    hey I got the rear TSB done and yes I got the 4 leaf springs on each side and each side has diferent part numbers. Everything seams fine other then the driver side sits shorter then the passenger side. From the leveld floor to the bottom of the fender is 36"1/2 on the driver side and on the passenger side is at 37" 1/2. Its 1 inch diference. This can't be normal what can I do, has anyone had this before. I plan to call the dealer tommorow.

    They might have placed them on the wrong sides. I know when I did my own personal truck I double checked the part numbers. They are side specific, meaning one part number is for the drivers left side and the other for the pass right side.

    I Thought all Stock 2nd Gen. Tacomas Sagged A Little On The Driver Side? I Have Heard It Called "The Taco Lean"? I Didn't Think It Was A Whole Inch Though.

    Not sure if this will help you but I think the correct part numbers are:

    8210-04570 PS, and 48220-04210 DS

    Yes, with a full tank of gas there is a noticeable lean to the drivers side.. but for some reason this is fixed by adding a 10mm spacer to the front DS shock and not the rear, which has never made complete sense to me I must confess since the tank is in the rear.

    But in any case if it did not lean previously it reasons that it should not lean now. It is possible to put the leafs on incorrectly, wrong side. That seems plausible to me.

    Yeah right now I have a full tank of gas but I don't think that would matter the truck should be designed to carry a full tank. I will check the front and see if theirs a diff in the front. I didn't check if their was a difference before I got the TSB done.

    I almost have the same problem, but I have added the Toytec TSB AAL also. One side sits almost 1" higher in the rear. Not sure if it was like this pre-TSB AAL or not, as I did not measure.

    If they swapped shocks, they may have mixed them up, as to what side they go on.
