3" Lift Question - Swaybar and Driver side lean

I installed a 3" lift setup not too long ago, and now my rear swaybar is not centered and pushed over to passenger side. The rear endlink on passenger side is straight up and down, but the driverside endlink is angled inward.

Also, I'm still getting driver side lean. Is it possible it's because of the rear swaybar? I'm 0.5" lower on the driver side. Everything was purchased new except for LC springs which had 146k miles.

Fronts: Wheeler T1 3" lift springs on Tundra Bilstein 5100 (bottom notch)

Rears: LC 8 wraps with Monroe Shocks for LC. Taller spring on driver side.

Are the springs clocked and seated correctly on the perches on both sides? Almost sounds like one could be clocked just that little bit differently changing the ride height. I am not sure how that would effect the sway bar side to side fitment though.

As a side note, what sway bar end links are you uusing?

Good luck!

Yeah, the springs are seated properly on both sides. I'm running factory endlinks.

Install a toytec front trim spacer on the driver side. This may fix the lean. I also had to add a 10mm ome trim spacer in the driver rear to get more level.

I did. It doesn't budge and also shouldn't they return back to center after driving around? Ive loosened all the brackets pertaining to the swaybar and still no luck.

I think he's suggesting that you remove it altogether.

Also, part of the reason you have lean and your rear sway bar may not be completely "centered" anymore is likely due to your panhard bar.

When you add lift to the rear, your panhard bar actually causes your entire rear axle to shift slightly to one side.

Although a 3" lift shouldn't make THAT big of a difference.
