Judge my 2013 lift

Ok I understand there are a ton of people that post about there lifts and look for oppinions without searching, but i am posting with minor knowledge after my searches . Im looking to get a little bit of lift but not a ton, because money does not grow on trees. Im leaning towards billies set at 1.75" and a rear 1.5" toytec aal. I am not planning on buying springs at the moment. I have also read that this should sit level; which is what I am shooting for. I do not have the spring tsb because this is a 2013 and wont be able to get it any time soon. If you guys have any suggestions, criticism, or comments, I would very much appreciate it

With the billies at 1.75 and the aal you will have a slight rake. Also I notice you have a trd offroad if you use your stock coils expect a stiffer ride...

What do you guys mean by rake? Like a slight lower in the front causing a lean? or a lean in the back like a bro lift?

Put them at 2.5 in the front and when it settles it will be level. Your lift idea is good and the choice of parts is also good

Is it really noticeable? I didn't really notice it on your build. Also, I didn't want to set them at 2.5 because i heard the infamous Tacoma rattle will start, and I don't wont to wear down the parts so quickly.

I put mine at 2.5 with a bone stock rear end and it is almost perfectly level, I have had zero rattle, it rides better on and off road and I couldn't be happier with my 5100's. Two of my buddies with 2nd gen dc 4x4s have had the same results pure smiles. You really arent changing much as far as geometry goes so the wear on parts is negligible IMHO

hmmm, I guess that depends on the height of your back to your front for it to be leveled. Mine was about 1/2 an inch lower in the front than in the back. Yours would probably also look a little more level because you have the sport, which has the 1 extra leaf, therefore taller in the back by a little. Anyway, thanks for all the help guys. I think im going to get this setup and sort of build around like the majority of people here

Measure your center hub to fender on front and rear and then decide what you want to lift. 1.75" in the front should make it level. or 2.5" in the front and a 1.5" AAL in the rear will also be level.

Read my write-ups...it is a much better ride than stock.

This is 1.75" in the front and 4 factory leafs in the rear

Some pics and info to help you.

Mine are set at 1.75 with only the rear leaf tsb which gave about 3/4" in the rear. Looks level for the most part, sometimes I think it's a tad nose high though.



My truck does have the "Taco lean" so the passenger side front sits 1/4" higher and imo that side looks nose high while the drivers side looks perfectly level.

No, it's not noticeable at all. It has less rake than stock.
