The first pic kind of looks like it's a little nose high but I understand pictures are sometimes misleading.

I don't mind a little rake. I just don't want it to ever look nose high.

Funny you say that because I have the "taco lean" so the passenger side sits 1/4" higher in the front so it kinda does look nose high on that side. But also note that the factory step rails tend to angle down towards the rear which to me kinda makes it have the nose high look. I looked at them before the 5100's because it drives me crazy but couldn't see any adjustment for them. I may look at them again and actually put a wrench to them and try to even them up.

Level or front end slightly higher. Can't stand rear end sitting higher. personal preference. Front end higher is my personal fave.

Kept just a little rake, Bilstein 5100's on front set to 1.75", Wheelers HD progressive AAL pack on rear. For me, it came out about right.

I noticed after putting 5100's up front @ 2.5" and doing nothing to the rear I don't have to strain to see if the light has turned green. On top of that my back doesn't hurt as much due from sitting so far forward. So I don't have to shim my seat.

Lift and level. Airbags for keeping it level with weight in it. Personally can't stand the rake.

Here is my question, my 03 DC TRD sits almost level now w/factory suspension. Only 1/2 " difference front to rear. I assume my leafs have about had it. I dont want to have to go through this shit more than once. I also dont want a whole bunch of lift. Can anybody tell me how high the rear usually sits center hub to fender so i can allow for that when buying new leafs. I have almost zero rake now. The rear leafs are at level or maybe a little past.

Rake for sure, cant really tell it in the crappy pic. I wanted rake cause when I didn't have my dakars I would bottom out with hardly nothing in the bed. Its a truck not a car.
My hub to fender measurements are 25 inches In the back and 22.5 driver (need taco lean spacer) and 23.5 passinger side front.

thanks,

Brett

Slight rake if you actually use your truck as a truck.

Seems to me that if you lift and level, then when you haul a load, you get the Bro look.
