Leveling kits

Anyone have experience with these? Any pics of them installed with the new stance? 2012 pics prefered!!!

I am not going to be doing tires and wheels soon so with that being said would it look goofy?

Leveling kits are like push up bra's.

It's going to look better from a distance, but true enthusiasts are going to know better.

True...but I only have so much $$$ so you gotta prioritize. My leveling kit cost me about $50.00 and I have no delusions that I'm ready to tackle any off-road situation. But, eventually I will be able to put the lift I want on (Toytec 3" OME lift) and be ready for more fun off-road.

I hear you there man I am tight budget myself but I got lucky and got in on a group buy on my eibach springs. I think I paid $106 for them and they leveled out my truck nice after I got the rear leaf TSB.

Bilstein 5100's at 1.75'' in front, Bilstein 5100's and TSB AAL in rear.

(Truck looks a little nose high in the picture, but I'm just parked on a slight incline, my setup levels almost perfectly)

Only problem with the kits that are based on or coupled with the AAL TSB is, is there is no AAL TSB for the '12's (at least yet).

It's still just leafs and adding another to lift it. Nothing scientific about it. Better than a block and less iffy than using spacers to lift the front. Just get one with desired amount of lift.
