Leveled my 2012 4X4 with Bilsteins 5100's.

Ok. I leveled my 2012 4 door 4X4 with bilstein 5100's set at 2.5 inch. Measurements from ground to fender 38 1/4 except the front drivers side which measures 37 3/4. I know that is only 1/2 inch difference but I can notice. How do I fix that issue. Also because of the hood scoop my truck seems to be sitting nose high. Does anyone notice that. Any help would be appreciated....

Welcome to TW from Sparks, NV
You are experiencing what is known as Taco Lean caused by the fact that stock coils are a little longer on the drivers side. Did you use your stock coils? You might have gotten them on the wrong side.

Coils are the same length on each side. The problem is that the battery and the gas tank are on the driver's side, so it sits down a little more. Get a 1/4" top spacer from Toytec. Problem solved.

Aftermarket coils are the same size.
Stock coils are longer on driver side because the battery and the gas tank are on the driver's side.
