Have a rough country 4" lift with da "gangsta lean"

Got da gangsta lean up front. Measured from the tops of each tire to fender flare and passenger side is 4" and drivers side is 4.75". Anyone know of a way to correct this or how to get RC to replace my springs?

Not 100% sure but I would just find the invoice and call Rough Country. My skyjacker 2.5 has a 'gangster lean' too

This sounds obvious but... are SURE you parked ABSOLUTELY level? I thought My Black Diamond 3" leaned, but it was just my driveway + no track bars + soft springs. DOH!

Well it is in the garage, my jeeps natural habitat when it is not in the woods. I hope my floor is not that damned unlevel, but hey anything is possible. I'm gonna retorque my shackles and see if it helps. Gonna drive it to work tomorrow and i'll measure it there too. But hey YJFalcon, thanks for making me feel like an idiot if that is the case!

It was on it when I bought it, maybe 2 years, 2 and a half max. Not really THAT noticable, like I said it is .75" of difference. But I am particular about my rig! No pics.

They could be old RC springs that are sagging, but we need a picture.

ALWAYS thinking outside the box!

Common sense is surprisingly, not that common.

I highly doubt that they will do anything for a non-original owner on 2+ year old set of leaf springs.

There is no telling what the PO did with the Jeep.

Mine has leaned to the left since I first put the lift on. It also leaned to the left with the 2.5 inch Rancho lift that I took off. I figure I just have a liberal Jeep. Actually, I think it has more to do with not running a swaybar or track bars.

I don't run front or rear trac bars so I am not for certain just yet. I do run a sway bar with disconnects. I am going to look at it tongiht when I get home. Was going to drive it today, but got lazy this morning. If it leans, then it leans, no big deal if it cannot be fixed.
