Default Front coils sagging

There is a noticeable difference in height between the driver and passenger side of my truck. I thought that maybe after the lift and new struts that things would even out but they haven't. Anyone have any experience with sagging coil springs? Truck is a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4. Nothing aftermarket other than the lift.

It's not sagging coils. It's the "dodge lean". Google it. From what I've read the battery and gas tank on the same side of the truck cause it. Engineering mistake. I put the 2'' leveling lift in mine and it seems to have fixed the issue. I got lucky I think.

The "Dodge lean"......Chrysler really didn't put time and money into these trucks when they were building them. Thank God Ram is a seperate entity from Dodge now. I had a 2015 Ram 1500 SLT as a rental for the past week and it was beautiful. I can't say enough about the ride quality.

It's not a "Dodge Lean". If that were true, you'd see this everywhere. I didn't have this issue until after I replaced one shock on my passenger side. Now it sits mega low on that side. Hoping it goes away after my Bilstein 5100's go on next week.
