|So about a year ago my brother dumped my truck into a ditch. This is what it looked like:
Well, the other day I noticed that the rear end seems a tad off...maybe an inch or so. I took a strap and dangled it off the side which is by no means a technical way to measure, but it's essentially a plumb bob. The first picture is the driver side (side that was down in the ditch) and the second is passenger side. I've looked at the shock mounts and shackle mounts, as well as the leaf springs themselves and nothing is bent or cracked. Also the frame looks straight to my eyeballs. Is this normal? Lol.
Edit: it also drives straight with no wobble or weird rear end movements, unloaded and loaded.

knowing when to quit is wisdom, being able to quit is courage.
