    I have a 2012 4x4 DCLB Sport. I recently installed LR UCAs, 5100's with 885x at the 0 setting and acheived ~2" inches of lift. The truck has the factory 4 leaf springs in the rear so it sits dead level right now. I was hoping to get more lift with this setup without preloading the springs.

    Should I add a top spacer or preload to the .85 setting? (shooting for 2.5-2.75" of lift)

    I plan on using a block in the rear to match the front.

    thanks!

    I'd just do the 13mm plate from Wheelers. It should get you 3/4 - 7/8"... and it's cheaper than the 10mm plate <--:crazy:

    True but he is adding less than an inch to the front.

    Personally, I'd leave the rear alone.

    Oh, I misread. I thought he was getting the front set and then going to adjust the rear with blocks. I missed the part about it being level now. :eek:

    Blocks under 1" wouldn't really have any negative impact.

    Thanks for the input!

    Looks like ill go with the top spacers.. hopefully I don’t need to compensate for the "taco lean".

    I thought about the AAL but I don't need much lift. I will probably run .5" blocks in the rear or just leave it alone as Ben suggested.
