    2015i suspension sitting 1/2 inch higher on drivers side front/rear

    Hi Folks,
    I just noticed last night that my 2015i (39K miles) sits 1/2 inch higher on the drivers side then the passenger side.
    I thought my eyes were deceiving me, so i took out a measuring tape and measured the top of the tire up to the bottom of the fender and the gap between both the rear tire & front tire to the fender on the drivers side is close to 1/2 inch higher then the passenger side.

    Question: what could be causing this? Is this a magnetic ride issue, or would this be the springs or would this be the shocks?

    Will bring this up with the dealer when i have the truck in for service next month. Just want some info from you all before bringing it in.

    Thanks!

    The springs support the weight of vehicle so that is the first suspect area. But the rear air shocks also support some weight so there could be a problem there.
    But there are other less likely things that could cause the lean.

    May be the so-called "Chevy lean." Google it. Several of my GM trucks developed this over the years, but I never did anything about it.
