    Ok, so I recently purchased a 2009 tacoma double cab trd, and after reading al lot on this forum I found the tsb for the rear springs.

    I contacted customer care and then my local dealer and got it approved! They will be calling me when the parts are in.

    So.... the question is, what should i set the new 5100's at when i buy them? and what tire and wheel combo looks the best with the new found height?

    Any pictures or suggestions would be helpful.

    The TSB settled down to about 1 inch of lift to the rear.
    So hense i set the billys at .85. keeps things close to stock.
    Some have set at 1.75, but i think they look nose high.

    on my last taco i set the 5100s at 1.75 and its pretty much level. if i did it again i would do the 0.85 so i would still have a positive rake.

    I'd stick with the lowest setting. It was all that was needed to level my truck. You are going to love the 5100's. The combination of the leaf spring TSB and shocks made a very noticable improvement in ride quality for my daily driver. I also think there was a slight improvement to the steering feel and overall handling.
