just a thought.. if you raise the rear end of the truck will the panhard rod not be long enough anymore and pull the rearend toward the passenger side making the passenger side rear tire stick out much further than on the driver side?

Just a thought - sometimes the front left (driver's) wheel is back a bit thus a tad lower to compensate for the crown of the road and to prevent right side drift/steering wheel offset. I know Hyundai did that.

^ I never thought of that....could be possible.

We gathered some rear coil spring part numbers a while back and associated them with their lengths and found that most if not all of the trucks (except the RT's from what we could tell...it was a small sample though) had a longer spring on the driver side, by about 1/2" give or take.

Also, with a panhard bar in the rear, yes the axle will "drift" side to slide a little, but shouldn't be 1.25" I don't think. I'm thinking more like 1/2" absolute max.
