If my truck leaned that much I would complain until they fix it.

Since you're still under warrantee, I'd definately take the truck to the dealer and have them look at it.

Did you change anything else to your suspension?

Did the lean get worse or better after the TSB install?

So, then we are dealing with a bunch of idiots at Toyota development, My Taco is leaning about 1/2"
Take care

That is true, but I don't think it should show up until the shocks / springs are worn out. At least that is they way it was on my 93 chevy 4wd.

Just wait till your taco has a budbuilt gas tank skid and high lift jack on the same side, then tell me how much your taco leans!

Yep, and don't forget the "battery" is contributing to that side of the truck leaning too.

Mine leans a little. I cranked my C/O's on the driver side a little bit higher than the passenger side to compensate for me sagging the suspension down... and I still lean a little. It is what it is.
