    Hello I have 2021 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 TRD Sport
    Currently running icon 2.5 coilovers non resi with 14” Eibach springs. I have OME medium duty leaf packs in the rear. Rear is sitting higher than the front. Anyone run this set up and know what to adjust the coilovers to to get a level ride height front to rear.

    My best option for you is just keep turning the collar on the shock down until you feel it is level

    But you do need a turn key for the shock collar and usually they don’t provide one cause they don’t want you to mess up your shock because you only loosen the collar a tiny tiny amount or the collar will come off then big problems

    Add weight to the bed until it’s level, and it will also ride like a Cadillac. Don’t preload the front coils too much or it will ride like a dump truck.

    Trying to figure out what the max preload for this set up would be so I don’t go over it.

    1" rake is perfect. If you put anything in the rear it will level it out naturally.

    If you lift the front using the coil adjustments, you'll make it higher, causing worse angles and need a new alignment.

    Shows us a pic. Most on here support 1" rake vs dead level.

    The only reason the driver side is a little higher is cause of the taco lean it’s caused by the gas tank and the driver seat being on the driver side and it actually makes the truck lean left

    Yes that is true lowering the shock collar farther would make angles a little more steep

    Does it look fine how it is right now? As far as the preload?
