I need to replace the pcv valve on my 03 Ford explorer sport trac but I'm having trouble finding it where it's at. Could you guys help me find where its at?

Also I've noticed that my truck leans to the left side about an inch lower than the right side. I'm guessing it's a fatigued leaf spring but I wanted to see what you guys thought it might be.

PCV valve is at the rear of the driver side valve cover next to the firewall. Tighten until it "clicks" in the valve cover, very easy to break tabs inside valve cover.
PCV Valve

Is your driver leaf flattened? If so, very common issue known as the "Ranger or gangster lean". Reported cause is driver side weight imbalance from the fuel tank, driver, battery, etc. Search.

Re: The PCV valve. If yours has the metal tube wrapped around it, you should first remove the two smaller coolant hoses attached to that metal tube.There will be less chance of it breaking while you remove it. it unscrews about 3/4 of a turn.
