Taco lean.....

mine is....indeed leaning towards the driver's side....it showed up two days after my 5100 install.....my question is.....because i took it to get aligned 30 minutes after i installed the billie's "NO Lean" has my alignment now been affected after the "lean" arrised? By the way the lean dont bother me at all....unless of course the alignment went out....just real particular about shit that's all thanks

it sounds like it just settled a little bit after having a load finally put onto the shocks, if they are adjustable you can just adjust them to being even, i wouldnt think it would affect your alignment very much, minimal at best, most of the alignment is from the UCA unless im wrong but i had a lean on the driver side and all i did was just adjust the coilover up higher, hope this helps

I measured mine before I installed the 5100s and my passenger side was 1" higher than the driver's side. I installed the 5100s and put a 1/4" spacer on the driver's side and now there is only 1/4" difference, but isn't noticeable with the naked eye.

I was so aggravated at my lean. I got the 1/4 spacer for the front and it solved that, but the rear still sagged on one side thus sending the passenger side up. So I had bro lean on the drivers side and a slight rake on the passenger side.

I ended up spending 8 dollars and added two sand bags to my passenger side. Put them in two trash bags and bungee corded them to the side of the bed. It's all under the cover and even with the cover up it's hardly noticeable. Truck sits perfectly level in the front and rear now.

Now I've essiently got the weight of two gas tanks in the rear. I'm level though, so I don't care.
