    Hey all, My truck is a 2008 Tacoma DC LB 4x4. I also have a big ARE shell on it. And 265/75/16 Duratracs.

    I got a steal on some top plate spacers and want to run them a while in order to decide if I like the Taco with small lift and 285s or if I will want to go 6" and 35s.

    Currently my truck is all factory, before measuring I thought from the rake I had about 2" higher in the back. So I would be .5" high in the front after lift.

    I measured it and I am almost 1.5" higher in back. I also noticed the driver side is about 1/2" lower up front and 1/4" lower in back on the drivers side. But it does not seem visually noticeable.

    I thought stock trucks did not have the lean?

    And does anyone think my truck would luck stupid with the front at 1.5" higher than rear?
    EDIT they are 2.5" top plate spacers

    I'm probably just going to order AAL but trying to decide if I should just put on the spacers this weekend and drive it like that a week or two until I get the AAL in.

    all tacos have the taco lean- all the heavy stuff are on one side; doesnt matter if the truck is lifted or not

    if the front's higher than the rear it'll look odd IMO, that and your headlights will be shining in the faces of oncoming traffic


    Edit:
    but depending on how big the spacers are, you could end up with a "level" look moreso than a front rake
