    A few questions. With the stock suspension, what setting on the 5100 would bring the truck to a level setup? Also, how much of a difference in rear height is there with the leaf spring tsb installed? I'm looking to level my truck and get a little bigger tires 265/70-17. I appreciate any advice you, the experts, can provide.

    getting there....
    with the rear tsb springs installed........it depends really, but you can prolly get 1.5 to 2 inches from them, but they will settle some. on the 1.75 setting on the 5100's, you'll be good and level, if you have the tsb springs. on the stock springs......either the .85 setting,or the one right up from it..

    I just had the TSB done on Tuesday and it raised the rear 1.5 inches but I expect it to settle a little. On Friday I installed 5100's all round and set the front at 1.75. After install I measured and it was almost level. Front left was 1/2 inch lower (Tacoma lean:D) and front right was 1/4 inch. The ride is a little firmer which is what I wanted, I thought the stock ride was a little soft and when I had a load in the back or was towing the back bottomed out. Hope this helps!

    No vibes but I do feel the bumps more. I don't mind though, it feels more like a truck then it did before.

    Thanks. Everything else is stock. I might do new UCA's in the future but as of right now I haven't seen the need for them.
