    I just had my toytec ultimate kit installed and through this I found the infamous taco lean on the drivers side. Is it better to ....

    1. Leave the lean alone
    2. Adjust the coilver to compensate for the / .5in sag
    3. Put a spacer ontop ( toyec 1/4" spacer )

    ^ thanks ! wasn't sure what was the best option. I'm guessing i'd need another alignment or would that 1/4" adjustment be within spec

    It should be fine, but I would throw it on a rack just to make sure.

    ^ so adjust the co 1/4" for every 1/2" you want to drop right ? I never thought that 1/2" would be so visible with a lift -from the back it looks like its getting a flat tire almost

    Being as the propper tire pressure varies from tire to tire, vehicle to vehicle, theb est way to determin propper pressure for the tires is by useing the chaulk method.
