Our trucks were built from the factory with the front being lower than the rear. Now if your front springs are shot it will enhance the tilt. Normally the front springs set at near a level stance and the factory arching is not that much to begin with. Most of the 93 models came 6 inch tall blocks in the rear suspension which is taller than the pre-92 years. It may be cheaper and easier just to swap out the rear blocks with an earlier year if you really want it to set in a more level stance.

Just remember that a slightly overloaded truck stands out more and has a far better chance of being pulled over and weighed if the load causes the rear end to sag and appear more than normal. A truck with a level stance will appear to be overloaded when ever a heavy load is placed in the bed due to the fact that it normally sets level. I know two retired state police officers who have personally confirmed this as a fact.

The only way I could get my truck to ride nice and level was to fill the bed with fresh cut red oak.

That wasn't very practical for me so I bought some 2" skyjacker springs ($380) which leveled it out nicely. I haven't loaded her heavy since, so I don't know how it will look.
