I have been recently approached by a fellow taco brother and was told that he "fixed the lean."
My buddy tells me that 2g-present Tacos lean on the driver side. I've had my taco for about a year n some change and i haven't noticed it.

simply here inquiring if this is true or just another way to spend more money on the taco jajaj

it's real. no chupacabra stuff.

There is some logic in it since the fuel tank, the battery and the driver are all on that side. I haven't noticed it to any great degree on any of mine but I'm not a big guy either.

i can't assume that this is an issue that will affect the overall ride n use of the truck, right?

It's purely cosmetic.

Adding a lift sometimes accentuates the lean. Some have just a front lean and some have a rear lean or both.

Mine even leans with coilovers. I could fix it by adjusting the driver one I guess, but then I have to pull it to put it in the strut compressor, then realign the truck... not worth it. lol.

Oh, and the lean is real. I have my driver's side coilover cranked slightly more than the passenger's side. Perfectly level.

Just learned last night that with lots of lube I can adjust my Fox's in the truck with the suspension at full droop. Who knew :ROFLMAO:
