If you dont offroad at all, why not just get a 2" leveling block, if you start adding leafs your susp. is just going to firm up which you probably wont like.. just my $.02

The reason I can't go with blocks is I have a set of all pro expos that add like 4 inches of lift and it's too much for me. It rides like crap. So kinda trying to figure a way I can still fit
My rims and tires. Thinking a two inch leaf spring any other ideas??

2" add a leaf to your factory leaf packs? Toytec has them for $80; or Old Man Emu leafs give you 2 1/4" of lift in the rear for around $190 per pack.

Take a leaf or two out of your pack, it will lower the lift height and soften the pack. If there is an overload spring take that out first.

I bet 4WD will trade you a very nice set of 2" leaf packs for your expos.

Put about 300# of sand bags between the wheel wells, it'll ride sweet.
