Default Zj leaning towards pass side

Ive seen this topic beat to death but I couldn't find any real answers. Ok here's where I stand.. Always 3/4" to 1" on pass front wheel. Truck never been wheeled. ive tried 4..yes 4 different sets of springs. 4 brand new shocks. Pulled sway bars and checked for straightness, re-installed with all new soft parts. Let truck settle, loosened and re-torqued all bolts but still leaning! Im tearing my hair out and im sick of turning wrenches. All stock components. Truck is straight with no body or uni-body damage. Im 2 days from burning this thing. I know its not a huge lean but it shouldn't lean at all and it boils my blood. Ive measured every point under the truck and its just that side. Track bar? Steering? Moon gravity? If anybody had an answer on this and lives close enough drinks on me

At this point I would just add a 3/4 or 1" spring spacer and call it good enough

Thanks for the reply bigclay thats exactly what I did 3 days ago. Added a 3/4 spacer on the pass spring, replaced track bars and now she's level. Celebratory beer was then opened

On the RHD does the front track bar start on the right side and go down?

Looking from the front the ball joint to body is on the right and the axle connection is on the left

Good to hear! Sometimes with the uni-bodies they can get tweaked, so don't worry.

When you park, trying leaving it in neutral and using ebrake. Maybe torque on the driveshaft from the transmission holding it.
