    hi guys, I just installed my 5100s last week on all 4 corners with the toytec AAL for TSB and the result was not what I expected, the ride quality is very good, a lot better than stock ride quality. What I', concerning is the look of it, it is NOT level at all, may be it just me but you guys can look at the pictures and tell me is it level or not, I think it is nose down. Can any one tell me what I can do to make it level, I don't want to go above 3 inches because to what I know if you go above 3 inches there is a lot of part needs to be replace. Thanks guys for looking, comments and inputs are welcome

    wat?
    the AAL will settle slightly, but did you use a 1.5" or 2" AAL?

    It will settle a little bit. My rear was really high when I first installed my 2" AAL. I have the same setup.

    One thing to keep in mind is that the rear wheel wells are cut a little higher than the front to accomodate for hauling heavy loads.

    other people on here have the same setup and they're level, so i imagine yours should settle in no time like others have said.

    TSB gives you about 1" lift. The Toytec TSB AAL gives 1.5".

    So you have 2.5" in the rear, 2.5" in the front....why are you surprised that you have the same amount of rake as you did stock? :confused:

    The folks who run 2.5" up front, 1.5" rear to be level do not have the TSB.

    I don't know why you said that but it is my truck and I know how many leaf are on my truck, there are a total of five now. First was the original 3 leafs when I purchase the truck, then come the TSB which added another leaf make it 4 leafs and I just added the one from toytec which make it five leafs total. As per Chris4x4 DYI, you can see the total of 5 leafs in his pictorial illustration.

    He understands you have 5 leafs but what he's saying is that you need to let that pack have time to settle and then some more time for the AAL to settle as well.

    My TSB springs took a week to settle to where they are now.

    I've got the same truck and I had the same problem. Set the 5100s at 2.5, did the TSB, added a 1.5 AAL. Ride was great but too high in rear. Took the AAL off and now I've got the look I like and still rides great. You might want to give it a try.
