Few Questions

First post here... Been on the forum for a while and I think I've found answers to most my questions, just have a couple more.

I have an 02 4 door trd limited 4x4. I'm looking into coilovers up front (toytec, maybe some icons or others if I have the cash)...

First question: my leaf springs are almost horizontal, go for the new full leaf pack? Deaver/Alcan/Wheelers? Sounds like I won't benefit from an AAL...

Second: tires. I'm going back and forth between 32x11.5 and 285/75/16. Truck currently has a revtek leveling spacer and 265/75/16.

Truck is a daily driver. Trail use isn't huge but some, lots of snow and hunting use.

Thanks for any and all input!
Wolf

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Welcome to TW!

You dont have to get a full leaf pack. You can get the 3 leaf AAL from Wheelers. The OME/Dakar pack. Its a nice lift for the rear. Also, You should consider a 265/75/16 (32" tall) tire. Less chance of having to trim.

Oh nice, just checked those 3 AAL's out. I think I'll do that.

As for the tires, I have 265/75/16 now with just the leveling kit... I'd like to go bigger...

Thanks for your reply!

Thanks for your reply!

Then by all means, Go for the 285's. But, Be prepared to trim as needed.

Hi there Neighbor! Def. go for the 285's. I didnt have to trim that much. And it looks way better IMO.

If you would like, and have some free time. You can check out my set-up. I have the AAL inthe rear with a 1" block bc I dont do much offroading and it works well.
