Can anyone tell me what might be going on here? It looks like the rear has blocks, the front springs may be oem or might be taller idk, but they are bowed out it looks like. And the front right side is definitely sitting a little lower. Just wore out springs hopefully?

I would say somebody made their own lift. Those springs aren’t for that truck. Hard to tell but the clocking looks wrong and there seems to be no level top on the spring for the bucket to sit on.

That sounds about right. I plan on a new lift with springs so that'll fix the issue. Just wanted to make sure there wasn't something more going on. Thanks

Good luck on you build.

I think it has one of those overload springs on top of the stack. Also no lower overload leaf.
Good points.
I was looking at the block. Didnt really take a close look at the springs.

Yeah, those front springs aren't stock, the bottom first wrap isn't going around the spring retainer cup, it's just kinda sitting there from the looks of it...
