Pretty much. I can't guarantee that it's the same issue I had, but mine looked exactly like yours, so it's probably the same.

I wondered the same thing. Drove the truck like that for a few months. Then, after I switched them, I couldn't believe I didn't do it sooner.

I will probably switch them during the summer. While they do look worse sticking out like they do, it helps my little brothers and sister get in and out from the back.
