Are rear 5100's necessary?

On a 2009 TRD Sport with 20K miles, do I need the rear 5100's or is my stock suspension about the same?

I am adding them in the front to achieve a 1.75" lift. Just not sure if I want the back too. I am also adding a 1.5" tsb AAL.


Also, if I decide I later want a 3" lift, I can set these back to 0" and replace the coils with 885's...correct?
I think 1.75" is enough but may decide later to go higher.

The 5100 rears allow for up to 2" of lift in the rear. It's your truck but I would put them on all 4's.

Yes you can set them back to 0 and use 885. Some members have them set to .85 to compensate for sagging/settling.

I bought all four corners from DSM a couple weeks ago. ( got lucky). I look at it like this, why wear a nice dress shirt with cutoff shorts.
