Default My TRX-4 has a body lean... Solutions?

So my Bronco has a lean to the left (driverside). The truck will start off level when I set it down, and then when it settles over time but the left side will sag more.

My current theory is that it may be shock sag. All the springs are set to the same height, but maybe something internally is allowing it to sag? It's just weird that it is only the front and back on one side though.

I came to this conclusion by measuring the fenders and skids with the body off. Currently when measuring the same spots side to side, the driverside is about 1/4" lower. I've repeated this multiple times on multiple days and always get the same result.

Any recommendations or solutions from past experience would be greatly appreciated.

Is it possible you're heavy on that side?

Yeah that's a plausible reason, but I'm not sure that's it. The chassis is relatively stock, a majority of the mods I have done are below that level.

check the shock as I know from building sport kit, this side is adjust different then the other, as the steering is there, so the spring is more compress, so maybe on your truck is lose or have something that "pull" it down.

Take off one shoe. It'll look perfect.

But seriously, the instructions that come with the Kit version tell you to set the drivers side front spring collar 4-mm lower (more compressed) than the rest .... maybe that's why.
