      Do a search and you'll find probably 15 threads regarding this. It is very common on the '95 and up Explorers. My own personal experiences have shown (at least to me) the amount of gas in my tank has no affect on the tilt.

      My brother just replaced his leaf springs on the drivers side because of the sag. He said it was because of the gas tank and overtime it causes a sag on the left side. That's just what I heard and it's no big deal. He went to a Ford junk yard and got leaf springs from the right rear and put them on the left rear so the sag would be gone, now it looks just fine from behind.
