Let me know how it works out for you, I am thinking of doing the same thing. I am not sure if I want to go with a 0.85 or 1.75 setting.

Tsenekos, Do you think 1.75 would pick up the front too much without the TSB?

So would you be installing all four billys or just the front's? I have a 2002 double cab prerunner and want to level it also.

I dont know I have mine at 1.75 and I have the TSB AAL and Im just about level I think the .85 setting would be better without the AAL.

I just did the Bilstein 5100s in the front of my 08 DC at the 1.75" height and I have the rear TSB and it's about 3/4" lower in the front than the back. It's about perfect though, if you ever haul anything, and it allows for good alignment. It was easy too--just borrowed a spring compressor from autozone and it took about an hour.
