    I just received a package from Toytec. I got a Deaver 1.5 inch AAL, a pair of top plate spacers, and a Taco lean spacer. I currently have Eibach springs and Bilstein 5100's set at .85 up front and stock rear TSB springs. I also have about 200 lbs on my bumper with the winch and mount. Can you guys look at the pic below (sorry for the poor quality) and tell me if I should put all three spacers up front with the AAL or if I should put the Lean correcting spacer on the passenger side and just one top plate spacer on the drivers side. I want the truck to sit level or slightly tail high while hopefully avoiding the need for UCA's.

    Thanks for the help.

    Thanks Wolf.
    I was kind of expecting an answer like this and you make total sense. I want to do the AAL for sure. I also considered just putting the lean spacer up front. My big plan is to do the RCD lift this spring with new wheels and 33 inch tires and putting my current Eibachs with it. Strange thing is there's guys on here with 3 inch front kits and they have way more fender to tire gap than I do.

    You seem pretty coherent:). Well at least ur not telling me to put the AAL up front. My driver side hub to fender measures 22 inches exactly. Pass side is 22.5 inches. I know not to go over 23 on either side. The numbers u states above are actual shim thicknesses. They provide double that amount in lift at the wheel unless I read that wrong.

    I just checked Toytec's site and the lean spacer provides approximately .5 inches and the thicker ones provide approximately .75 inches. Maybe I'll put the thin one on the passenger side and one of the thicker ones on the driver side. Both sides should be 23 inches or under but I still might have a slight difference from side to side.
