Bilstein 5100 + 2" AAL

Just orded a lift for my 06 Double Cab Long Box..... I got 5100's for the front... planning on setting them at 2.5" . I also got the ToyTec 2" Add-a-leaf... Is this too much for the rear?? Does anyone have this set up in their truck?? Just second guessing what i ordered... i dont want it too look dumb... pics would be a big help. I'm running 265/70R17 Mud Terrains...

I have that setup in my 04 and at first the back was a little high but the springs saged alittle and it sittes level now.

Your trucks look awesome but you guys all have 285's

Did you keep your stock rear shocks, or buy longer?
