1.5" or 2" aal

Looking for a level look as i proceed w/ lifting my 07' 4x4 d/c tacoma! I plan on installing the 5100's on all corners and setting the fronts to 2.5". Which aal should I purchase...1.5" or 2"? My truck currently has the stock rake but not sure how much of one. It also has the 3 leaf pack! Thanks in advance!

Thanks neighbor! Where in Hampton do you live? Also did you attach a pic? I'm a newbie still learing the site!

I'm thinking the ToyTec or Wheeler AAL! Any preference and do you know if any payload is added?

That's good to know b/c I'll be pulling a boat in the future. Do you get any sag when the trailer is attached?

I live in the Fox Hill area! Do you know of any good mechanics that'd help me or do the lift?

So adding a 1.5 AAL in the rear means you need a 2.5 lift in front?

I'll let you know if I have the problem. From what I've been reading, the diff drop and the uca's (upper control arms) aren't necessary w/ this lift option. However their are some that are say if you want to do it rite, install new uca's!
