5100s with one 1/2" and one 1/4" spacer to correct taco lean?

Like the title says......I have 5100s on the way and a set of 885s already. I know you cant use the toytec trim packer with 5100s but was hoping that the use of a 1/2" spacer on the driver side and 1/4" on the passenger wold achieve the same thing. I want a full 3" or as close as possible.

You can do that but will need longer top studs at least on the 1/2" spacer side

Ya but then I would need another 1/4 for the taco lean.....so I figured I could just get relentless taco to make me one of each rather than stack em. Then just grab longer studs seperate.

Anything else I need as far as hardware? new stuff I cant reuse or shouldnt? Front end only.....back end is next project.

You'll have to contact Toytec to see if they will sell the studs seperately

You can't stack top plates. You will have to ask toytec to mix and match one 1/2 and a 1/4". The 1/4" side can use factory bolts. If you have to order two different sets I am sure you could sell the other mix and match on here pretty easily.

I guess "can't" was the wrong word.

So can you just run a 1/4" one on the drivers side? I don't want to lift the truck anymore then it already is with my 5100s at .85 and Eibachs. What's my options?

Ok here are my measurements as of right now....

center of hub to fender (not with full tank......should I remeasure with a full tank guys?)

LF 20 1/4" + 1/2" spacer
RF 20 1/2" + 1/4" spacer

LR 21 5/8"
RR 22 3/8"

So I was thinking of grabbing from relentless two spacers cut at different heights. As above....am I thinking correctly? Will I need larger spacers to get close to 3"? Im an access cab with no extra weight......my springs say 885 not 885x also if that matters.

They go on the front only. A majority of Tacomas need them to make them sit level.
