    k&n cold air intake 57 series, flowmaster 50 series delta flow, viper alarm, auto door locks, big three upgrade, kinetik hc1400r battery, 1/0 gauge wire, Pioneer 4500, Streetacos 3" tapered blocks, Belltech 3" drop leafs, Qa1 coil overs with 550lbs coils, ball joint flip, rear KYB Monomax shocks, 18x8 +40 Enkei Kojins, 225/40/18 Nittio Motivo tires, LCE drilled and slotted rotors, Hawk HPS brake pads, roll pan, 01+ taillights
    So i lowered the front of my 1995 Tacoma with belltech lowering coils after having done the back, and there is about half an inch height difference between the left and right sides. The left side being lower the right by about half an inch Is this the infamous Taco lean or is something not right?

    you the battery and the gas tank are on the left side so yes it does lean to the left. try measuring when you are at near empty on your tank.

    So the lean is starting to drive me nuts cause i swear it wasn't there before I lowered the front. Is there anything i could do to fix it aside from relocating the battery to the bed?

    I guess you could lower that side a bit more to match the lower side.

    Well I thought about that, but I already bought blocks and such. The only way I could lower the front would be to cut the lowering coil right?

    So i wnet out and measured my truck again. The front is lower on the left side by half an inch and the rear left is lower by an inch. Could the shocks be different lengths and off set it like that? i didn't even think to check to make sure the rear shocks were the same length before i installed them i just assumed they were since i triple checked before i ordered them. The other thing i thought was maybe the ubolt nuts on one side had come loose compared to the other side making it off set?

    Not too sure on anything before 05+ lol.

    I know for us we can use some spacers for the front. I guess cutting the front coil just 1/2in wouldn't be TOO bad. Could be worse, right?
