My truck looks horrible. My question is, how do i know whats to high and to low. I cant be for sure. Its been in the shop a year, and i have small wheels on it. My check stability light comes on, but when i turn the key to the on position, i guess i hear the compressor because i hear something around the driver rear tire every time, and one time i heard a loud noise, but only once. Would i see the shock move? I take it its not a fuse since i hear something in the rear correct? Chey says i need 2 front sensors, but my truck looks so low in the back. I measured from the top of the right rear tire to the top of the wheel well, and the same on the other side, and the driver rear is sitting lower than the passenger by about 5 inches. The front looks like its ready to stand up its so high.

Im confused.

Five inches is ALOT. Are you sure you aren't missing a spring under the driver side?

That's why I wanted a pic, maybe it just seems like 5 inches. I know about the Chevy/GMC "lean", but 5 inches? If 5 inches is correct, I would also be checking springs, etc.

your stock compressor is in the rear driver side near the wheel, so that is the sound you're hearing. if you were missing a spring, you would be riding on your bump pad and not have any suspension in the rear pretty much. take it to the shop but im assuming you have by now!
