OME 3"..doesn't sit as level as I thought

So this is something cosmetic and nitpicky..but after getting my OME lift and new wheels and tires on, I gotta say I'm a tiny bit disappointed. I was really hoping the front and rear would be closer to level than it is. It sits higher but the front is still visibly lower than the rear, much like stock..I don't guess there's anything I could do to level it out any from here is there..? Thanks y'all.

I know that's an option but I like the amount of lift in the rear, I just wish the front sat level..

To clarify, I've got the OME top plate spacers on. Are y'all talking about those or somehow adding other spacers?

Take out one of the add a leafs. Those Dakars make the rear sit way to high, at least I am assuming you installed the Dakar leaf pack. If you did not the OME lift normally lifts the front pretty good.

I don't have the Dakar, just the ToyTec AAL.

Got it..yeah it's the 2". To answer the other question about the coils, I got the 885s. Something that I wondered about is the fact that in the front I had to cut some away from the actual fender on the inside, not just the black plastic wheel well liner. I never measured before so I don't know exactly the difference in how it sits but I was worried for a while that somehow I still wasn't getting a full 3" in front..hell I don't know.

i went with the 884's and 1.5" AAL without the TSB, and my ride is level. ironic, i actually wanted the front a tad lower. i like a bit of rake.

Mine was the same just let the aal settle it took like 2 weeks. Like if you take a look at my build there's 2 pics the same day I put on the lift and then like 2-3 weeks after I took more pics and o looks so much better

Let the leaf pack settle for a few weeks before you do anything. Take it offroad, put some stuff in the bed, flex it a little on a curb or something.

I was hoping it'd level out a little as the leaf springs settle, but the lift has actually been on for going on 2 months..and the rear suspension got flexed pretty hard the other day when I ran off into a hole and got stuck there..lol I don't know, I guess I'll just be leaving it the way it is.
