Like this?




One of the dumbest things you could ever do to a truck. I would rather paint unicorns on my bedsides than make my truck "squat" in the back.

Is that seriously a thing? A Florida thing I guess?

That's mental retardation at it's finest. I didn't realize Florida had that many inbreeds floating around.

Florida, Carolinas, and California. Those are states where I've seen trucks like this. It all started with the prerunner lean.

Ah...states near water that have sand. I get it. Probably won't be seeing that around these parts then.

I'd say it more started with bro's who couldn't afford to do the rear after lifting the front so they played it off as cool. It's actually pretty natural for a properly setup prerunner to be lower in the back. Deavers run as they are supposed to, flipped hanger and all results in the front almost always being higher. Just how it goes. I hate it, stopped me from buying f31's a couple times. I can't stand the lean but again that doesn't mean the rear isn't setup properly necessarily.

Mines got rake, but I'm afraid if I take the stock block out, it'll squat

I've talked to some of the guys around here with trucks like that, and the answer to the question why usually includes something about how prerunners do it.

I don't know what's worse. Doing that to your truck or the fact that there is a 11 min video of idiots who have.
