Bilstein 5100 + 2" AAL

Just orded a lift for my 06 Double Cab Long Box..... I got 5100's for the front... planning on setting them at 2.5" . I also got the ToyTec 2" Add-a-leaf... Is this too much for the rear?? Does anyone have this set up in their truck?? Just second guessing what i ordered... i dont want it too look dumb... pics would be a big help. I'm running 265/70R17 Mud Terrains...

I went with the 5100 at 2.5 and a 1" lift in the rear to level it. Looks great!

check my build thread. I have that exact setup. As you can see the rear was a little taller at first, but then it settled and now sits right imo.

and i'm now running 285/65-18's with a lot of trimming

My stock leaf pack was horribad (bowed the wrong way), so my AAL's are taking a lot of the weight. I think thats why they settled so fast.

5100s set at 2.5 up front. Icon progressive 3 leaf in rear. Was supposed to be a 1.5" but right now it's about 2 1/4 higher in the rear than it was. Hasn't settled in 3 weeks but I'm expecting it to come down some.
