Hey guys, I hope I'm in the right place here! My 2006 Colorado seems to be slightly leaning on the driver side....but only in the front as far as i can tell. I measured from the fender above the front tire and its about 1 1/2 inch lower than the passanger side What could the problem be? everything with the suspention is stock. Thanks....

Lol....the chevy lean! thats what by buddy said, but he said it was because of the fuel tank on the driver side. I wouldn't think that would be in the front only though

If it's from the front, that's because the driver side suspension sees the weight of the driver more than equally balanced with driver/passenger.

If you have torsion bars, you can raise up the low side easily, then get an alignment.

1.5" is pretty extreme though.


I thought "Chevy Lean" pertained to the rear droop?

So evenot with new springs it will eventually start sagging in a matter of months right? So before I put new drop springs upfront... cut the driver side? How much? Mines about an inch lower at most than the passenger side...

I personally won't be able to help with how to lower your vehicle. I don't have any experience in doing so and I don't know the calculations required to determine how much coil to cut off.

An no, sag won't be noticeable in a couple months. It's an 'over the course of time' thing.

Typically most people cut half a coil, no more than a full, but depending on if you have the belltech drop kit like I have, you shouldn't cut the springs, just remove the shims/spacers provided on the passenger side to bring that side down
