    Truck info:
    I have a 06 4x4 double cab automatic with 16 inch wheels running BFG’s and it’s not a TRD and does not have the TSB AAL done. So that being said I just recently put on stock TRD billstein shocks on and now I just ordered a ToyTec 3 inch lift with 884 coils\AAL to run on my stock billstien’s.

    Now I have a question….
    The toytec AAL will give me 3 leafs + 1 over load in the rear which is find but I’m still with out the TSB leaf.

    Question time:

    When I put the 884 coils in should I leave out the .5 spacer on top of the coil reason I say this is because remember I don’t have the rear TSB leaf so I’m not going to gain a full 3 inch lift in the rear like most and I don’t want the front higher than the rear. My theory is I think by leaving the .5 spacer out I’ll end up with a level truck however once the 884 coils sag a bit I’ll end up with the stock rake again.

    So give me your feedback or theory or even better if you have a non TRD truck and put a lift in it without doing the TSB post a picture and tell me what your lift is.


    PS: I’m not eligible for the TSB ALL because my 06 has 91000 miles on it. No Warranty for me.

    Excuse my ignorance as I didn't even read the whole post. Shouldn't you be using the 885's on the double cab?

    People have been using the AAL with the coil and spacer up front even before the TSB came out. You'll be fine using both.

    And yes, you should have ordered the 885.

    +1 on the 885's for a DC...but it might still work out.

    Depending on where you got your OME springs and how long ago- They may or may not sag a fair bit and folks have had mixed results with how much lift they gained- So I would go without the spacer and add it in if need be....That's the route I'm going. Once I get to my install.

    You probably want to think about some OME shocks...The extended stoke will work better with the lift.
