2013 f250 sits uneven by 1.2"!

Hello all, I have a new 2013 f 250 gaser the truck I noticed sits crooked it is lower on drivers side by almost 2 inches and not from the fuel tank. Any ideas as this is bothering me it looks cheap for a 50K truck!

Thanks!

Take it back to the dealer, they have specifications they're supposed to adhere to, this doesn't sound like it'd be within that spec.

My truck is 1/2" higher on the passenger side than the drivers side front and rear. Had an 08 F350 that the Pas. side was 1" higher than the DS. and the rear was the same on both sides. See what the dealer will do, they did nothing for me on the 08 and my 13 was close enough for me, I measured before I signed.

I think its just that not all springs have the exact same tention plus the body and frame could be slightly off. I would bet you could check any brand of cars and trucks and find some differences.
The only people that really notice are those that go through the trouble to set up there hitch's correctly and actually measure the fenders to see if its set up right.
I did not have any handling issues or tire wear when mine were off.
I have read in the past that some people got the dealer to switch springs from side to side to fix but don't remember the outcome.

So I would think if I went to dealer it would be a waist my time because I'm sure they new at factory its not perfect and would say its in the tolerance? I cant believe they let $50,000 trucks go out the door this way!

Even if it's a waste of time, at least you have documented the complaint.

Mabe, but I'll tell you this look at your trucks closely the fit and finish on these 50 k trucks are a joke! That's what you get when union spoiled workers make a us product you get junk!

You are new to FTE so for now I will give you a pass for now but I would like to see photos of your truck so we can see what you think the problem is, myself I don't believe what you are saying so I would like to see evidence. 2 photos with a tape measure showing the difference in the two sides would be nice.

Did you buy the truck without looking at it? Saying the general fit and finish is a joke is a pretty generalized statement. What other complaints do you have about it?

What'd the dealer say, it was within spec? What's the spec? If it's not, call Ford customer service. You gotta put a little effort into it. I've run into similar "push back" by service advisors, but yours seems self explanatory. If it's within spec, so be it, if it's not, it should be fixed...
