    Recently lifted 2012. At the gas station tonight I noticed it looked like the drivers side rear was leaning down a little bit. I came home and took out the tape measure. Sure enough its about 1/2" to 1" lower from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fender. Why?

    Isn't the taco lean in the front? He's leaning in the rear.

    This ^ most lift kits come with/recomend lean spacers. What lift do you have? Taco lean is because of the added weight on the drivers side, gas tank and battery. Stock suspension compensates for that. You need to add a 1/4-1/2" top plate spacer most likely depending on what lift you have

    True but he is probably leaning in the front also, if he corrects this it should help level out the rear

    I have a 6" Maxtrac lift. I've heard of Taco Lean before but didn't know what it was. Its not a huge deal. Just was curious.
