My truck has the stock suspension, and I am running 285 tires (pressures even). When I measure my heigth from the ground to the wheel well, I hahe 41 3/4" on the passenger side, but only 39 3/4" on the drivers side. This is with the truck sitting on level ground, with an empty bed. On the passenger side, the bottom leaf is not touching the other leafs, but on the drivers side, they are all tight. The truck only has 9k miles on it, has never carried a heavy load, or been in an accident.
Is there some way to adjust the truck for an even heigth?

You do have to compensate for the fuel tank and perhaps a FULL tank; but 2 inchs is quite alot. I'd say something is deffinately wrong.

You need to adjust that with the front torsion bars. If you measure the front I bet you will find it is not level either. What ever side is higher, turn up the torsion bar on the opposite corner if you have enough threads. Otherwise lower the other side until all is level.

What hill said. most are low on the drivers front, and high in the passenger rear.

That's what worked for me, but 2" does seem like an awful lot...
