TSB & Aftermarket lift

so i need to take my truck in for the tsb but would still like a lift as well do i

1) get the tsb done
2) get the lift done before the tsb
3) get the tsb then the lift
4) tsb only

looking for a 3" lift possibly the toytec just wondering what everyone else out there has done or will be doing. Or is there a better/ different kit thats works better with the tsb.

Thanks
SX

Yeah, Toyota might try to give you some crap about having the lift, so I'd wait until after the lift.

my 5100's will be here soon. i was hoping to be able to just use the shocks and the tsb but it looks like i'm gonna have to add blocks to the back. do you think i can get away with just a 1" block in the rear?

the 5100s are adjustable. Are you planning on setting them at their max? If you set them around 1-1.5 in that will probably level it out.

i was hoping to set them at 2.5 but i may set them at 1.75 then put a block on the back and re-adjust the front to 2.5. i was hoping i could set them at max and be level but it doesnt look like that will work

are u wanting a completely level look? if so, u should be able to do the tsb and get the 5100's set on 2.5" and it will look pretty damn level. the front might be up about 1/4-1/2". i went overboard w/ 2" blocks in the back...but it does make sense for going offroad and now i have a lil less to worry about hitting rocks under the cab area...eventhough i'll have those sliders on by then

TSB and then the lift !!! Check my pic. out..... I am running a 3'' Toytec OME 884's with TSB and 1.5'' block.( tires and wheels are soon) Not sure if i like the 884's, to me it looks like you get a little more lift out of the spacer puck then the full spring??? Could just be me.......ive got use to looking at the lift.

My kit is a Toytec, part #OME3-05-bk. Also i ordered the 1'' diff. drop kit. You need to go with the 885's coils to get a full 3'' lift on the dbl. cab. If you have got the TSB done, go with the 1.5 block kit (same price). If i had to do it over i would have just went with the Toytec 3'' puk spacer. The reason i say that is about four weeks after install it looks like my OME springs have started a sag alittle. If you are looking for a factory ride, OME springs are the way to go!!!!

I like to have a little bit of a raked look. i think i'm gonna go for 1.75 up front with no blocks in the back. I think it will be level and not raked like i want but oh well. i have completely decided against blocks. i have heard too many negative things. i'll just do the 1.75 and stick with taht until the trucks paid off, then put on a 6 inch or something.
