I think mine appears lower on the left side too. I have noticed this too. It may explain why I get more rubbing on my left turns only. Anyways, mine appears to be this as well.

Enjoying the ride of my life!

Not sure if you can tell in this pic or not but I definitely appear to have some lean going on slightly.

Enjoying the ride of my life!

Just got mine a little more than a month ago, 2400 miles on it and has the lean also. Going to add this to the items to bring up at the dealership when I take it in for the first service.

Put on your seat belt I'm going to try something.

Yeah, mine too. I thought they 'coulda swapped and had tank on opposite of driver. Two relatively equivalent expected cargo itmes. Should sit flat on E, but still got the gansta lean. Silly spare sits offset too.

Question Slight Lean

Last weekend after parking my 16 CC SLT in the garage I noticed that it 'appeared' to be a bit lower (leaning) on the driver side when looking at it from the rear. I thought that maybe it was just me (just got home from work; tired), uneven garage, ueneven driveway, etc., but I decided to measure the wheel gap on each side in the rear. What I discovered was the driver side was around 66.50" and the passenger side was 67"; I did have almost a full tank of gas.

Has anyone else noticed a slight lean? The dealer said everything was within specs and that it's probably due to having a full tank and the tank being located on the driver side. The bed was aligned correctly as well so no issues there.

thats typical chevy lean. As you tend to use the vehicle in its later years, you'll see the lean increase mainly due to the extended applied weight to the drivers side.

And no I'm not calling you fat so don't take any offense, but unless EVERY trip you take has an equally weighted passenger, the lean will continue to develop.

The gas tank is also on the drivers side too so that doesn't help

@Blue15ColoradoLT, since you already answered do you want to keep this thread. I loaded it with intent to move/merge.

Want to just keep it here and let it run its course?

unfortunately some of my moderator abilites get limited during the day when I'm at work so I don't always have search times to see about other threads.

I discovered my Colorado leaning the other day to the passenger side. Then I realized my wife was still sitting in the truck. I hope she doesn't read this!

I noticed the same lean on my Colorado Z71 for the first time today (1 inch low on the drivers side) The truck only has a little over 400 miles on it and two weeks of use. It has about 10 miles on a full tank of fuel. I am going to watch it as the fuel load goes down. I hope that is what is causing it as I did not see it before today. Never had a vehicle do that before.. Thanks for the hints.

Is my truck "tilted?"

Got a new 2016 Colorado Z71 with dealer installed 3" Pro Comp lift/level yesterday (pics coming in next couple days when I get my new BFG Ko2s on).

Drove at night for the first time this evening and noticed that the headlight "horizontal line" appeared to slant towards driver. In other words, beam was projecting higher on passenger side than driver.

I thought just for curiosity, to take some body/ground clearance measurements on various "matching" points on driver vs passenger. side Sure enough, in front of truck the passenger side measured 1/2 higher from ground to body than driver - same with rear points.

Is this even an issue? Just coincidental? Could the lift install caused it? Or is it typical? (measured wife's Subaru likewise and it was much closer - also, no unevenness with headlight projection)

Maybe the shop misaligned your headlights. Lower the passenger light or raise the driver side light adjustment.


You and the rest all have a lean to the left. The body is not the best place to measure as the body panel can be installed differently from side to side. 1/2" is noticeable however.

Maybe take it back to the installer and have them double check their work since it's leaning to the side. It will only get worse as the lift kit springs settle in, and as the vehicle ages and the driver side spring sags at a higher rate than the passenger side (common to every vehicle).
