Please don't get angry I tried the search - Lesser Lift Question

So, really I tried the search and spent several hours looking for the answer myself, really I did.

Current setup is stock with TSB on the rear.


As you can see, it's pretty tight. I measured 20" at the front and 21.75" at the rear.

But I really don't want a 3" lift, Half of that would be perfect. And I'd really rather have the rear sit higher because I load and tow.

So far it sounds like the best way to achieve that is adjustable 5100's set at .85 (possibly 1.75") Dunno... And an 1.75" (or so) AAL. Am I correct so far?

Second. with the 5100's do I use my own spring, should I get the aftermarket spring, or would the OME's with the say 885 springs be a better choice?

A friend of mine did the ReadyLift at the front, it looks good, but seems kinda ghetto to me...

If I do the 1.75" AAL, do I need longer rear shocks?

Thanks, and I apologize in advance if this has been answered many times in the past.

The 5100s in front and aal will work. You could use your stock springs, I did. Unless your planning on a plate bumper. And I think you only need the ext length shocks in back if
You have a 3 inch leaf pack. Check with dsm on that though.

They wouldn't hurt, I have them with my all pro 3 inch leaf pack

Or, even smoother ride, eibach/toytec coils (1.6") with 5100's set at 0.

The 5100 has better valving, and by using the eibach/toytec coils to do the lifting u wont be preloading coils.
Tru dat ^^

5100s all around, 0 setting on the front, Eibach coils for 1.6" of lift in the front and the Icon 3-leaf AAL for 1.5" lift in the rear (2" if you retain the factory overload leaf like I did). Here's a pic of that set-up with 265/70R17 tires.

I did the TSB in the back and 5100 in the front with 1.75". Very happy with the front set up, no vibration, all good. The only thing is that the hear TSB is sinking, I guess from pulling my boat this summer (2010 TRDsport 4x4).
Now I want to do something else with the hear to get more lift at the back.
Cheers.

Did any of you have to add a diff drop because of drive-line vibes? I did a small lift on my Wrangler and required a T-Case drop because it vibrated like crazy.

m.a.c.
