    okay, i'm still not satisfy with my truck having the lean after i installed the 1/4 top plate spacer i got from toyteclifts. right after i installed the spacer, put everything back on, and drove it around the block checked the front level it was good. later that night, got on the highway cruising sudden feel a vibe on the driver side tire wheel shuddering for a few mins. got home, hand tighten the bolts more and realize the lean is back. well that top 1/4 top plate didnt work for the lean, i think i have to get the 1/2 tp spacer with longer stud. heres the pictures after the top plate stalled and 100 miles driven already. forgot to take pictures right after it was installed.

    I have the same issue except I bought wheelers 1/2" spacer and I have L/R specific leafs. It is only level when the gas tank is (near) completely empty. I dunno, I'm just livin with it.

    i can't stand looking at the driver side leaning. inside while driving is no problem, but when its parked and i'm actually looking at the front, it just buggs me. i think i'm gonna give the 1/2 top plate spacer a try and see how it goes. if it doesn't cured the lean, then i'm gonna invest the coilovers.
