My is the same!
I put 235lb's in left and 210lbs in right to help.
If you push down in the middle in front and release the left sags by about 1/2".
I gave up on tring to get level.

I no longer own the sled but mine had me going crazzy. What I found by pulling the primary clutch off the two aluminim parts that should have been tight it seemed to be opening up. Dont know the cause but was the only thing that was not right that I could find. just my two cents

I have seen this on almost every sled ive owned in the past. Set your sled on a solid surface and lift the front off the ground. Set it back slowly as if your tring to get the most clearance for the front. Grab the bumper from the front with both hands and lift the suspension up and down just a couple inches. you will be able to tell you have a weak shock by one side shrugging more then the other. this will cause the front to dive and poor handling. If you are having problems with this on just the Walker Evans floats i say trash them and get some Ride FX shocks or upgrade to the coilover WE. Everyone that i know that has a dragon has problems with there WE's shocks. I have had Fox Floats on my iqr and have this problem when air leaks out of the chambers but its an easy fix with there air pump tool.
