    Looking from behind my truck.. it's very easy to tell that the driver's side of my truck is lower than the other side. Is this a shock problem or a leaf spring problem? Can someone tell me why its like that or what happened?.. I'm hoping i just need new shocks

    search taco lean and you will find some good stuff about it :thumbsup:

    but i think a 1/4 spacer on driver side will correct it? someone else can chime in
