Bilstein 1500's at 2.5"

I wanna get a couple billy 1500's for my front and set them at 2.5". Does anyone have any suggestions for a leaf pack or aal for my rear, so the truck will ride as level as possible. And with this setup, is there anything else I should do?

With the 5100s set at 2.5" of lift. The rear on most tacomas needs a 1.5" AAL to make the truck sit level.

Diff drop won't do you a hill of beans. 1/2" drop is not going to help a CV angle that much.

5100 are nice, but that's going to be one stiff ride if you use factory springs. Might look into Eibach (if you can find them) or OME 885 to pair up with the 5100. Oh and FYI you may (I said may, not need) some new UCA to help with alignment.

Used to be Eibach, but I don't think they make them anymore. So for double cabs they are running the OME 885 and the access cab OME 884 springs.

Do you go off roading much? Not just taking it down a dirt road every now and then.

HA! Yeah right! Not since my twins were born. No time til the get older. So mean time, no. Hard with three kiddos and working 16hr days. Momma gets a little burnt out so it'd be a pretty crappy deal for me to just take off all day when I could help her

Well that's kind of my point, running that stiff isn't going to affect your ride that much around town. But off roading my limit your capabilities due to a harsh and jaring ride.

I see what you did there...
Good point though. On road it's wonderful. The jarring ride (for me atleast) doesn't bother me cause I don't go bombing it and it's mostly trail. Haven't made it to the desert yet and given this weekend I don't know when that will happen

Yep - I have 5100's and I have a 1 inch block. For a perfect level, I would go 1.5 AAL.

For $299.00 and you do it yourself...not bad. I have the 5100's and I dont think the ride is stiff at all - especially after a month or so. They relaxed a bit.
