I have seen a couple trucks come from the factory with a goofy lean to one side or the other like yours has, it is not very noticeable at stock height but once you lift the truck it is very noticeable, there have been a few other members here that have had similar issues when lifting there truck (not just RCX specific either), I do not remember what they did to get it fixed I will search the boards for a bit with the search feature and see if I can fine them.

Thanks
Jeremiah

If what Jeremiah is saying is true with your truck, maybe you could set the driver bilstein to 1.4 or 2.1 to compensate. Not sure if you could actually do that without screwing up your front end geometry. But then again it's messed up already?...maybe worth a shot

Our trucks have a 'dodge lean'
Typically it's the rear that lean to the left rather than the entire truck.
This is due to the gas tank and amount of fuel in it.

The way to correct this is to throw a different coil spacer on that side. Either 1/2" if you're running nothing...or 1/2" more than what you have on the passenger side.
I have a 1.5" on my rear drivers and 1" on my passenger rear.
Lean is now gone.

I had a 1/2"
Some have a 3/4" lean. So measure first before grabbing the rear coil spacer

Hey guys new to the forum, I just installed a 6 inch rcx. On my 08 I'm having the same problem I'm getting 1 1/2 inch difference between drivers and passengers I figured it could have a lot to do with the front end but I installed quick struts less than a year ago. Thinking of trying the bilstein ride height adjustable's and new coils and seeing how those work.

i think the pulling is the tires. i have an 06 ram with 6" rcx and with stock wheels and tires it was fine. after the new wheels and tires it started pulling to the right. the shop i go to that lifts trucks all the time says the bigger tires grip the road better and because of road crown it goes to the right. drive on the left side of the road ( when no one is around obviously ) and it should pull to the left. thats what mine does

Different truck all together, but when I initially put an Australian Old Man Emu lift in my other 4x4, it did what yours is doing.

Turned out the Aussies have the coils flipped around to account for a different weight distribution than the North American version of the same 4x4. Once I flipped the coils left to right, everything sat great.
