I believe that to be correct. The "trim packer" is an OME part designed to nest on the OME spring perch.

No worries, just use a top plate spacer (1/4") to clean up any Taco lean.

Installed the correct 1.5 AAL for TSB yesterday. I also had all the front suspension parts on hand, so did it too. You'll notice there is plenty of space between the retainer and AAL. You may also see the marks made on the leaf pack from running the wrong aal for a few days.

Front - 23.5 dvr and passenger
Rear - 24.5 dvr and passenger

No lean, but tank is near empty. I had bought a trim packer before discovering it was for OME shocks only. I am not doing any correction to the front.

Front is 5100 set at 0 with 885x
Rear TSB leaf pack, no blocks, long version 5100

My measurements after lift (and after settling):

Front: 22-1/4"
Rear: 23-1/2"

I guess having a 4x4 and a cap makes a pretty big difference.

(I'm kind of curious as to what your current non-TSB AAL + TSB pack dimension is, as well.)
what "database" and where can we access it? i've been searching and reading threads forever looking for a bunch of measurements. i want to make some adjustments to mine but can't find where i wrote my pre-lift measurements anywhere, and i want some reference before i start taking stuff apart.

Ah. good idea. i cut mine but can't remember if i filed the edges.

how much did your non-TSB AAL raise your TSB'd rear? I swear mine went up a full 3" but can't find my pre lift measurements. i was hoping it would settle more than it has (after 1000's miles with full load).

knickerbocker - the rear ended up right at 2" after settling.

thanks!

that's crazy. I'm currently at 23" front and 25" rear, also with 4x4 and fiberglass shell. So we both have trimmed non-TSB AAL on TSB spring packs, yet 1.5" difference. I wonder why.

toytec. it's old, though. maybe 4 or 5 years old. perhaps they've changed something since?
