Bilstein 5100 settings without rear TSB

Folks, I have a 2005 Taco Access Cab 4x4 with TRD Coils and I am getting Bilstein 5100s (front and rear) soon from DSMS. My truck had already passed the "mile marker" to allow the stealership to comp me a TSB on the rear. My question is what settings do I need to set the Billy's so that my truck is relatively level. I have a three leaf system and don't anticipate getting a 4th rear leaf any time soon. Please let me know so that I can get my truck done right the first time. Thanks.

You should be pretty close to level at the .85 setting. But def take some measurements first.

If Dawg isn't interested, in the TSB packs I would be.
Let me know

A whole bunch of us are waiting for the billys to be stocked at DSMS...I like the "soon" part in your first post. Good luck with the install. I'll be doing the TSB and setting the fronts at .85 w/ the Eibach coils sitting in my office. Don't forget to install the 1/4" spacer to correct the Taco Lean.
