Suspension Upgrade Question?

I have a '13 stock PreRunner and am not interested in lifting the truck, but I am curious about the 5100's for the rear. How do they give you a better ride? Is it the valving or longer travel.....? Also does anyone make a more progressive multi leaf spring pack (aka. alot more leafs?). Would this give more load capacity and still ride better than stock with maybe and inch of lift or so?

The valving give it a better ride IMO

They have better leaf packs out there, But if you only want 1 inch of lift, you will have to use an aal.

dakar leaf packs are great, but they give more of a lift than 1 inch

They absorb better than the stock, as for the leaf pack, the creme de la creme would be a custom pack from Alcan, not cheap but probably the best

How about some opinions on:longer stainless steel brake lines,
bump stops,
u-bolt flip kits,
shackle flip kits and anything I missed.
I will be getting bilstein 5100's all the way around and a custom leaf pack but with little to no lift, I figure the shackle kit and or the leaf pack will be around 1 inch or so don't want to go much higher.

You won't need longer brake lines if you plan on keeping the stock height and suspension travel.

Why would he need to flip the u-bolts?

He will probably need longer ones anyways and having new ones is always recommended.
