    Looks like I can crank it up 2-3 more coils to be safe? And it looks like both sides aren't even even.

    A couple more turns would be fine. Make sure you are taking them out to do the adjustment or you risk damaging the ring.

    The lean is the famous "Tacoma Lean" you could adjust that side's coil to compensate for it.

    Met up with @KingTaco81 , had the tools to help adjust the collars. We ended up doing what @fcasos recommended, turning it to about 8 coils on passenger and 9 coils on driver side. Raised it about an 1 1/4 of an inch or so on both sides, so pretty happy. Rake is still there, but it def does not look as aggressive anymore!

    @KingTaco81 i owe you some king taco and beers bro. Thanks again!!

    Hey guys I just posted on another thread as wel. How did you adjust the locking collar? I felt like the resivoir hose fitting was in the way and I couldn't get a full turn out of it to expose the next hole. Were you able to do it with just the king collar pin tool or did you have to use any thing else?

    you should take them off to adjust or you will damage the holes in the collar.

    @KingTaco81 had fabbed up his own little tool that fits into the holes, hit it with a mallet and allow it to push forward to let the collar pin tool.

    @KingTaco81, can you share a pic of the tool you came up with? If it saves one from having to take them out to adjust and it is safe on the collar I would want something like it, I am sure a few people would like one.

    pm'd.. @socalktk so you tightened the collar down 8 threads on the passenger and 9 on the driver side from the "off the shelf" thread setting?
