    had my 2010 Tacoma trd at the dealer, complaining that my truck is crooked, thought it was first just my laneway, but with a tape measure it sit higher by 1 inch on 1 side than the other,

    dealer said they are all like that, I call BS but they say there is nothing to fix except aftermarket levelling kit, which most likely would void the warranty, not entirely impressed, first heater tick tick tick, with no fix, and now a body lean, WTF

    True , it's reffered to as Taco lean , there is a TSB for the heater blower tick as well , you can get that fixxed under warranty .

    Cheer up .

    Oh sure, it's still a road or highway, but what do you call the portion in between the painted lines? That's a lane.

    The taco lean is not BS , it's real ,
    that's why the aftermarket lift kits have what's called a 1/4" trim packer that you place on one side only to correct this tendency.

    not saying the lean itself is BS, just the fact Yoda knows it exists, but fail to correct a small imperfection

    It would be a hard thing to plan for, the weight of gas changes as it gets empty, and driver's weight varies too. Can't account for everyone's size, would never get it perfect.

    it really is what they do,lean that is. my 02 did it from about 20k i assumed it was my fault because i tend to load the driver side front and rear seats as well as the driver side bed with tools debris and me...good news is that when the wife finally noticed i told her the suspension was wore out and i had to replace everything, she agreed, hello 3.5 lift kit with dirt logics and no fussing from wife.
