Most always the pass side is the heaviest you didn't say which chassis. My Fords had to add leaf springs to level coach.Once that was done had better control of coach.
If its not level 2" both front and back should be leveled. Leaf springs can be placed all four corners to level coach and not just shift weight to other side or twist frame by blocking up on one axel location.

A good spring company can level the coach as to the weight of coach at all four corners.
Look up Donovan Springs in Derry ,NH. Thats who corrected my Ford.
My job cost about $1100 with a alinement.

My rig leaned about two inches to the right also. Dealer measured and said all was "within tolerances". Took it to Workhorse Service Center, who said right front spring was sagging. They replaced the spring, no help.

I had Henderson's Lineup in Grants Pass, OR, fix it. They shimmed it and leveled it all around.

I also had Henderson's install front and rear anti-sway bars, and a rear Trac-Bar. (Workhorse had previously installed a Davis TruTrac bar on the front). Also, new Bilstein shocks.

Now, it handles like it should have from day one!

how big was your shim? mine is two inches block.

Was the factory sway bays not good enough?

I told bago that 2 inch shim is too much and they are looking into it... i believe the rv needs new springs with leafs added to handle the weight then i'm going to add the henderson rear trac bar...
