    3" lift, full stereo system with 2 amps and sub behind the rear seat.
    I have 3 inch spacer lift in front and 1.25 blocks in back. I am now sagging in the back after 1 year and want the back to be slightly higher than the front. I also want it to ride better. Can you give me examples of what you guys have done? How hard is it to do the leafs on your own?
    Thanks Brandon.

    I was wondering the same thing. I am about to pull the trigger on those toyotec coilovers and am looking into rear lift options. aal or leafpack? Any suggestions or positives and negatives would be appreciated.

    An AAL will stiffen your ride in the back but is cheap. The progressive leaf packs work well that timmer has linked. But a full leaf pack will be your best bet. Keeps the ride nice and gives you some lift. OME makes one called the Dakar for $333 from trdparts4u.com. Or Allpro and Deaver make a full lead pack for around $600.

    You could get the suspension TSB done. It will raise the back about an inch.
    I had put 1.25 inch spacers on the front and a 1 inch block on the back and it was still slightly lower in the back. I ended up getting the suspension TSB done and now it is slightly higher in the back. Just one option.

    Will the Icon pack lift the vehicle? If so, how much.

    My front is lifted 3 inches. I need a leaf pack the will lift the rear the same.
