    I recently lifted my 05, double cab, 4x4, off road, TRD, Taco @2 inches. I measured all four sides before and after the lift. Strange thing is my passenger side is 5/8in higher than my driver side before and after the lift. My fuel tank was about 1/4 tank, bed and cabin were empty.

    Does any one know the problem and how to fix it?

    what kind of lift? block or suspension?

    Generally this is known as taco lean, the drivers weight, the weight of the gas, etc etc etc contribute to sag. with new suspension the problem should be corrected for now. With blocks. problem would persist.

    Replaced rear leaf springs from factory to old man emu from Toytec(CS047R) and front strut spacers from Skyjacker 2in to level off front to rear. Front to rear no issue just side to side. Tire pressure even on all.
