Default S10 Lean ..... Why??

I looked through the Chassis & Suspension threads and didn't see anything about the "S10 Lean" .... My truck sits about 1" lower on the drivers side front and rear. I'm switching over to the QA1 Coilover for the front and that should level it out. What do I do about the back end I still have leaf springs? I'm also a member of the S10 Forum and I haven't come up with a satisfactory answer yet. Everyone seams to just accept it or the say it's the fuel tank. Grrrrr .... What have you guys done?

no .... s10forum.com ..... it's mainly a bunch of low riders and custom show trucks. Since I still have the V6 in it ..... My mom (a.k.a. my wife) says I'm not allowed to hang out over there. LMAO

We actually talked about this some time ago, I forget who made the post, but it seems if I remeber correctly , who ever it was determined after taking his apart, the front left spring was in fact shorter(weaker) than the right side. I just cant remember who it was though, probably last year some time,......

It's got brand new springs, shocks, Control arms, etc..... the frame has 150K ish miles, but everything is new now. In order to fix the lean in the front I'm going with the coilovers. I'm just kinda at a loss for fixing the rear suspension.

if you lowered it than you will get the chevy lean. S10forum has a writeup on it. Usually you can put a rubber spacer from belltech in it and it will fix it. Only will need one for the front and entire truck will level out.
