Top plate spacer w/ EIBACHS

I have about .5" rear driver side lean. The front is off but only by about .25" on driver side. I'm gonna get a top plate spacer to install on driver side, only thing is I'm not sure if I should get a 1/4" spacer or 3/8"?

I have a 2001 DCSB with Bilsteins all around, Dakar leaf springs, and eibach coils on the 5100 adjustables.

I'm hoping the spacer will perch up the front driver side and level off the front. In doing so, I'm hoping it will perch up the rear driver side a little as well, and also shift some of the lean over to the rear passenger side. The whole goal is to get the truck a little closer to level.

So with a .5" rear driver side lean and a very slight front driver side lean, which size top plate spacer should I get, 1/4" or 3/8"?

I'm hoping 1/4" will do the trick because I believe the 3/8" spacer will require longer top plate bolts.

The 1/4" spacer should yield you 1/2" lift.

Sweet, that's what I need.

I saw you have the eibachs also. Are you running a top plate spacer on driver side?

Can anyone else confirm this? I'm hoping someone that has the same set up I do with the 1/4" top plate spacer would chime in.

Are the rear springs installed on the correct side? I think they are left and right side specific if i remember reading on here that another guy had the same problem. Just something you may want to check before you spend the money on spacers that you would not need, but I do understand some people do have a driver side lean.

yeah they are on the correct side (A/B)

Im only getting the driver side 1/4' top plate spacer, which from what im hearing/ reading, is to correct the driver side lean. Hope it works though...
