Question Rear Truck Lean

I am new to posting so I did no know where to post this question. I know it got posted in the "Newbie" section but I wanted to post it here too.

First off, this forum has been great to get answers and ideas. I just purchased a 2011 Ram 1500 Big Horn and have had it two weeks. The truck is great except that it has a driver's side lean from the rear.

The lean is about a 1/2". Maybe I am being picky but I paid a lot of money for the truck. I have a 32gal. fuel tank and have read other threads about the gas tank causing the lean. I have checked the truck on serveral different surfaces and at different gas tank levels but still have the lean.

I showed it to the dealer and my sales rep. told me that he had never heard of a lean with these trucks. I am looking for some insight if anyone else has had this problem or any other answers. Thanks

I recall just about every car I've owned having a slight lean to the driver's side... couple things to consider... gas tank, steering components, battery, etc... and the driver's side is the side that is occupied the most frequently... my 06 did it, my 09 challenger did it, and my 11 does it...

Hope this helps.
