My truck leans toward the drivers side

The drivers side of my new tacoma 4x4 V6 DC TRD Sport is lower than the passenger side. At the front tires it is 1/2 inch lower. At the rear tires it is 1 inch lower. It doesn't sound like much but it is noticeable and it irritates me. Is this normal??

Thanks!

Its common. Adjusting your diet usually helps

It leans that way because the battery, driver and gas tank are all located on that side.

If I were a sumo wrestler I would have gotten the Tundra. I don't even want to know how much it leans when I am actually in the truck.

Don't worry about it. My F350 did it as well, with 2 batteries, one on each side, and fuel tank almost centered, and my fat ass! My new taco doesn't do it yet? But it did bother me when I had my ford.

That they sizzle medium rare and chicks love to "strip loin" to the cloth. And that AAA Angus beef comes from Canada and George W Bush has mad cow disease.

Does'nt sound normal, with a truck as new as that it should be level. I am not trying to be rude, but how many lbs are you ? If it's not you, then I would have the frame, suspension, and tires/rims checked. Take nothing for granted, believe no one until they show you the problem.

Trust me, it's normal. I'm on 5 or 6 other Toyota sites and almost everyone has the same "problem". It's a built-in factory lean.
