I have the sneaky suspicion someone replaced 1 lower control arm and 1 torsion bar in my truck before. One lower control arm was slightly cleaner than the other when I bought it, and the end of one torsion bar was rusty where the other one really wasn't. And then while getting around to cranking my torsion bars today to level it out, I noticed that one side was sticking out farther than the other by a little bit. Sure enough...measured the fender clearance to the ground. Drivers side was sitting higher, and the bolt was run in a bit further. Had to crank the passenger side about 5 more turns to level it out.

Yea a place my dad works driving a dump truck part time and does snow removal in the winter. Called the owner today because I saw they were hiring an Equip mechanic. They start at 19 an hour and would send me for my cdl, if I drove I could make 26 an hour.

Also posted on CL to do local welding work lol.

On my 05 the bolts were different lengths
