Unhappy Truck is leaning?

I got a 94 ranger, 2wd and it is leaning towards the left side, its got brand new shocks that i just installed and the leaf springs and spring hanger look brand new. I checked tire pressure to make sure its even on both sides. But the back right side is still an inch higher than the left. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I assume your talking about the passenger side

If so it is the well known "ranger lean" they do that because the fuel tank on the driver side so when someone sits in there it is "level"

Yeah, fuel tank, driver and most of the hoses and wiring all on the left side, makes the right sit a lil higher. Stiffer sway bars and moving a lil weight around can correct this.
