    Hey guys,

    I just put a 2.5 inch daystar leveling kit on my 2009 taco. Is it level with this mod or do i need to add anything to the rear to level it out. Maybe my eyes are tricking me but it appears my front now slightly higher than the back? just wondering new to lifting trucks.

    thanks

    Is it safe to rotate the strut like that needs to be installed?

    I would think if you havent already got the TSB yet, and you qualify for it, that would solve your problem. Another option would be to get a AAL in the back to give you some rake back similiar to factory. I have billies in the front set at 2.5" with a 2" AAL in the back & it sits nice.

    What are you talking about? The shock is not rotated. The top plate is. And there sre no struts on a Tacoma... we have shocks.

    Looks really good, I went with the 2" AAL because it settles over time, moreso if you tow or haul often.
