    Just got my lift on Monday. I just noticed today that it looks like my drivers side front sits lower than the passenger side front. I have been reading about the "lean" issue with tacomas. I am running the 3" OME with the Nitro shocks, OME881 coils, and the add a leaf and extended shocks in the back. I thought i read somewhere that the lift i have would take care of that issue. Can someone please provide insight for me on the issue. I know 3/8's of an inch isn't that much of a difference but it is noticeable to me. Thanks guys.

    i think the lift came with a 1\4 inch top plate spacer for the full 3 inch lift. Will another 1/4 inch top plate spacer work on top of that.

    NO!
    At this point, you would want to use only the OME 5mm trim packers to address your taco lean.
