    I just installed some Deaver leaf packs and 5100's with Toytec 1" shackles and the truck is leaning in the rear to the drivers side. Anybody know why?

    It's called the taco lean. the gas tank and whatnot is on the drivers side so the trucks tend to "lean" to that side. People usually correct it with a 1/4" spacer

    Didn't lean before I replaced the leaf packs and shocks. Not noticeable anyway.

    That's because the stock springs are side specific, with the drivers side one being stiffer.

    Not the recommended suggestion from Deaver but the one that makes the most since to me. I am going with the 1/4" spacer. Will let you know how it turns out, thanks...
