Taco Lean or other?

I've gone through and read a bunch of threads on the lean, but even with the searching didn't satisfy my question.

I just got a frame replacement, put 5100's all the way around and a skyjacker soft ride AAL and ome 880's (with billy's at the middle).

I didn't notice the lean much before, or even right after the frame swap. But now, a couple weeks after frame swap, my rear end leans 3/4" to drivers and my front leans 1" to the drivers side.

Ground to bottom of fender through center of wheel:

38" drivers rear
38 3/4" Passenger rear
37 1/4" Driver front
38 1/4" Passenger front

Think is normal and just deal with it? Or as I've read with some frame swaps, is it an issue with the frame replacement having the rear shock mounts welded improperly from dana? When the taco's lean, do they lean both front and rear? Sorry for all the questions, any help is appreciated.

It was on level ground, was a full tank of gas, tire pressure the same, nothing in the truck, I checked to make sure the side specific 5100's were on the proper side in the rear..etc...

Cheers, BTW Toyota in Sudbury did a sweet job on the frame swap...she's tight like a tiger.

My truck leans 1" exactly on the driver side... I am furiated with it, however I'm in a different league than you, SAS ftw. But I shouldn't be leaning. No one should.. but almost everyone does

I'm leaning 3/4" front and back even WITH a toytec 1/4" spacer up front and driver/passenger specific leafs from OME (dakar). I've learned to deal.

I put a top plate spacer on my driver's side which fixed my taco lean. But with a full tank of gas and me in the cab, it still leans a bit

Yeah, I'm not all that worried,just making sure the numbers are what other people have seen, I'll deal with the character for now. Thanks for the responses. I was suprised as the suspension is all brand new and is leaning. She might really lean after a while. Maybe a spacer then. When i had my 98, people talked about the lean, I never had it and wondered about it. Until then I'll load stuff on the passenger side...lol.

I have a similar situation as you. Measured the same way before and after my 2in lift and I am 5/8in lower on my driver side. Truck was empty in cab and bed, fuel at 1/4 tank, and tires were all even. Don't know what the problem is but it would be nice to know what is going on. (05 Taco, 4x4, offroad pkg, TRD)
