    I've read where Tacos have up to a 1/2" lean on the drivers side. Mine was perfectly level (side to side) before the TSB.
    Now it measures 3/4" high on the passenger side in the rear... the front is still level.
    Is it possible they installed the darn things wrong? Is this normal? Could this happen if they did not center the spring correct? Just looking for feed back before I call the dealer & make them fix it... Thanks!

    Sorry about another tsb thread, but looked thru 200 plus threads that a search came up with and did not see this

    That's not acceptable, get them to look at it.

    Or, get yourself some fat friends and sit them in the passenger side.

    How full was your gas tank when you first measured it?

    I'm no expert, but what I read about this... some put in a spacer to raise the drivers side... others have swapped springs as they are 2 different sizes and someone most likely installed the wrong side on yours

    Mine sat level when the springs were new....and even after 1.5 years, the springs have settled and they still sit level (even with or without a full tank of gas).

    Take it back to the dealer and have them fix it
