Unhappy I think I'm seeing things

I swear my passenger side is lower than my driver's side. I can't capture it in a picture but every time I look at the truck, something just seems off about it. This is whether I have a full tank or 1/4 tank so I don't believe that's involved. Am I going crazy or have any of y'all seen something like this before?

Odd. Try tilting your head the opposite direction a little then all is well. Lol. Seriously though never seen that before.

Put a level across the bed. If it noticeably off, then the level will confirm it. Or put a straight edge across the bed and measure from the ground up to it. Good luck.

The original stock front springs had different part numbers leading me to believe one side must be heavier. Replaced them with trimmed 4.7 springs which had the same P/N as the original 5.7 driver side. Don't really know...

Thanks for the tips. I'm gonna try the straight edge since I don't have a level. It may just be an uneven ground surface but it's every where not just one place that it looks ever so slightly cockeyed. I thought maybe it was the tire pressure but all 4 are at ~35psi.

Turned front wheels can lift one side or the other a little.

Full tank of fuel? Not sure which side of the truck the fuel tank is on, but 32gals is a substantial amount of weight.
