    Yea I have rear tsb tires are factory 245s (I can hardly wait till they wear out to get 265s ) it looks better than the pics show. I cant beleve how good it rides. Even the wife thinks it rides better,and she thought it was dumb to do it. But hey, I think it's dumb when she cuts her hair shorter. you will love the 5100s

    Rear TSB AAL or Rear TSB 4 leaf spring pack? I have the 3 leaf past getting TSB pack crap so I'll have 3 leaf + TT AAL. The reason I ask is if you have 4 leaf pack + AAL then the back of yours will be higher than mine. Did you go 1.75 or 2.x in the front? Runnin/rubbin 285/60/18 Nitto TGs...

    that should be perfect with the aal lots of guys on here have that setup I have about 3/4" rake now but last night I pulled my 8' trailer with 4 wheeler and it was a bit nose up so I like some rake. It mesures 37" in rear 36 1/4" in front with factory 245 tires.

    I think if you did not get the rear tsb, you might should have gotten the reg 2"aal from toytec? The tsb aal is for trucks with the 4 pack tsb springs.

    I got the 1.5 AAL that goes on either nonTSB or TSB leaf packs. This one here....

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

    I went with 1.5 since the front wheel wells are 35.5 off the ground & the rears are 37.75. So 2.25 up front will be 37.75 & 1.5 out back should make it 39.25 & if the AAL loses about .5 after settling like others have observed then it'll end up being 38.75 out back which should give me about 1 inch rake in front...hopefully.

    Front 5100's @2.5", Rear 5125's with AAL. Light Racing UCA's, Factory hood deflector, Sirius Sportster 5, TRD air filter, Weathertech's f&r, "Hello Kitty" steering wheel cover.
    Nice job,truck looks great.I added the front 5100's a couple of weeks ago set at 2.5.In the rear I am at 4 leaves and added a Toytec 1.5" spacer and am still running my stock rear TRD Bilstiens.When installed,the mechanic said I'd better get new rear shocks because mine were extended pretty far.There is an expansion joint on a bridge that I hit every morning that throws my rear end up and I'm topping out the rear shocks....Am I to understand that the rear 5100's will give me an additional 1" of travel?.....Anyone know how much for just the rears from DSMS?When I bought my fronts from them I didn't have the dough for all 4 and now I can't seem to find a price on just the rears.
