So whats the verdict? If I lift to 1.75" or so, will that correct the taco lean? Or should I still opt for the spacer for the driver side?
I literally just had this scenario over the weekend, I went to a 4WP shop and had 5100s and an add a leaf put in. I bought the spacer from ToyTec and took it in to be installed with the billys even though I measured out the passenger side to be the same as the driver side before I made the purchase. I figured with adjustable shocks the lean would eventually happen(truck had 40000 on it and no lean yet) so I wanted it put in as a 'preventative'
4WP would not install the spacer since both sides were spec, so maybe I have avoided the Taco Lean altogether
I also somehow avoided any shudder at low MPH without shims or a carrier drop using the Toytec 2" AAL (non TSB) -whatever that means, whacky how much that varies truck to truck
( I went 1.85 on the front billys)
