uneven front with 5100's??

i just got the bilstein 5100's put on my front end today and i had them supposedly set at 1.75" but the front driver side is about a quarter of an inch lower maybe more than the front passenger side...is it supposed tgo be like this??

And it wasn't raised by 1.75" either idt, so do they stretch out more over time?

I believe you have to make the one side about a half inch higher.

Yeah its the infamous "taco lean" that most people have. My driver side sits about 1/4" lower then my passenger side as well. Doesn't bother me at all though so I haven't messed with it.

well i'm not planning on spending any more money at the moment so i'm not going to get the extra spacer, but i was just more worried if anyone else had this problem or just me, thanks for the reassurance guys

You have a first gen tacoma...

Did you make sure the coils were put back on the same exact side they came off?

The stock tacoma coils are SIDE SPECIFIC on the first gen trucks.

Before buying any spacers & stuff...I'd highly recommend swapping the coil assemblies from side to side and see if that corrects the lean.

Good Luck!
