Pretty sure you have the TSB already. Count the number of leafs you got back there.

3 non-tsb

4 w/tsb

You will be nose high IMO. Everyone seems to have their own opinion of what level is though. You have to decide what level is for yourself. I'm sitting at NTB as I type waiting on mine. I'm doing 1.75 with the rear tsb. That seems to be level to me from my research.

I was going to do the install myself but they are doing the front for $100 and then what alignment package I pick. He'll it was going to cost me $40-$50 just to pull the coil assembly myself and have a shop swap them. Can't beat this deal IMO. I'll post pics later.

Awesome looking trucks!!! I have the 2012 DCSB Sport with the 18" wheels and I'm kinda fond of the size now. I believe I have the 4 leaf pack (TSB.) To me the truck looks pretty level, however it looks I like it. Wondering what size tires I could run if I added the 5100's?

Rides great so far. I was worried it would ride rough. Seems about the same with less body roll and less nose dive. I like it!

I think this has been the best thing I did to the truck - same set up here, rides great. When I did the rear TSB leafs, I ran the stock TRD Billy's they installed for a while. The 5100's just feel like a much better shock ride wise. and it seems the 1.75" setting is the sweet spot with our trucks.

Guys, your trucks look great. I just picked up my '13 DCSB Sport so please excuse my noob question. Are all you guys did in the front was just swap out the shock to 5100s? No change out in springs?

Used the factory coil spring, the 5100's have 4 settings to compress the coil giving lift, except for the first setting which is stock height.

Thanks. I understand now. Is there a reason why you guys didn't swap out the stock spring with the eibach one that comes with the toytec lift kit?

For me it was mostly about money. My mods are few and far between since I have a 7 month old. Daycare is a *%$#@. I was just glad to get what I did.
