pro comps any day.
edit: not a fan of the center caps though. I'd pass on them.

The raptors are a little flashy for me but they are unique, alot of tacomas have the pro comps. I would go with the raptors for that reason

And a question...

I am looking to level my truck out, I've read that I should get bilstein 5100 and set them at 1.75 and then call the dealership and say my truck is bottoming out with a heavy load in order to get the rear TSB.. is this right?

or can i level it out just by the bilstein 5100 and setting them at .85

I have the 7089s and like them. A lot of people on this site have them, but I've never personally seen them on anyone's truck where I live. Both wheels look good, but I like simple on a truck.

I really like the way your truck looks! Did you use bilstiens 5100s or what?

Theres no guarantee that the dealership will give you the tsb leafs. How many miles on your truck and what year is it?

Any idea of what I should say?

Any recommendations(brand/price) for adding a leaf?

Thanks for all the help btw

joneill03 04-11-2013 11:43 AM

You're outside the factory warranty so they probably will tell you to pound sand unless you have a good relationship with your service advisor, who may still tell you to pound sand. If you have the extended warranty I'm not sure if that would cover you. You can get an add a leaf from toytec fairly cheap and they are fairly easy to install. Probably less headache than trying to battle the dealer.

evanmb31 04-11-2013 11:58 AM

X2 on the AAL from toytec, probably the cheapest option after blocks which will just make your leafs worse. I have heard a better option would be wheelers 3 leaf AAL, which also comes in a HD version if you want a little extra capacity for hauling. Next step up would be a new complete leaf pack, old man emu dakars are nice for about 3" of lift, ironman makes a leaf pack for about 2" of lift. All pro makes leaf packs for 3+" or alcan and deaver make some nice $$$ leaf packs.
Or skip all that, leave the rear alone and set your 5100s to .85". I am guessing at 1.75" you would either be perfectly level or a hair higher in the front, depending on how much your stock leaf springs have sagged

so .85 without adding a leaf pack and 1.75 if i add a leaf pack?

Thats just a guess really. Park on a level surface and take some measurements, you can even throw your bottle jack under the frame up front, take a measurement, jack the truck up exactly .85" and 1.75" and see how it looks

Here is mine with the Procomps

As far as your lift goes. I had my 5100's set at 1.75 with the 3 leaf pack and it sat level. There are some pics in my build thread of it. I now have maxtrac spindles and the 5100's at .85 with a Dakar leaf pack.

Yes for the 2012+ TRD offroad package it is 3 leafs. The TRD sport package for 2012+ has 4 leafs.

S.KENNY 04-11-2013 06:43 PM
