So, I'm looking at adding a little height to the truck - about 2". I figure going with Bilstiens set to 1.75" plus the 2" AAL on the back would look OK after the AAL settled, but then I start thinking about the benefits (if there are any). You don't really get better ground clearance out of the deal, unless you go high enough to add 285s, and this won't let me do that. So why should I spend $400 on Bilstiens and an AAL when I can tuck 265/75/16s on my truck at stock height with my SR5 setup?
Is there any benefit besides a slightly-noticeable lift to adding Bilstiens and an AAL? I'm thinking I need to either go a full 3" with an OME kit, add 285's, expect to possibly need UCAs and eat the 2 or 3 MPG loss, or just don't do anything and leave it stock height.
Thoughts? Am I missing some benefit to Bilstiens set at mid-height with AALs in the back?
