2012 double cab long box driver side lean

I am new to the forum and I have a 2012 Double Cab, long box. I recently put a 2.5 inch level kit on the front end and now I have a height difference between my driver side and passenger side rear. My front end measures 37" from ground to top of wheelwell and my rear end measures 37" on passenger side, 36" on drivers side. Anyone else see or heard of this before?

yes...commonly refereed to as "Taco Lean"

This should fix it...

Taco lean...due to the gas tank being on one side and something else I can't remember
A small spacer will do the trick.

thanks for the info on this. The crazy thing is that it only leans in the driverside rear. I think I have to see if the spring or shock has an issue. I'm also thinking of adding a 1.5" 3 spring progressive leaf pack in the rear.

You have the tank, battery and driver all on the same side. The lean is common and the fix is simple.
