    So i ordered some 886's with shocks for front and year along with dakar pack. so i put them on and noticed front was 2 1/4 lower than the rear. Well i was ordering the add a leaf for the dakar pack so it would sag when i hauled my quad and said f*ck it and went against all the rules and got the toytec top plate thinking hey it will level it out a bit. well everything is on and wow is there a massive gap in rear fnder well and mickey thompson 285/70/r17 tires. It makes those tires look tiny. The front looks good but the drivers side is now 1/2 inch lower than the rest of truck and everything is installed identical and drivers side has trim packer and it rides like a wagon. So im taking that spacer off and no more good idea fairy for me and also if you get that add a leaf you better be hauling a truck bed full of concrete cause it takes massive amounts of weight to even move the truck down a millimeter my ltr-450 didnt even budge it and it weghs around 400lbs. hope this helps somebody. cause i didnt listen to the millions of tacoma world folk and now i paid.

    I am glad you admitted that we were right... Spacers aren't made for comfort. :cool:
