Leveling kits on Tacoma's

Hey everyone was looking at putting a 2 inch leveling kit on my 2005 Tacoma. I wasn't sure if it is good or bad to only have it in the front and the rear still stalk???? Need some help!

Depends on what you plan to do with the Tacoma and how much money you want to spend.

If you plan on doing much offroading then don't get spacers.

If you don't plan on doing much offroading then just save the money and get the spacers.

5100's. Set them at 2 1/2'', then your rear end will ''stalk'' the front and require work also.

OP, my info as in my sig, 5100's set at 1.75 with rear leaf tsb. Much better than spacers, doesn't cost that much more, and the install is pretty much the same process/cost. Ride is great, I like it better than stock. I highly recommend them unless you want to go higher.

I agree with everyone 5100s, no spacers. Mine are set at 1.75 with 4 stock leafs in the back.

With 5100's on all four corners and the front set at 1.75", will 1" blocks in the rear still give you a slight rake? I have a '13 and it has the 4 leaf pack.
