    Can anyone help me with some ideas? I've installed the belltech 4/6 flip kit. I now notice the truck is leaning 1 inch lower on drivers side. When I jack the frame beside drivers leaf spring the entire truck levels out??? Is this a worn out leaf spring? It looks fine, but is there a easy button way to fix this or am I going to have to again remove the leafs and replace them? Thanks in advance!

    Could be. I would also check your leaf spring bushings. My Suburban is leaning toward the driver's side and I know my front bushings are almost non existent.

    if you are happy with the height you can disassemble and mix and match the leafs till they sit equal. I did that on my current truck . or get yourself a fat girlfriend :rotflmao:
