Taco Lean? Not Leveled?

Well I want to fix two things! first i want to fix the taco lean, but i want to know if i can put the front top plate spacer on my 3" Revtech Spacer? Or is that too much?




Next question I feel as if my front of the truck is higher than the back, can i replace my Rear Block (1.5") with the Toytec 2" AAL to give me the proper leveling of the truck(Didnt Qualify for the TSB AAL)?

Did you have to compress the coils to put it in?
How thick is the toytec top plate spacer?

then yeah, u should get a lil bit out of the rear. depending on use though, the AAL may flatten and produce less lift over time. wont be anywhere quick though

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The Toytec 5mm spacer "can" be used on the Revtec lift.

I am not sure how his RevTek kit came, but mine included two 1/4" top plate spacers. Unless some extra large studs were used in order to stack a 1/2" worth of spacers on top(not sure how safe that would be), his only other option will be to take the passenger side spacer off, leaving the drivers side on.
