    The aal's will stiffen it up a little but don't expect much, do u have the TSB thing done that 2nd genners get done under warrenty i believe? The bilstein adjustables is a decent front lift from what i've heard, but i love my sway-a-away coilovers!

    jason1kyle, I'm almost sure that your 08 sr5 is eligible for the tsb. Which includes a 4-pack leaf spring, 4 shocks and an alignment. Definitely search for the tsb info. Seems like you just need to buy and install the 5100's then send truck to Toyota for the replacement leaf pack and alignment. Good luck. wmb67

    yeah i called the dealership today and they said that they had to run a test on my truck to see if my truck qualified but i'm assuming i do cause the rear shocks dont hold much at all
