    Hey guys I'm new to this forum so all advice would be greatly appreciated,
    Ok so almost every Tacoma from '99-'03 has what is known as taco lean, i.e. the truck sags slightly on the driverside. Has anyone ever had this problem fixed? Obviously it is a week spring in the suspension but is it the front coil spring or the rear leaf springs?

    actually its cause all the heavy stuff like the gas tank and whatnot is on the drivers side.
    guys usually get a 1/4 inch spacer put in on the drivers side to correct it

    I saw a 1st gen today and noticed it was leaning pretty good.

    I use a top plate spacer from toytec on my 2nd gen
