    Hey Guys,

    Been browsing things here for a while picking up info (and waiting for my truck...), and yesterday finally got around to installing my lift. Toytech adjustable coilovers, TC UCA's, Diff drop, rear AAL.

    Everything went fine, we adjusted the coilovers up from the 2.5" stock setting to 3", and once everything was on the truck we measured again and sure enough I had around 3" of lift in the front (driver and pass side, measuring floor to top of fender). Took it for a bit of a test drive to let things settle, and came in and re measured everything and now the front end only has 2" of lift on the driver side and 2.5" lift on the passenger side?
    I"ll see if I can get picture tomorrow when i take my stock wheels off to put my new ones on so you guys can see the threads on the coilover, but I'm not sure whats going on here that I would have LESS lift then what the coilover came set at, especially after we adjusted it up! Just as a side note incase it helps, with stocks tires and wheels, my front end (floor to top of fender opening) is 35" stock on both sides, then when we put the lift on it went up to 38" both sides, then after a quick drive its sitting at 37.5" passenger side and 37" on drivers side.

    Any help or ideas is much appreciated!

    Do you have a lot of weight on the drivers side. not you but equipment?
    Is it leaking or anything like that? I doubt it but i just want to make sure

    Driver side lower than passenger side is normal due to the weight of the fuel tank and the driver... :D

    can't help ya on the other issue.

    Yeah it's that famous "Taco lean" or whatever they call it. Mine is the same way, it's about 1/4" higher on the passenger side compared to the driver side.

    mine is the same way, but i had heard of the taco lean before hand, so i kinda expected it. i may adjust it to account for it later,but im not sure yet.

    It'll take 300-500 miles for the springs to settle.Mine have come down 1/2" so far.Few more weeks i'll crank it up where i want it.Then get the alignment.:thumbsup:

    Don't have any additional weight so I'll assume its just taco lean and adjust it accordingly later on! Thanks guys
