Leaning Tacoma

I have seached several forums for solutions to the taco lean and it seems to me that most involve a spacer on the front coil, or adjustable coilovers. My issue is on the driver side rear. I pulled my truck in my garage and measured from the floor to the bottom of all four fenders all were approx 39" except driver rear was 38". Any advice would be appreciated.

Your rear leaf spring may be de-arching causing you to have one side lower than the other.

Are you sure the apparent left-rear discrepancy isn't just the bed itself (e.g., warped; mounting is a bit 'off'), rather than the actual way the suspension 'sits'?

Since the fuel tank is on the drivers side and there is usually just the driver, for the most part, that spring is relaxing compared to the opposite spring because of the weight over the years. I have this lean on my 95.5 and 97. I fixed the problem on the 97 without any $$ by swapping the springs. Yet to do this on the 95.5. It has labor to it, but is the cheapest fix.

After further examination I have decided it's not as bad as I thought so i'm going to leave it be.

my driver rear is about 1/4" lower, not that bad. But I was wondering, what size tires do you have?
