    I recently took my Tacoma to the local Toyota dealer to have the rear spring TSB performed. After the service work was performed, the service rep. said they replaced the rear coils, rear shocks, new bump stops, and for some reason they also replaced the front springs and shocks. The problem is, the driver's side sits 3/4 inch lower on both front and rear. I measured several times with a wood ruler and the same location on both sides with a level, so my measurements are correct. The Measurements are. Driv. Front 34 5/8 Pass front 35 3/8
    Driv. rear 37 Pass rear 37 3/4

    I want to raise the pass front about 3/4" and the Driver front about 1 1/2" to make the truck level in the front. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.:confused:

    Search for "Taco Lean"

    Don't see why the dealer would replace the shocks, since your truck already came with the required Bilsteins from the factory, and the TSB explicitly said not to replace them (which means the dealer wouldn't be reimbursed by Toyota for the shocks).

    I've spent hours searching Taco Lean, but I have'nt found the solution yet. I've also called Toytec, Downsouth Motorsports and OME with no helpful advice so far. Also pre TSB my truck had the Bilstein's on all 4 corners. The shocks they put on are solid black, I have no idea what they are.

    Sounds like they installed the driver side on the passenger side, and vice versa.

    I've been doing a lot of research on how to raise the front of my truck about 1 1/2" and I think I have decided to go with a coil lift. Would you guys go with the OME 883 coils or the Eibach 620 lb. lift coils from Toytec? From what i've read they both provide about 1.6" of front lift. Hopefully going with a stiffer spring will decrease the driver's side lean and make the front end level on both sides.
