    I have an issue with the rear suspension on my truck. It sits a little lower on the left side then the right. My friends call it the gangster lean!!! Will replacing my leaf packs fix this? Btw I have a 2" lift on the truck. Just the blocks in the back. Any help appreciated.

    Yup fairly common among tacomas. The battery, gas tank, front drive shaft and tcase, and driver are all on one side. New leafs may help but beefed taco also sells .25", .5", and .75" blocks that are meant to be used ony on the driver side to combat the lean.
