Anyone not happy after installing the 1/4" lean spacer?

Im debating on getting one to fix the rear lean, but I, not sure I should. I have a perfect front hight both sides, just the rear that sags. Im worried I will see a gain in the front thus making it lean to the drivers side. Anyone?

I did not know there was one for the rear. I asked Toytec about it when I bought the front spacer, they said there was not one available.

I got that exact same story out of Toytec, I need to measure mine again to see if it made any difference in the rear, I don't think it did.

I thought the 1/4" lean spacer is used to correct the driver's side lean? AKA the trim spacer? I installed a "trim" spacer on my drivers side up front and I'm very happy with it...from what I can tell my truck sits level in the front, driver vs. passenger. I don't know how it would help the rear....

EDIT: Sorry for the confusion, I installed the 1/4" spacers on both sides up front, but also installed the 10mm trim spacer on the drivers side only to correct the drivers side lean.

ya i know. i hope its not just something fucked up in the rear because it definitely sits a good 1/2 lower on the drivers side

In all seriousness if your questioning the installation and it rides good now who really cares if it leans? I never fret the small stuff like that. I'm sure I have a bad lean. No one has ever caught it and said dam that trucks not level.

Just park in uneven surfaces and you'll be fine
