Default Trucks doing an endo

Why is the back end of my truck higher up than the front end? I have the same size wheels and tires all around. My ball joints and steering knuckles are getting fixed now could that be the culprit? I just dont know why it is so un even

Your not to familiar with trucks are you? The back of your truck is designed to sit higher than the front of the truck so when you have a load in it, the fronts not aiming in the air and the backs not dragging the ground. If its anything excessive from others of the same year it could be the coils are worn or the torsion bars are sagging depending on the year of the truck.

----------

Didn't see that ur sig says you have a 94 so the coils could be collapsing from being worn

exactly what MB said. Also if you have had new springs put on the rear it will be even more noticeable due to fresh springs in the rear vs. the worn springs in the front.
