Leaning to left on SOA and SF..

In the process of doing a SOA and SF and when I get it all done its leaning to the left, so I switch leaf springs from left to right and it still didn't help. I also put 2 inch add a leafs in.. Should I buy new ones stock height, or buy new 2 inch lift springs. Gonna be running 35x12.50 BFG km2's..

Please don't be insulted but could one perch eyelet not be the same height or too far forward or backwards?

Ab an inch difference both front and rear. And the rear perches are factory, the front I welded my self and I'm confident there the same.

You switched both front and rear and it stell leaned?

If you buy new spring (and you will need to eventually because the front will warp into an 's' shape) get some custom springs made for something with an SOA for the front. It will be money well spent.

And that rig looks really good!

You can get stock height springs that work with SOA/SF. Bjsoffroad.com has some great stuff. I went with Rustys though because they're cheaper.

Time for some measuring. Start from the bottom and work your way up, spring perches, spring mounts, shackle bolts, frame at the four corners. Then level the frame side to side and do it again. Go from the concrete floor, use a level for vertical measurements, record, compare. Something will show it's self as out of whack. That's a pretty big difference

Make sure they are setup for SOA. The second spring needs to be longer, almost all the way to the mounts.
