    Hey y'all

    just picked up a new (for me, last truck was a 20r) 07 Tacoma LB DC TRD sport 4wd stock suspension and after-market 17's, 30k miles.

    I would like to level it out and lift a touch, have seen the many options and read hours of great threads.

    Decided to go simple with 3" spacer/aal since my driving is mostly on-road with some dirt/farm road and snow driving. I haul light loads around and haven't had a problem with the stock 3 leaf yet.

    I haven't had the TSB done but i do qualify. Not sure if i should have the TSB done in addition to the aal or just go with the aal. I'm ok with the stock ride but a bit firmer is also ok. I've talked to a couple of manufacturers reps and gotten wishy washy -you could do either- answers from all.

    Would love to hear opinions from people with experience with this situation and the larger tacomas. Will the combo of leaves be too stiff and have a poor ride with light or no loads, or does the larger and heavier dc/lb soften it out?

    I know some will not like my choice of lift so i respect and consider other options also, just want whats right for my needs without breaking the bank. I've searched forums on multiple sites and haven't gotten a good answer from what i've read but please give me a link if i've totally missed something.

    Thanks for any help and patience.

    Truck looks good! Is that Pro comp AAL without the TSB and you are pleased?
