Will lift springs start sagging?

I was walking around the truck earlier and noticed from the back that it looked to be leaning. Truck is sitting on flat concrete so I start measuring around starting by measuring from the bottom of the fender lip to center of hubcaps all the way around. At rear of truck, passenger side is 2" lower than drivers side! The front is not so bad with the passenger side being 1" lower than drivers. I've had the lift on the truck for about 5 yrs. All the springs are Superlifts. Has anyone else had a problem like this?

Yes they will sag/ settle. The better the spring /company the less sag/settle. I had a 6.5 rubicon express and the front spring sagged/settled about 2" afteracouple of years. I now have a Icon/ DR 12.5" lift 4.5" hangers and 8" springs and after 2 plus yrs no sag /settling.!!
