    UPDATE: Moved the rear 1.25” spacer to the passenger side coil. Then reset the KDSS by opening the valves two turns and rocking the truck back and forth. Finally, raised the passenger side with KDSS valves open to the same height as the driver, then closed the valves, and finally set the truck back down. I”m now within 1/8 inch driver to passenger in the rear!

    Many thanks to all of you for helping me solve this issue. Appreciate you guys very much. Love how this forum gets to help one another save $$ and spend it on our mods. :)

    Rock on! -Raimie

    Nice, my advice is to not obsess too much over the lean. I find it comes and goes on mine depending on how and where I’ve driven it.

    My front end is basically level within 0.25” all the time, but my rear end will vary between 0.250” and 1” of lean. I rarely get over 1” of lean now though, but it does happen occasionally, and usually just the rear. I’ve mostly decided to stop looking for it, but still measure more than I care to admit :anonymous:

    Have any of you noticed more lean once parked, engine off, than when driving?

    I had a theory that most of this lean is static, not while the truck is in motion. So I found a level spot and did some measurements. After sitting over night I had a 1/2” passenger side lean front and rear. I drove the truck around the block, parked, and left the engine running. Less than 1/4”. I turned the engine off and waited for a bit. Back to 1/2”.

    My theory is that some pressure that builds in the accumulators to balance the system while driving, bleeds back out once the engine is off and so the rams get a little pressure which lifts the driver side up while parked. This would help explain why the valve based lean correction works and also why it doesn’t tend to stick long term.

    Happens all the time. It will work itself out over time. If it gets really bad, just loosen the KDSS valves 1.5 turns (have to count exactly) and rock the truck back and forth. Then close them back to the original location.

    He said right side. That’s the passenger side unless he’s in GB, Australia, Japan etc.
