2006 is too high in the front
My 2006, which hasn't done a lot of work in it's life, always seems to sit nose high. This is compounded when I hook on our 6000lb travel trailer.
Although I didn't check the truck at level, I know the front is a bit higher than the back. When I add the trailer, it is 2" higher in the front than the back. It looks like the back is squatting a lot more than it should, but the front is and has always been high.
Note that the truck is using weight distribution.
I could just adjust down the t-bars on the front, but I want some feedback from others. Is lowering the front a good idea? Or should I be looking at adding air bags to the back? I'm not a fan of lifted trucks, as it just makes them a pain to use. I'd prefer the truck be level when towing, and can be raked down when not.
This truck only has 220,000km, and really only tows this trailer. I don't often drive it empty. My dad has owned it since 2008, and it has never been modified outside of those aftermarket wheels and new tires.
