    I just got my wheelers 5-leaf pack delivered yesterday. I noticed that the drivers side leaf is arched more than the passenger side. Is that the way it's supposed to be? Anyone else notice this on theirs?

    It's for taco lean. Even the stock springs have a bigger arch on the drivers side.

    There is more weight on the drivers side.


    I was thinking the other night. If it were possible to relocate the gas tank to the other side. U think that would help?

    You talking about your 5-leaf pack? Does that mean even with the 5 leaf, you still got the driver's side lean after a while?? I just got the 5 leaf plus OME 880 coils. How long you think before I inevitably get the freaking lean again? Damn.

    No no no no man lol i put an AAL in for more lift, not to correct lean. I have Eibach coils so they didn't provide enough lift. I haven't had em very long so i have no idea how long they will hold

    Oh, haha alright, sorry. After spending all this money on new suspension components, I'd be pissed if the truck still sat loose and uneven. I'm looking forward to getting the truck back from the shop.
