    I have a 2019 long bed double cab.
    After reading all your posts, I think I know what i want. I want a leveled look.
    5100's all around set at 0 with 885 coils. This should give me 1.5? up front correct?
    In the rear, I should put a AAL to level it?
    Will I need anything else? I shouldn't need any UCA I hope.
    Any advice?

    Emailed Marie @ Headstrong and could not agree more with all the wonderful things said about her/the company I've read on this thread so I will be giving them my business.

    That being said, it has taken me ~2 days to get through every post on this thread so forgive me if I'm not able to tag specific folks regarding my questions.

    About me/truck:
    I have a '17 SR5 DCLB 4wd on 265/75/16s with a camper top. I don't do anything more than dirt roads and I pretty much baby this truck. However, I bottom out in the rear more often than I'd like and I blame it on the weight of the topper. I don't foresee ever putting 285s on it but never say never!

    Goals:
    I know I'm going the route of 5100s front & back and a single AAL to counter the slight sag and combat the bottoming out. Last Tacoma ('99 ext cab) I threw an AAL on it and didn't do anything up front but didn't like the butt in the air look--want to avoid that so will do something to the front on this truck. Since the front is purely aesthetics for me, I'd like to avoid the cost of replacing the UCAs so I'm inclined to go 887s. But since the springs will settle ~1/2" should I consider the 888s? I know every truck has its own nuances and regardless whether I go with 887 or 888s I'm planning to keep struts @ 0".

    I've seen several on here with essentially identical lifts and like the look. To those folks: what are you thoughts? Regrets? Recommendations/advice? Seems like the thread is split on the needle bearing issue so I'm leaning towards doing that while shes on stands. Should I go ahead and get a diff drop and carrier bearing spacer? I'm not looking to spend 1500k on parts but also don't want to spend $750 only to get nickel & dimed for "shouldas" afterwards.

    Keep the struts at zero and throw a 1/4” top plate spacer to make up for the settling. Get a clam shell bushing and ditch the diff drop you don't need it.

    Here is my 17 OR. 1" rear spacer plus AAL in rear. 5100's up front on stock setting and 2" lift spacer. Had about the same front height before with the 5100's on 4th setting but it was way too stiff for me. Much smoother now. SPC uca's and nowhere even close to rubbing anywhere with Duratrac 285/75/16 spaced 1" on the stock wheels. No cab mount chop for me. 20191213_100938.jpg20191213_100924.jpg 20191213_100903.jpg

    Road is flat, no incline so the rear looks taller. Level the curb to get an idea of rake.

    Another angle

    5100s front and rear
    887s settled after a year
    3 progressive AAL with overload left in.
    SPC UCAs
    CMC
    285 Nitto tires on the 4runner TRD Pro wheels.

    2 inches from stock, maintains factory rake.

    Very happy with it.

    33"s no CMC AND you have mudguards with no rubbing. What sorcery is this?

    Anyways after looking for a while I decided to go with a 2/1 spacer lift on SCS BR6 17x8.5 -10 265/70/17

    Cant wait, not much pictures of black br6 on cement tacos
