    Pretty much as the title states (I know its speculative as not every truck is the same and has different sag in the leafs, BUT), I would like to know what would level the truck out if I am sitting around 2.5" up front with 5100 at .85 with eibach coils (Think of it as brand new from the factory). This is for a 4x4 2nd gen 2009 double cab. I have both a TSB AAL and a 2" AAL, need to know which one to have the shop install. Thanks for your help. I did a quick search, most people install the 2", but a few have stated 1.5" (KPT, and I trust that dude) I do not have the TSB leaf pack either, just the good ol 3 leafs

    Measure from the center of the hub to the fender both front and back and that will tell you which AAL to install. Leaf packs settle over time so some people may have needed the 2" and others have only needed the 1.5", depends on how much wear the truck has seen. Most likely the 1.5" will level you out, 2" will leave you with a little bit of rake (slightly less than factory).
