    This might be a stupid question... but these are EL095R leaf packs for a 05+ Tacoma, which one goes on the passenger side and which one goes on the drivers side? Also, I’ve read about some people getting a drivetrain vibration, how can I avoid this?

    The arrow is for facing forward(front), every truck is different you may not get vibes. I had to get the carrier bearing drop and 3 degree shims to fix mine.

    Arrows forward and plus sign on driverside. Plus means it is over rated, minus would be underrated and o means rated. I think.

    I had a 3 degree shim and CB drop on my HD pack, but ended up removing the shim and adding to the CB drop to get it right.

    I would put the + on the driver side. And the o on the passenger side help with any lean

    Thank you guys for the quick responses. I was thinking the same thing but just wanted to make sure. I’m coming from Deaver J66’s and those didn’t have any indication and also a little lean. So if anyone’s interested in Deaver J66s pm me lol

    All of these trucks are different, what one did to fix driveline vibes may not work on yours, so proceed cautiously. I would just install them and test it. Some people need nothing shimmed, somehow.

    I would recommend measuring your driveline angles before installation though for a refrence.
