    I just ordered my LR UCA's and extended strut mount studs just in case. I currently have the 1/4 spacer on drivers side with 510@.85+eibachs. Truck currently has what seems to be stock rake. So I'm debating on adding the .5 spacer to driver side and 1/4 spacer to passenger side along w/ 5100's@.85 and eibachss to give me just about 3". I've got the 1.5 TSB AAL in the rear. I know a couple folks run this setup. What you think?? Any associated problems??

    I have a similar problem with the stock rake. Billy's @2.5 w/toytec 1.5 AAL and the rear is ~1.75" higher. If you do a search for "1/4 spacer" you'll find a few guys using that setup (not many though), and nobody really had any problems. Post pics once you get everything put on. If you end up getting 3" I'll go with the same setup.

    I am going to be running a very similar setup! I am going with the .5 top plate spacer on driver and passenger with 5100's @.85 w/ eibachs. I also have the 1.5 TSB AAL.

    From what the guys at Toytec tell me - this is all I need. I set up the install appointment for Monday. Is there anything I am missing / need for them to install?

    I'm running 265/70/17's and I like the look, as well as the savings on gas! It will look great.

    How bad is the rear sag with a load in the bed?

    What are the longer studs that you speak of? Sorry I am new to lifts!

    The dealership said that I will be ok with my current UCA's. Is this possible or not the case?

    Thanks for the help!

    The toytec AAL is pretty stiff, so when I haul my quad it's ~1.0" of sag. This is the 1.5" AAL with stock 3 leaf springs (non TSB).
