Default Torsion bar cranked on one side only!??

I have always found that this 2003 xlt drove like a tank. I put new shocks on and it didn't help out the front much. I figured it was because I put cheap shocks on it
...A couple of days ago a buddy at work was checking things out under the truck. He said somebody cranked up the torsion bar to the max on just the drivers side only! He brought it back down to match the passenger side and now the truck soaks up the bumps nicely. Why the hell would someone have done this??

It was easier than going on a diet?

It probably had something to do with getting the truck to sit level from side to side.

Or gross incompetence.


Or both.
