My 88 D100 leans to the left. It is very common I'm hearing. Chrysler even offered a coil spring spacer to fix the problem. It is a round cupped piece of rubber. It must go on top or below the spring. Has anyone used this and if so, did it work?

Really? I got a chuckle out of that.

I have a friend, he's a bigger guy, who was driving another friends 69 Barracuda. That car was leaning at least 20° to port. He gets out and the car goes to level. Funniest thing I had seen in a while.

How is the front end alignment and has the spring been checked?
I have never seen one lean that far.
Had an employer back in the 70's with air levelers on an LTD they work rather well considering his close to 500 lb load.

Something I just thought about . If it's just one corner , you might want to check your front body mounts under your radiator support .
