    So, i did search a bunch and come up with nothing that would really help me so here it goes...

    A month ago i installed the lift on my 2016 TRD OR SB.

    Lift consists of:
    • Fox 2.5 remote reservoir shocks up front P/N: 880-06-418
    • Icon tubular UCA's P/N: 58450
    • Fox 2.0 remote reservoir shocks in rear P/N: 985-26-118
    • OME Dakar leaf pack P/N: CS047R
    • OME drivline space P/N: FK29
    • SOS shackle flip kit with SOS shackles
    • Cooper STT MAXX 255/85R16
    i neglected to get before measurements, but i know the truck was sitting more or less level. Current measurements from ground to fender are:
    • DF: 36.75"
    • PF: 38.5"
    • DR: 40"
    • PR: 42"
    Based on the measurements you can see that I'm leaning to the drivers side about 1.75-2". All the settings on the coilovers and shackle flip are set the same, but looking at the drivers side UCA you can see its sitting a lot lower. I have an ARE overland cap, as well as a few tools and plywood insert in the bed totaling roughly around 300ish pounds. i REALLY hope I'm asking a stupid question here so that it will be an easy fix, does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, and if i overlooked something stupid please shame me so i don't do it again!

    Never been a fan of wide tires, no real benefit to them.

    Should have posted this in the suspension section, but if it can be kept on the front page... someone will mabye have mercy. I can't help all that much. But details are really good. Did you install all of it yourself??

    Have you hit up Icon or Fox? Since this is such a common problem, I wonder if they know what usually causes it. Even Jeep owners know about that Taco Lean

    I measured the amount of threads showing, from the top of the adjustment collar to the uppermost thread is 1 3/16th inches on both sides.

    i can't imagine that the UCA's would be playing a part in anything, its all torqued to spec. haven't called fox yet, i assumed i just messed up installing the coilers and they weren't set at the same height but then went i was going to adjust them i realized they were exactly the same.

    Just spin the drivers side up higher than the passenger. Most of our trucks have the lean and are corrected by additional height adjustments on the drivers side.

    Have you driven it. Usually everyone hits a few speed bumps. Maybe try and see if it settles??? Just a dummy here :crapstorm:

    And you've had the alignment done since lift install? I'm new to the lift process as well and just did mine. Fronts are close- a 1/2 in or less in comparison and rear is almost 1 inch lower on driver's side (I believe all-pro standard leafs are not side specific is what I've heard). Do the Dakar's have specific sides for the leafs (ex rated higher on left for gas tank compensation/lean) ?

    Says in original post it was done a month ago, put on a few thousand miles since then.

    it was aligned the day after install. as far as i have read the Dakar do not have specific sides.

    I thought they had a + on one leaf pack and a - on the other. + goes on the driver side to account for taco lean.

    Check the part numbers on the coils themselves. Maybe they're 2 different spring rates

    I don't have dakars so hopefully someone else can chime in. I have heard (and seen on here) they should come with side specific packs, specifically to solve this problem.

    the "+" "-" and "0" just refer to a pack being slightly over, under, or right at spec. i guess both of mine were over spec.
