Might as well keep the spacers if your going to pre-load the coils again!

Best thing to do is replace the coils with a longer one (Toytec or OME) and set the 5100 as low as possible to achieve your desired lift/ride!

Having run spacers and toytecs previously.....my vote is just do it right and get some legit coilovers! They ride UNBELIEVABLE, even on road man, no shit! These trucks should have just come with some Fox's or Icon's as they ride way smoother than any shock Toyota could come up with!

For as much as you'd pay for new springs and shocks, might as well spend a little more and get coilovers that were designed to do the job we're asking of these trucks! No shit....pot holes, speed bumps and uneven surfaces in the road just disappear with a quality coilover and Icon's in particular get softer with speed so hwy driving on ugly ass roads become a dream....don't even get me going on off-road conditions.....

Good luck brother!

^^ Ya, a single aal will be stiffer and better suited for weight while a progressive 3 leaf aal will be smoother/softer in general and more "offroad" specific!

In my experience aal suck as I'be been through two packs and don't beat my truck THAT hard, lol! Replacing the leafs with a new pack is the best route!

Options:

Deavers - 1-1.5" lift, soft and smooth but will sag with time and wont carry weight!

OME Dakars - Great leafs but with 2 overloads they won't do well in speed conditions and/or speed bumps will rock your ass (not a good combo with a smooth front end)...ideal for expedition rigs and flex!

All Pro - The standards give 2.5-3" lift and are a GREAT all around leaf pack.....tons of flex and match the smoothness of the front end coilovers to the T! The AP expos are the same just 20% increased spring rate to handle 300+lbs of gear! Will give 4" of lift unloaded but loaded will be similar to the standards! With a high end 2.5" rear shock and good bump stops these leafs could keep up with SUA trucks (if tuned right)!
