Just found out that my driver side is 1" lower front suspention 2010 TRD ! Why?

Hey guys, I was taking some measurements of the stock suspension of my 2010 TRD Sport double cab, 3 leaf springs in the back, when I realize that my driver side is sagging already. It is actually 1" shorter than the passenger side. Measuring from floor to side fender area....
This is truck has only 3000 miles and I am 220lbs. I think it is too soon for that, or are all of them like that???
If you can, measure yours and see if you also have this 1" difference.!!

Thanks
David
PS: From ground to truck, front tires,34" and 35" on driver side.

"taco lean" did you by chance have a full tank of gas when you measured?

Taco lean. Some aftermarket lifts/level kits come with 1 extra 1/4"+ spacer just to add to the drivers side to level it out.

Totally normal.

Is that why my truck seems to corner better turning left? You guys almost have me convinced to mod my suspension!

Nope I think it's his Fat Ass! my truck doesn't lean!





J/K! I actually have my C/O's adjusted so my truck sits level.
Toytec sells spacers that can correct the lean. The Toytec spacer is 1/2" and should do the trick. But you actually need a 5/8" coil spacer to lift it 1", but the 1/2" spacer will be close!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Are you on a level surface when you are measuring?

Or buy a right-hand drive Hilux. Those things have all the goodies and are balanced properly.

good luck trying to get that thing to pass emissions test...that's why they don't offer it here in the US...

also the same reason why its hard to get an R34 Skyline, Silvia, and other bad @ss cars registered and insured in the US...the government doesn't want us to drive faster cars and better built cars that will take on and blow cop cars/helicopters away...lol bastards...you gotta know the loop holes in the system and the right people to pay off to get them here...boo the man...
