no diff drop needed and you will still be about .5" higher in the back. mine is almost exactly level and i don't have the TSB.

I'd Go a 16" trd wheel or aftermarket 4.5 " backspace 0 offset before spending $200 on spacers .

Why? spacers are cheaper and don't cause problems. i would love to get aftermarket wheels but don't really have the $$$ at the moment. i don't see me buying any in the near future either.

Spacers are $200 + tax . I almost went spacers but got my 16" comps for $500 OTD . If you want spacers go for it . I think the 16" trd 's backspace will work and you can pick those up used for $200 . Just remember some tire shops won't do rotations / touch em with spacers .

if you put the 5100's on before they do the tsb your get a free alignment.

I'll call the dealership and check. But why would they mess with my front end? Having trd sport shouldn't they just change rear leafs? Hell it's worth a try!

could someone please explain as if I'm a retard(cause I am) the difference between the TSB rear and AAL? I keep seeing people on here saying that they have the TSB and want to do the AAL also.

Reason I'm asking is cause I have a 09' DCSB pre/Sport that I have not done anything to and just found out about this TSB thing. Rear does ride pretty harsh in the rear loaded or unloaded and I am planning to talk to my dealer about it. Unfortunetly I'm sitting at 52k and hoping to get the TSB rear done. Would I still want to do the AAL if I get my TSB rear done? Plan is to do the 5100 set at 1.75" up front.

Thanks in advance for the help and answers.

Bilsteins set at 1.75, rear tsb and new duratracs. The truck seems to ride much better on the road with the new 5100's.

i see what you're saying. i'm not rubbing or anything so ifi got spacers or wheels it would be for looks and a wider looking stance. maybe santa will bring me something nice this year.

The Rear Leaf TSB just adds a leaf so that the leaf pack in the rear adds up to 4 leafs. If you get an AAL for a lift for a truck that has had the TSB done, you need the 1.5'' AAL instead of the 2'' to level out. The TSB adds an inch or two of lift to the rear but mostly settles back down.

ya mine came stock with it (all Canadian trucks did) but i never understood the actual lift of it. I just as we speak ordered the 5100's for the front and am gonna set them at 1.75 with the 4th leaf already there and 265/70/17 BF Goodrich AT's. Anyone think I should get 5100's in the rear too? My truck already has the yellow and blue HD bilsteins, so Im waiting to decide on the 5100's

the TSB just kind of "stiffens" the ride for when your hauling stuff. not considered a "lift" although it does give .5"-1". i don't have the TSB so it looks like i may need to go with a 2" AAL.

as for the rear 5100s, i didn't get them but when i put the AAL in, i'll need the 5100s or maybe 5125s, they're slightly longer. that'll be researched when the time draws near.
