2" lift in front do I need to lift back to level (no tsb aal)

Doing a 2" spacer lift (so 1" spacer) for the front to level the truck. I have a 4wd Sr5 without the TSB (standard leaf pack). Was wondering if I will need to aal or a 1'' block in the back, what do you guys think? if its only a smudge high in the front I wont be to upset. Just no "bro lean". Tried to search for this and only found people doing 1.75'' on the billies to level with no tsb. Thanks in advance.

Billies don't add lift to the rear. You need an AAL or the 3 leaf add on. You can also get a 2" lift with some IronMan leaf springs.

It will probably will be a little high in the front, but only barley. If you do blocks or an AAL you will get some of your rake restored and it wont be really nose up when you have a load in the bed.

I never said they did, people add billies in front, adjust to 1.75 and thats it to level their trucks. I'm doing a 1'' spacer (2'' of lift) in front to level my truck. Was just concerned with the rear and not wanting to have any lean since I only have the standard 3 leaf pack.

With 5100's at 1.75 and TSB (4 leaf pack), truck should be about level. If you are setting the front to 2" it may be a little higher up front

Seem like you don't have TSB leafs, so with a 3 leaf pack you will be definitelly nose high.

You need an aal or get TSB leafs if you are eligible, or a new leaf pack etc.

If you are adding a spacer, you may as well get the billies. Only reason I say that is it is the same procedure to add a spacer as it is billies.

If you want to level out the back, go with wheelers aal or something similar. You can also order the dakars and remove the overload leaf. I know people do that for less of a lift.

^X2 and a 1.5" aal or progressive pack for the rear. I would go with the 5100's for the front set at 1.75. You will get a much better ride and bang for your buck.

Just to give you an idea. I also have an access cab with billies set at 2.5" in front with 1.5" AAL in rear and that pretty much leveled me out. So I guess that would mean if I had the front set at 1.75" with no rear AAL that would be about .75" higher in the front.
