Leveling Truck Ideas - Thu, 05/23/13 8:25 PM

Howdy everyone-
 
Quick question-my original idea to have the weight in the truck more evenly distributed kinda fell through with having to move a cooler to the line side.  Anyway now the level and weight of the truck is way off.  What are my options for getting things level?  I know the obvious would be to simply add weight to the passenger (lighter) side but I would rather not add a bunch of extra weight unless I absolutely have to.
 
Also I'm at the point where pinching pennies is a priority so adding air bags probably isn't in the cards...
 
Any ideas or suggestions?
 
Thanks in advance!!!

Air bags would do it.  Hook them up on separate air lines so you can independently adjust them.

cheap would be move your water and waste tanks to the other side.water weighs 8 lb per gal.
heavier shocks on that side could do it.
heavier springs also.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I already have my water and waste on that side and that is certainly going to help but you guys are right-a little suspension mod is probably the way to go.  The airbags seem cheap enough and I'm sure I can find some better shocks and springs so we'll see what I can muster up.  Thanks again!!
