I have a similar problem with my '50 3100.  After I got all the sheet
metal off, I realized that a previous owner had welded in their own
front upper shock mount.  It must be off slightly, causing the truck to
lean to one side.  I haven't done anything with it yet because I haven't
decided on what IFS solution to go with.  I'm hoping whatever I choose
will fix the problem, and I'm leaning (pun intended) towards the Pacer
IFS swap as detailed by Jack Halton.  Since I haven't done it yet, I
don't know if the original shock mount is used in the Pacer swap.  If it
is, I guess I will have to try to fix it before bolting on the Pacer
stuff.  Anyone know for sure?
