have it, some more noticeable than others. most likely caused by the gas tank and driver being on the same side.

As said this is common, my truck was was within a 1/4 inch in the rear from drivers to passenger side, my front was over an inch lower drivers to passenger side, and the front was also like most Escalade's sitting 2 inches lower than the back, to solve this problem I installed Ford torsion bar keys, now my truck is even front to back and within a 1/4 inch side to side. :)

Run the left torsion bar up and the right one down until even, and then get an alignment.

Nothing is wrong with your truck, it's normal.
If you must mess with it please be careful, you can get injured by adjusting things without the proper tools.
If you can live with it, live with it because nothing is broken.
