3 inch Toytec 884 coil and AAL lift need your feedback on my question

Truck info:
I have a 06 4x4 double cab automatic with 16 inch wheels running BFGís and itís not a TRD and does not have the TSB AAL done. So that being said I just recently put on stock TRD billstein shocks on and now I just ordered a ToyTec 3 inch lift with 884 coils\AAL to run on my stock billstienís.

Now I have a questionÖ.
The toytec AAL will give me 3 leafs + 1 over load in the rear which is find but Iím still with out the TSB leaf.

Question time:

When I put the 884 coils in should I leave out the .5 spacer on top of the coil reason I say this is because remember I donít have the rear TSB leaf so Iím not going to gain a full 3 inch lift in the rear like most and I donít want the front higher than the rear. My theory is I think by leaving the .5 spacer out Iíll end up with a level truck however once the 884 coils sag a bit Iíll end up with the stock rake again.

So give me your feedback or theory or even better if you have a non TRD truck and put a lift in it without doing the TSB post a picture and tell me what your lift is.


PS: Iím not eligible for the TSB ALL because my 06 has 91000 miles on it. No Warranty for me.

Excuse my ignorance as I didn't even read the whole post. Shouldn't you be using the 885's on the double cab?

+1 on the 885's for a DC...but it might still work out.

Depending on where you got your OME springs and how long ago- They may or may not sag a fair bit and folks have had mixed results with how much lift they gained- So I would go without the spacer and add it in if need be....That's the route I'm going. Once I get to my install.

You probably want to think about some OME shocks...The extended stoke will work better with the lift.
