Default Left side sitting lower

I was just out in the garage (still trying to get that sticky residue off from removing the rain guard...with no success by the way) and I noticed the truck is sitting lower on the left front side. The space between the frame and the tire is decreased on the driver's side as opposed to the passenger side which makes the truck look offset when looking at it headon.

Could this be because whoever cranked the tbar before I owned it didn't get it even, the bolt broke on this side, or would this be something else?

Please say it's an easy fix! LOL

I would say it is the common ranger lean. Because once you factor in fuel tank and driver. However with it on the driver side I would say t-bar not equal.

So I probably just need to get up under there and crank the driver's side? What do you guys use to determine whether both sides are equal or not? A level? (or is that a really stupid thing to say?)

Flare ground? That would be just above the tire on the frame? Yes/No?

Here's pics: (sorry about the dirt, gave Spike a bath after these were taken.)


Passenger's side


Driver's side
