When I jacked up the rear end with a floor jack I noticed the driver side wheel hangs a few inches lower than the passenger side. I really have no experience with rear independent suspension so I'm wondering if this is normal, no big deal or what.

Oddly, I took a level to the truck when on the ground and it leans to the driver side (lower on driver side) just a bit, hardly noticable by the eye but the level showed it. I placed the level on every flat surface I could find on the truck and it read the same. My floor is level by the way. Not sure what to make of all that, seems to drive just fine though.

Sometimes the suspension is a bit higher on the driver's side of cars since most of the time only the driver is in the car. With the weight of the driver it should be level

I dunno if it makes a difference, but what side is the gas tank on ? When full, the extra weight of fuel may be the reason.
