    I know Fabtechs are side specific with one marked driver side. I see no such mark or sticker on the Bilstein so I assume they are not.

    I don't believe so but do remember reading somewhere that the writing on the Springs should be facing out and right side up.

    Might want to look into a 1/4" shim for the drivers side to help with the Tundra gangster lean if you haven't done so already.

    Thought about it but I am not OCD enough to let a 1/4" bother me

    I am guessing that the brake lines are not an issue with a 2" lift.

    Taco always towed kind of rough even with lighter load. Heck the Taco road rougher period but also handled corners a lot better. The Baja has a pretty stiff suspension. Only thing that disappointed towing with Tundra was MPGs. I figure it would do better than Taco but they were same. Much improved towing over Taco.
