    then you have the leaf spring on backwards, they are directional.

    everybody i ever knew that dropped their truck, including myself, did this, if you measure each end of the leaf spring to the nipple in the middle, you will see that they are different. You want the shorter distance up front

    there is no sliding involved. Each end of the leaf spring has has a circular hole that a bolt goes thru, once bolted in they are stationary, they dont move...if they do, wear your seatbelt when driving!!! you have to unbolt the U bolts undo the shock, support the rear, unbolt the leafs, flip them around and re-install

    Dude Seems to me you have weight ware problem depend on what side of the truck is leaning and were most of the weight is being destrubutted if alot of passangers postion more weight to one side of the truck. the side with the weaker set up will often sway, but dude dont stack any blocks youll get sobody killed, and we got to keep rollin.
    The best way to fix the problem is when you lower use everything new a replace everything you can old from shocks to springs to have the best ride without the passanger shift.....LayLow

    It's not your front suspension, or a miss-installed leaf, or anything like that. It's gotta be a GM fuck up. My blazer has the same 'problem'. Closest thing I've seen to making sence is what Lay Low said, uneven wear. I noticed when I installed 3" blocks that one side was slightly higher (like 3/8"). I figured my torsion bars were just needed adjustment, but nothing ever worked.
    Now I have the rear sitting on bumpstops (one stock leaf) and one side STILL sitts higher. I can slam the front down to the ground, and it makes no difference in the rear, always a little off. I'm the only one that notices it of course, but it pisses me off.
    You should start by measuring from the tire forward to the body, and from the rear of the tire to the body. See if those gaps are the same distance on the left and right sides. That will tell you if you axle is seated on the blocks correctly.

    i used to have the same problem but after i lower it it dissapear
    maybe is a GM phuck up i dunno, bag it it's probably the best solution since u gotta remove the leafs to use the 4 link
    can u swap leafs? try that and see if it happens on the other side
