Sagging truck bed?!?!
my 96 has a slight sag towards the drivers side. looking from the back it is very apparent, but not so much from the front. the passenger side is almost a full 1 inch higher in the back when i measured the wheel well - to - tire height. in the front, the passenger side is 3/4 inch higher than the drivers side. it has 160,000 miles (i know it is a lot), a clean title (but maybe wrecked if that could cause this). ive been told saggy leaf springs (no cracks in springs). i just had new shocks put on but was wondering what could be wrong and what could fix it?

im weary of spacers but let me know what could/should be done.

springs or the bed was damaged and not repaired right i say its time for new leaf springs on both sides

^^^ I agree, might check the distance between each corner of the bed and make sure it is true, then check your spring height on each side of the axle.

Could be a damaged bed rail or spring . If you could post some pics that might help .

yea i think it is saggy springs. i think what happened was the shocks were ignored so long that the springs got weak. maybe something i need to do in the future. thanks a lot guys.
