Question Spring or Shock issue?

I realized it that my truck is not balanced when I see from the backside.
The left of backside is little lower than the other side.
It is not big deal but kinda annoying me for beauty of my truck lol
What do you think about this problem?? if I bring to the mechanic, how much will be cost?? Thank you all!!

ps. for my future mod project I like to put 01+ grill and 06+ from bumper with fog light. I heard 06+ grill with 01+ bumper works but I do not know it word backward also.

You either have spring sag or a broken leaf. Mine did the same thing because of a broken leaf. Just as an fyi, you have to replace springs in pairs. Also, you will need new u-bolts and possibly new spring hangers and shackles. If the shackles and hangers look questionable, it will be better cost wise to change them out with the springs.
