06 TRD Access Cab, Stock Suspension.
I just got the truck with 133k on it. I'm pretty new to truck suspension (had a wrx before the taco).
I'm thinking I will need new leafs soon. I also would like to lift the truck a little bit in the future (2-3").
My main question is instead of getting OEM leafs, could I get some leafs with a little bit of lift? And eventually down the road get Bilstein 5100s for the front.
For example, if I get Bilsteins later on, how much lift would I want out of the rear leafs to have the truck be level with the 5100s?
Also, I would rather not have to get new upper or lower control arms. I have heard you don't need them if you stay under 3" of lift.
