Struggling on what to get

I have a 2008 Taco sport.

I am going to be getting new tires which I am planning on getting 265 70 17.

My stock are 265/65/17



I am also going to be getting 5100 bills all around.

My question is what should I place the from at 2.5" or 1.75" and Why?


Thanks

08 sport here too. Did you get the rear spring tsb? The front 5100 Bilsteins are adjustable, not the back. A year after i had my tsb done and it has settled so .85 looks best. Use your jack and see what looks level. I have the Tire size you are planning on-- 265/70/17 and they will fit with stock shocks. First thing I did was go up a size with tires and no problems.

I don't know what TSB is but I know I haven't done it because I haven't done anything.

I am looking at doing Polycomp AT and I realize the rear don't adjust I would just like new shocks and might as well use the same.

So what size should I adjust to

Rear spring tsb adds a rear leaf under warranty to help the harsh ride with a loaded bed. If you are under warranty it'll cost you nothing. Raises the rear an inch too. If your rear isn't raised at all I'd go .85 or even 0 on the fronts.
