HOW TO GET EXTRA INCH OR TWO

Just put on 5100's set at .85 with eibach coils and tsb done, the rear is about 1.5 inches higher any way to get that extra height to level out and not spend a whole lot of money. What are my options. Thanks

You beat me to it!!!

You can't set the billy's over 0.85 with the eibachs, you will have no down trave left.



Let me get this right. You have the TSB rear only, and up front you have billy's at 0.85 and eibach springs....and the back is higher than the front? Something isn't adding up here. I have 1.75 up front, tsb rear and I'm level.

Doesn't matter whether he's 4x4 or not. He's raised about 2.5" up front and the rear is now 1.5" higher after the TSB spring only. I'm with KPT, something doesn't sound right.

I just added my 3 leaf AAL which was supposed to be a 1.5". Turned out to be a little over 2". Fronts set at 2.5" and I only have about 1 1/4" of rake.

How many leafs do you have out back?

How long ago did you get the TSB?

Any way you could take a pic of the front and rear suspension setup?

You originally said the rear was 1.5" higher, but there is only 1/2" difference in those measurements. Based on that I would say go to a 1/2 spacer on the driver's side and a 1/4" on the passenger's side. Also, keep in mind that the rear fender is about 1/2" higher than the front even if the truck itself is perfectly level.

Maybe it's just me but you look slightly nose-high in all of the pics in your gallery. If anything I'd lift the rear a little more, not the front.
