Just so happens that I just solved this problem on my vehicle as well. I have the manual in front of me. Is your vehicle 4x2 or 4x4 or AWD and does it have stock wheels and tires?

Ride Height for front if you do not have automatic ride control: 3.58 to 4.37 inches. The attachment states 4x2 on the procedure- but it is the same for 4x4 and AWD. Also check the ride height of your rear spring perches- left and right. You may have a weak or broken leaf spring. If your vehicle has been hit in the rear and the frame is twisted- this can cause a lean as well. Go to index I pasted this to my web page. I could not get the upload manager to work right at this sight.
