My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
How was it lowered? It may possibly be an installation issue.

Was gas tank full?

"Pints a pound the world around"
8 pints in a gallon so a gallon weights 8 pounds, well slightly less since gasoline weighs less than water

10 gallons = 80lbs
15 gal = 120lbs

The springs on drivers side can sag after a while because of gas tank and drivers weight over the years

New battery. Let's see what happens. Now I just have to figure out why it's leaning to one side. .
Previous owner named it Ilean. It decided to lean to the left out of revenge.

Alternative theory: Truck's drunk.

I'm gonna assume you are not feeling anything strange on braking. That can happen with a broke something in the rear suspension.

No truck runs fine . I didn't realize it was leaning till my friend said something. I'm gonna pull the bed off this weekend and see whats going on with it. If it is the leaf I'm gonna have to figure out what I'm going to do.

Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
