What size AAL to achieve stock rake?

I'm hoping the good and knowledgeable people of TacomaWorld can help me out. So I do not qualify for the rear TSB and will be using the Eibachs w/ 5100's set at 0. In theory, that would be a 1.6" lift in the front. In order to get a slight rake, what size leaf would be best: 1", 1.5", 1.75", 2"?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

1.5" will be just under the factory rake, while the 2" will be slightly over. Flip a coin.

Thanks for the quick reply. So my follow up question is there a 2" aal and who sells it? Or do I need to get two 1" aal's?

I don't have the Eibachs, but my 5100s w/ stock coils at 1.75 with a 1.5" 3 leaf progressive AAL from Wheelers gives a fairly close to stock rake IMO.

You could do what Oswego did and keep the overload leaf in for an extra 1/2". The 3-leaf AAL is a slightly more involved installation though, you have to cut off the stock leaf pack wraps and grind off the rivits.

Sorry for the slow response. I do not have the TSB complete. Next lift will be OME or Eibachs over 5100s, UCAs, and A Whole new rear leaf pack. I'm very happy with the handling and ride that the 5100s and AAL gave me.
