That's the "Taco Lean." When Toyota designed the Tacoma, they added all heavy items on the drivers side which resulted in the left side to lean.

right on... I looked under the truck last night and noticed the left bottm leaf spring was almost straight and the right bottom leaf spring was a little curved... Is that ok..?? Will that hurt the Leaf spring in the long run..??

I had the lean and had to adjust my coilover 3/4" higher on the driver side to level it out.

I donno if this would be a good idea but does anyone know if i were to switch the 1.5" block with a 2" block on the left side to fix the "taco Lean" and leave the 1.5" block on the right side... Would that be a good idea or no...???

Why don't you adjust your front driverside coilover?
