    Quick question from y'all. I am about to order front 5100's for my 2004 prerunner as well as a add a leaf. My question is, with stock rear shocks and the add a leaf, will the ride suffer? Or is my thinking of doing stock rears just ridiculous?
    Appreciate your help!

    I have a second gen and did the same thing. The rear suspension was a little soft and the AAL seemed to balance the ride between the front/rear suspension. GL

    Thats cool, if your ever home and want to come to one of our meets check out my signature. We should be having one in the next month or so.

    Do the AAL w/ the 5100's in the front. It will give your truck a whole new stance. The ride in my truck actually got better b/c I wasn't bottoming out all the time.

    Yea, overextending the stock shocks was one of my concerns. I'll just pony up the dough to be safe and get the billies all the way around.
