Blocks suck. If anything, do an AAL. Best of luck!

true, a 1" block shouldn't hurt. personally id get a custom 1" aal made to increase load capacity and it will just be a better bet to do. but a block of that size should be too bad. i say do it if you dont wanna get an aal

I also want to lift the back end 1" maximum. I heard pro comp makes a short aal that should get the job done. Also considering the 1" block as well. Anyone have the toytec 1.5 aal....... does it settle at all?

block or leaf

With a block only 1 inch is not so bad.With blocks you can get wraping or weel hop on a hard take off,But with the add aleaf the rear end will make the ride realy stiff !rougher ride

I vote no as well. Blocks increase axle wrap like mentioned before, and they don't increase load capacity so your springs with still sag just as much as they do now. Blocks go under the springs so they won't even increase the gap between the bump stops so you'll still bottom out under the same amount of weight.

What is the worst that could happen? I say put them on, and if you don't like the result, then go with the AAL

Well for one, he'll be taking the time to rip apart the suspension an extra time if he doesn't like it. Personally, I hate having to redo work because I didn't do it right the first time.

I wanted the TSB done, but I wasn't motivated enough to take my AAL out, go to the dealership, get it done, and then put the AAL back. But maybe he likes suspension work.

No vote here. Like everyone else said go with an AAL. I got mine from Wheelers Offroad, but Toytec also offers one. Make sure it is the longer AAL, not the short ass one that Pro Comp makes. Also make sure it comes with anti-friction pads. Good luck.
