    Are the coils properly seated in the isolators up top and in the pockets of the LCAs?

    The weight distribution of a vehicle isn't even across all four corners. Small differences from side to side isn't uncommon. How much difference do you have? If its marginal then I wouldn't sweat it and I surely wouldn't replace brand new coils with another set of brand new coils without knowing definitively that they are the culprit.

    Agree. I have a small difference too. The drivers side is about 1/2" lower than than passengers side.

    The fuel tank is located on the driver's side of the the truck and if full or near full at 8 lb per gallon and 30 gallon of fuel we are talking 240 pound more weight on the drivers side. Add 240 pound to the passenger side and see how much difference it makes.

    The side where the sagging is bottoms out pretty hard on any bump so the spring is pretty weak
