    Hey guys new to the site. The question I have is about my left front sagging. It seems to me that it's been getting worse over time. I installed a 3" Toytec lift approximately 2 year ago. The truck sits about an 1"-1.5" lower on driver side with no one in it, so it's pretty noticable. I weigh about 215, is it just that I'm too fat for the truck or is it time for new springs or shocks up front? I put the bigger shocks in rear with the add a leafs, and the left rear is a little lower than the right. I've got about 117,000 miles. I'm hoping to fix this problem before new tires. Thanks for any feedback.

    Probably have a coil that has just gotten weak over time. I would call the toytec people and ask them about it..

    Is it a Toytec spacer or Toytec Adjustable coilover lift??

    The Gas tank, battery, and driver are all on the left side of the truck...so the taco does have a pronounced lean to that side....Over time it can get worse as springs settle. A spacer lift might accelerate that a bit...

    Yeah...Talk to Toytec- but some new springs might fix that up or at least get them closer.

    Welcome to TW!

    Is this a spacer lift? If so and the shocks/ springs are OEM with 117K on 'em they likely need to be replaced.
