    The title pretty much says it.

    I'm planning to lift my truck soon (hopefully) and am trying to plan out each option. For Clarification, I plan to go with the ToyTec Ultimate Lift at standard setting (I believe 2.5-3"). I know that the 1.5" AAL is suggested for TSB trucks. And, I do like the level look. HOWEVER, I really fear what it will look like with a decent load in the back (i.e. a 4-600lbs of 4-wheeling gear).

    Personally, if it won't adversely affect my truck or ride and prevent the possible @$$-drag appearance, I'm wondering if it would make sense to go for the 2" AAL instead, especially if the TSB is likely to sag substantially in the immediate future.

    Thoughts?

    Updated my first post to reflect my lift preference.

    ToyTec Ultimate at standard settings (2.5-3" of lift).

    What are your pre lift measurements? I went with the 2" AAL and with a 400lb load in the back it's about 0.5" higher in the back. I like the way my truck looks unloaded as well...

    That's the problem, I've not yet had the TSB done. I was planning to have it done when I order the Lift. That way, I can install the lift immediately afterward. That's where my question comes in, do I order the 1.5" or 2" AAL?

    Essentially, I'm wondering if there are any serious contraindications to placing he 2" AAL over top of the TSB springs? Too much angle on the Drive Shaft? Improper fitment?

    If your are for sure getting the TSB done, then get the 1.5" TSB AAL. If you get the TSB, plus a 2" AAL your ass end will be too high in my opinion.
