    For those currently running these leaf packs, are these a direct bolt-on project, or are longer shackles, hangar relocation required for install? Setup would be on a 2011 Doublecab longbed 4x4 TRD Sport with 6 inch Procomp lift. Would like to rid of lift blocks in rear and get a set of these. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Also would like to run Bilstein 5125 shocks in the rear. What length/travel/valving would be recommended for this leaf packs? Light wheeling and towing main concern while keeping it close to smooth ride as possible.

    keep in mind 5100 series shocks arent stem top. you have to have an adaptor which costs you wheel travel cuz it pushes the shock down further.

    i do recommend the 5125, however the perfect set up is the 12" travel 5160 because it has a stem top, but i have not done this yet personnaly, this is all info i have researched but i look forward to testing the 5160's out!

    It happen that I have exactly the same model like your with the same lift and the same thought - get rid of the rear bock. :D
