Need Help Regarding 5100's w/Rear TSB

Ok, I've search "5100's w/Rear TSB" but didn't get but two hits, so I'm gonna ask this:

I'm about to install 5100's and I want to set them at 1.75. I've got the TSB springs and from my research it looks like my truck should sit about level with this set up. However, I'd like a little rake (maybe a 1/2 inch or so). I thought about getting the Toytec 1.5 AAL but I'm worried it'll raise my rear too high.

So here's my questions:

--Does anyone know of a 1 inch AAL?

--Or, would a Toytec 1 inch block work along with the TSB springs?

Thanks for any input!

Never heard of or seen a 1" AAL. A 1" block would work but may induce axle wrap.

How about putting the 5100's at .85?

You will still have a rake with the TSB spring and 5100's set at 1.75". I can't tell you how much but I was completely satisified when I did mine.

I am in the exact same boat right now, but I have a cap on the truck and that amount of weight with the rest of the bed empty seems to make it ride just a little bit low in the back. There is a 1" block from Toytec or a 1.5" AAL for the TSB rear leafs, but I am thinking the same as the OP and would both or those be too much?

Bolt, what did you end up doing? Anything?

1 inch really isn't much. I found some .75" flat stock in our shop that would have done perfectly. If its just going to be a spacer, look for some flat stock, drill a hole and go.

I haven't done anything yet. I may try the block if my TSB springs end up settling much, but so far I'm happy with the rake I ended up with:

With my Icons at default setting (supposedly 2.5"), I'm actually sitting level with TSB leafs. Bilsteins at 1.75" may actually give you the rake you need.

It is crazy how different each of these are! This is me with the Billies at 1.75" and just the TSB Rear Leaf, nothing else. I am barely level or even slightly nose high...
