    It would probably rake it a 1" or 1.5". But I dont think it would look that bad.

    toyota will replace your rear springs....3 pack to a 4 pack, if you complain of a harsh ride. im not sure if they have added 08's to the tsb list or not, but you can always print out the tsb and take it in and see what they say. tell them you bottom out with not too much weight in the bed.

    you need to print the tsb for the "harsh ride", and them fixing it isnt guaranteed. you may need to put some weight in the bed to prove it to them. hopefully though...they will not argue about it.

    If you have not had the TSB done and you add the AAL for trucks without the TSB you will be effectively adding a 2" lift to the rear.

    http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pa...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

    Depending on where your truck sits right now, I am guessing that adding the AAL will give you back some rake. Probably something similar to stock where the rear is 1" higher than the front. I would say go for it. You can always take the AAL out if you are not happy with it. (It is not a very difficult job)

    I think so....:( but you can always buy and AAL for pretty cheap :)
