    agreed, if you are going to be hauling a lot, your nose might be high at 2.5 and a dirtbike. Also at 1.75 and the tsb or aal, the rear will settle after a few weeks or months to make it just about level.

    Why not go with OME 884's/5100's @ zero. Or, stay on the cheap and use stock TRD billies.

    Lift with be about the same but the ride will be better.

    1.75 with tsb is what I want to do. I think the ride quality would be better than at 2.5 with aal.
