    so a while back i got a revtec 3 inch suspension lift installed and big surprise a couple years went by and my stock leaf springs wore out, so i took the blocks out and put 3 inch lift all pro springs in. now my rear end sits higher than my front. I think all i have are 2.5inch coil spacers in the front. is there anyway i can get the front up just a tad higher? im hoping for an easy fix but im pretty sure there isnt one. Also my taco is a first gen. i would appreciate any advice. thanks!

    what's your hub/fender reading in the rear?

    new leaf springs will give more than their rated lift until theyre broken in (usually)

    Ditch the Revtek spacers and get some coils.

    Konaborne has a point how new are the springs? They will eventually settle.

    depending on what coil you get
    my eibachs got me 3.5" lift initially

    have you wheeled the leafs? that breaks em in a lot quicker than road driving
