I check the body mounts and the taller drivers side is actually 1/4” lower So I’d assume that this sign the issue.My truck has a lift puck on front driver bc the body leans from a wreck. I guess whoever fixed the front end decided that was easier than repairing the couple messed up body mounts.
I think that could cause a slight lean but as the new spring settles the front of the 80 has a 2” lean to the passenger side. And the OME Js I took off were within 1/2” which I could totally live with. I think boldilocks was into something about me getting a 3.5” tapered spring. Because the new warrantied spring sits perfectly at 2.5”.Honestly I feel like it's more trouble that it's worth to try to eliminate lean. Mine might have one? But if it does it's 1/4" tops and I am fine with that. If you are using the cruiser correctly it should never be on level ground so who cares if it has a barely noticeable lean in the driveway?
Now that I've said that let's get even more technical with this. Could an improper panhard adjustment cause a slight lean as the lower spring perches would not be in line with the uppers? The first 3 coils on my driver side were touching until I got an alignment. Now they are almost identical to the passenger side.

That is how it is currently sitting with a fresh install. In its natural habitat at the gas pump.
I think the lift height numbers Dobinsons advertises are for a fully loaded expedition rig. The folks in OZ tend to throw a lot more weight into theirs.
For example in that photo the rear is sitting just under 3" of lift with a 4x4 labs rear, some gear in the back, the RTT, and a drawer system loaded with all of my tools. My rig is about 5700 lbs with two passengers and no camping gear.
Thanks for the pic. Wow that's really tall!
Were the spring compressors required for the job or cold the front axle drop enough to get them in without it? I'm getting ready to complete this myself.
