Add a leafs

I've already done a add a leaf to my taco around a year ago that came with my tuff country 3" lift. Can I keep adding leafs to compensate if I get 5100s?

Was looking at getting more than 3 inch of lift in front and I'm not into the bulldog look(low in back high in front). So add another leaf to level truck.

Adding more than 1 leaf will put too much stress on the stock leaves. If you want to go more than 3 inches I'd suggest you buy an aftermarket leaf pack altogether.

Add a leafs already make the ride a little crappier, but if you're not concerned about ride quality and just want to have a ridiculously lifted truck (I personally don't have much respect for those who have this mentality), you can get a set of extended lift shackles to give you about 1.5 more inches, and you can get lift blocks that can give you 3+ more inches.

I stacked two aal with no problem what so ever. I have the Procomp 3 inch suspension lift. It came with a aal and new shocks. The truck would "bulldog" slightly and was really noticable when I towed my boat- 17ft.

I added a Wheelers aal and love it. I'm slightly higher in the rear and I noticed no differance in ride quality. The wheelers aal was shorter than the procomp aal. I stacked them from longest to shortest.
Four months and no problems. The truck stays level now when I tow the boat.
I think I got about 2 1/2- 2 3/4 of total lift in the rear.
I did get longer U bolts though and new centering pins.

People get the TSB done-aal and sometimes it not enough. They make aal's for people with the tsb done. They seem to work just fine, plus cheaper then getting a full leaf pack. Toytec has some on their site and so does Wheelers.
