    3" lift, Nitto grapplers on dicks, remote start. Amsoil synthetics and K&N filters... im a simple man really =)
    Hey guys! New to the Tacoma world! Recently got a killer deal on an 07 TRD Off-road Taco (never offroaded... low milage) But shes got a ride height issue... The front driver side measures out to 38 1/2" from the ground to the fender (center of wheel) rear driver side measures 38 1/4".

    The front passenger side however measures 39 1/4" from the ground.
    The rear passenger side measure 39"...

    I know i should be at 39" up front on both sides and 38" or so in the rear? Correct?

    The mods on the truck came as follows
    -3" spacer lift (garbage...)
    - 1" Add-a-leif on rears (No-tsb)
    -Stock billistiens.. (not sure how to adjust them, any advice on how to would be awesome!)
    - 285 Nitto terra graplers all around.

    Any ideas on why my rides so javked up or what to do about it? i dont have the cash right now to drop on coilovers so.... unfortunatly thats not an option... sigh... i would like to get the rear up a bit higher over the front though.. Block??

    Thanks a million guys!!!

    No way to adjust the stock billy's.

    Most Tacomas does have a lean to the drivers side. One way many have fixed it is a 1/4" top plate spacer on the driver side. Sounds like you are leaning a bit more than that though.

    You could buy a 2" AAL for the back to raise it up a bit.
