    I have the TSB rear springs and my billys with stock springs are set at 0.75 ( the middle setting) which gives the truck just a little rake so I think you should be right about level.

    By middle setting you mean 1.75? From what I've been told that at 1.75 you'll need the rear tsb or an aal and that it will sag bad in the rear with the least little load. I'm wanting to do mine.

    It's all good.
    As was mentioned previously, the middle (1") setting will likely be the best one to level a 1st Gen with stock springs. Note that our only other options are no lift and 2.5", neither of which is likey to level the truck.
