    3" lift on Toyo Tires
    So I recently installed a OME Front suspension/rear leaf pack for 3" lift on my 01 Tacoma. I noticed a big lean going on the driver's side on flat surface.

    Is there a key to fixing this?
    (Rear OME 2.5 leaf packs are in the correct order)

    I know the rear has one side that's stiffer then the other. Does it state what one goes on what side

    Mine were both the same size. I ordered the shim to be installed on the struts by Wheelers and it wasn't enough. I had to install a spacer like the one in the second response.

    No, mine was from Wheelers.
    I think this was it. Measure how much thread you have showing to see if you need longer upper studs on the top plate. You'll have to disassemble the struts if you do.

    On the drivers side coilover, you’ll see a 5mm shim that they refer to as the “trim packer” which will be between the coil bucket and the lip on the strut.
