    Have you measured the front and back to see the height difference?

    i have not measured the front and back, there is an obvious rake to the truck which is what i wanted.

    it rides really good, better than stock. i am still using the stock TRD billys in the back just because i wanted to hurry up and get the lift on, im in no rush to get new rears, but will jump on them if i see a decent deal, looking for some remote resi's

    I was thinking about this, but the overload leaf doesn't kick in until there is a heavy load on the truck, so it shouldn't effect the ride, I don't think.

    i left it in for the .5" of lift it gives just by being there, and i think it rides great.
