Changing My Lift

Hello. I have a 07 Double Cab TRD Off-Road. Last summer I had Schwab put on a Tuff Country 52907 lift kit. I have BFG ATs, 265/75. Thinking about changing my setup without spending too much cash. I would like a more level look than I am getting now. Doesn't look bad but could be a little higher in the front or maybe a little lower in the back. Just wondering if Bilstein 5100's would be a better lift option than I currently have. Thanks

Definitely. They are specifically designed to dampen the stiffer spring rate, unlike you current lift.

I will admit I'm not a big off road guy but it seems that the spacer lift is about the worst lift option? Any idea which Bilstein setting would work with my BFG's. I see there seems to be some debate about Bilstein settings and UCAs.

You can set the billys to whatever you like with the 265/75's since they are 32's. Mine are at 1.75, you can see pics in my build thread.

Great looking truck. When I had mine lifted they installed an AAL. If I set Bilsteins at 1.75 I would probably need to have it removed to be level?
