NEED REAR SUSPENSION ADVICE

Just wanted to poll the troops on a rear lift/level setup. I just did billys up front at 1.75 and am stoked about looks and performance. As it sits now however I'm 1/4 to 1/2" nose high. I am completely stock non tsb in rear and would like to go up 1/2" plus improve rear capability for hauling, ie would rather avoid spacer. Has anyone done a progressive pack and removed more than just the overload leaf to avoid a rake?
option 2 would be some sort of airbag setup? Any clue on ride quality and cost?
I have a T100 for most hauling duties (primarily firewood) and may need to retire it in the next year or 2.
Please weigh in yall. Muchos Gracias!

i would say get the TSB springs if you can or a 1" AAL. I think a progressive pack would be too sot for what you want.

Air ride wont really give you a lift, it will hold level when its really loaded. if you try to lift with air bags it will ride like shit

The progress leaf pack will reduce the towing and hauling capability, it's made for flexability not capacity. I have the Wheelers single AAL and it has stiffened the back end up a good amount but does provide about 1.5" of lift. The only option I could see for you is to have custom leaf pack built and ask them to keep it stock height while improving load capacity. unfortunantly the majority of ways to improve strength includes increased ride height, unless you go custom. Hope that helps.

Oh and I forgot to mention there are air bag setups, I don't know if that's something you wanted to look into?

I suggest doing the Toytec Non-TSB 1.5" AAL if you are over 36k. I have this with my 3 leaf crap pack out back and have hauled 1500 lbs a couple of times without issue. I you aren't over 36k, get the free 4 leaf pack from dealer. My 5100s are set on 2.5" and I have 1.25" rake, higher in back.

Thanks for input guys.
With a toytec AAL, my understanding is that you maintain all of your current leafs. Would removing one of the factory leafs and doing the 1.5 or 2" AAL be an option to keep from having a 1" rake?
Any thoughts?
truck has 103k miles so springs are pretty tired IMO

I think you will be happy with the ride, I'm not sure you needed the longer u bolts though so maybe you can cancel those. I would call Toytec and make sure you have to have them. I didn't need longer ones for my wheelers AAL, but I had the TSB pack.
