    Ok, so I installed the Sittin Sic lowering kit and then got an allignment. The other day a buddy of mine comes up to me and asks me why my truck is leaning, I'm like WHAT??? Yep it's leaning to the left only on the rear about 1/2 an inch to 3/4. I looked under there and everything is still installed correctly, blocks are exactly the same. HELP PLEASE!!!:bawling:

    If everything is installed correctly and lined up, maybe your bed is a little tweaked?:dontknow:

    Thats is strange. Could it have been leaning before the drop and is more noticable now because there is less fender gap?

    hmm. double check to make sure you have the pin lined up right. or maybe one of the blocks is shorter than the other.

    Checked pins, blocks are the same. It could have been leaning before, but from what?

    not to be mean, but from being fat???

    I'm a pretty big guy also, when I dropped my corolla my driver side was half 3/4 inch lower then the other side.

    BTW i saw your truck a few weeks back on Bell Chase Highway. TX plates right?

    So it is the rear that is out of wack not the front? Well check pins both top and bottom and other than that make sure that one of your leafs is not sagging (tpypta is infamous in the past for sagging leafs). If the coils are the problem let me know ASAP and I will take care of you, but you need to give it atleast 1 1/2 months to settle. This may be a dumb statement but where you parked on level ground?

    PM me and keep me informed.

    It's not the coils, front is fine. Might be a leaf, I'll have to check when I get home. My garage is pretty level, and my work parking lot, and the gas station, not my ditch though.:smile:

    who else has this issue? I installed SS coils and 2" blocks. Now I have a bigger gap from the top of the passenger rear tire to the bottom of the fender than on the drive side rear tire. Issue is really only on the back tires. Front coils seem to be near perfect. Any way to fix this?

    wshsbears is actually right. All Tacomas lean left. You may not see it with your eyes, but they do. But for this guys problem, its not that I don't think.
