I've dug around a bit and can't find anyone who's posted a thread on the long term effects of lifting. If there is something, can someone post it? I'll clear this thread out quickly.
I'm not looking for a full on lift like most are - just to level out while maintaining, or improving ride quality. Here's what I'm thinking:
Bilstein 5100's set to 0
OME 883's (for 1.5-1.75")
(Stock 2013 4 spring SR5 leafs already on truck) Might need to add a .75 or 1" rear block? Not wanting an AAL, considering at .75 that half of the AAL's input is simply from its thickness.
Wheels/Tires: Stock O/R 16" wheels, or if I can get my paws on them - TRD sport, or FJ wheels. 245/75/R16 or R17 BFG AT/KO's, or comparable model. Since its such a small circumference differential between the 245/75/R16's and the 265/70/R16's, I don't care much, and I'd actually prefer the skinnier tires for snow and lower rolling resistance. Would love to hear thoughts on this too.
I'm wondering if anyone has had issues with CV's wearing out quickly, or driveline vibes being difficult to get rid of? Does anyone have personal experience with the 883's on the truck - and the lift height? I've found a lot of references to them on the forums, but it seems to go back and forth. I'm only looking to go up 1.5".
I've heard enough about the negatives to just cranking up the billies.
