Hey guys, i was looking at my grizz earlier tyoday and noticed in is leaning a bit to the left on the rear. I have checked the tire pressure and everything looks good, and couldn't see anything else obvious that would cause this. When looking from the front everything looks level. Anyone know what would cause this? Or what to check next?

Thanks

Are the springs evenly adjusted?
Is the one spring broke?
Any loose or missing bolts anywhere?
Cracks in the frame or A-Arms?

A bent or broken frame will cause it.
If you lift the rear end off the ground, do both wheels extend to the same point? You could measure from the top of the shock to the to the tip of the A-arm. If they do, then slowly lower it back down so the wheels do not move much and the Grizz wants to sit very near topped out on both shocks. If it's still un-level, you probably have a spring issue or a frame issue. You can also raise and lower the and or front rear end and watch to see if one tire comes down before the other. Obviously, you need to do all this on flat, level ground. Try trading right/left shocks to rule out springs.

It's an 08' 700. I glanced over everything last night and couldn't find anything suspicious. I'll be gigging a little deeper today.

You might want to check the a-arm bushings and the sway bar bushings and linkage.

My friend had the same problem. He brought it to my house so I could help him find the problem. He had it in the back of his truck and when he pulled in the driveway I spotted the problem right away. Just to mess with him I let him unload it and started to look at it like I didn't know what was wrong. Well after about half an hour I told him that I knew what was wrong as soon as he pulled into the drive way. He was surprised and said on way, I said way. I walked to the left rear fender and pulled the Obama campaign sticker off and it straightened right up, no more leaning to the left. :tongueout2:
