lean on the driver side?

I have a prerunner 4 door that i put the advustable bilsteins on about 6 or 8 months ago. i was checking out the measurments yesterday and noticed that my front pasenger side sits up 1/4 inch higher than the driver side and the rear passenger sits up almost an inch higher than the driver side. anyone know what may be causing this?

They all do. Toytec has a 1/4" top plate spacer that goes in between top of strut & frame. Yes, the studs are already long enough. It costs about 20.00.

will this correct the rear lean also? what do you mean crank? i seen somewhere on here about a 1/4in plate to put on the driver side but that would give me 1/2 in on the driver side and make the passenger side lower wouldn't it?

I think he has 5100s, not fully adjustable coilovers. If he does then what you said, lol.

Yes, click my link. Yes, the rear pass corner should go down a bit when lifting the front drvr corner.

Basically, yes, but it is easier said than done. Follow the how-to for shock removal & hope the 5100 setup is same as stock on overall length where you can sneak the top out without much other suspension disassembly.
