Taco lean

Correct me if I'm wrong: You only need the to 1/4" spacer if 1) your stock drivers side spring is sagging or 2) you're not using stock springs, right? The stock drivers side spring is a little longer or stiffer than the passenger side spring isn't it?

i put 5100's in all around, and had the TSB done. Also set the fronts at .85 to level it off (have a topper).
Still had some of a lean and wanted to get rid of it.
Put the spacer on it, and no more lean, no more issues. Its worth it, and gets rid of the lean (more or less).

correct....the 1/4 top plate will eliminate the taco lean...I'm running one. You can get one from Toytec for 20-25 bucks

OK, good to know. I thought I remembered reading that the stock front springs were side specific to compensate for the lean, but it sounds like that's not the case. Thanks guys.
