Default 2010 "XL" 4 cyl. 5 speed

My truck is sitting too high in the front and low in the rear. For those who have the same truck, is yours the same? I have a backflip cover and nothing else in the rear but the truck is low in the rear and a bit higher than stock in the front. I wonder if it is because the 4 cyl. engine is so much lighter than the 6 cyl. and this is allowing the front to rise higher and forcing the rear lower? I need to do something before I add weight for winter driving as I just had my new ATV in the bed (600 lbs.) and it wasn't pretty. Solutions? Are any of the 4 cyl. XL owners having similar problems? Thanks, Dave

Mine was like that but it was worn/broken springs. Yours is brand new, so that shouldn't be an issue for you.

My 2010 XLT is just a bit higher in the rear than the front. When I hitch up the boat or utility tlr and put a few things in the bed, it levels out.......
