    Been a few weeks since I've been on here, Anyways I am running Bud Built Skids everywhere and in doing so the infamous taco lean is worse since there is like another 50-60 lbs on the driver side due to the gas tank skid.

    I recently installed the IVD Remote Reservoir Extended Coilovers and on the driver side I have had to crank them up about 3/4-1" more then the passenger side just to make the truck sit level up front.

    In the rear I am running All Pro 3" Leafs which consist of 10 leaves and an axle wrap leaf. To help alleviate the taco lean and allow me to uncompress my driver side front coil a little, should I (a.) just add a small 1/2 block to the driver side rear leaf spring or (b.) just remove the smallest leaf or two from the passenger side leaf pack? Option (b.) would be the easiest and cheapest solution and I am sure would alter the spring rate a little but would it alter it enough that I would notice?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Nathan

    I'd scan through the FJ Cruiser forums as well. It's more of a "'Yota lean" than a "Taco lean" because the transfer case, driver, fuel tank and battery are all on the same side of the truck.
