    Just orded a lift for my 06 Double Cab Long Box..... I got 5100's for the front... planning on setting them at 2.5" . I also got the ToyTec 2" Add-a-leaf... Is this too much for the rear?? Does anyone have this set up in their truck?? Just second guessing what i ordered... i dont want it too look dumb... pics would be a big help. I'm running 265/70R17 Mud Terrains...

    5100's all the way around. Front set at .85. Camburg Spindles. Camburg Uniball 1.25 UCA's. Total Chaos LCA skid plates. Custom Deaver 10 pack rear leaf spring. BFG AT KO's 285/70/17, Weathertech floor liners, Wet Okoles. Midland CB/PA, Firestick.
    I went with the 5100 at 2.5 and a 1" lift in the rear to level it. Looks great!

    check my build thread. I have that exact setup. As you can see the rear was a little taller at first, but then it settled and now sits right imo.

    and i'm now running 285/65-18's with a lot of trimming

    Got the setup you have, and I like it. Like Mx stated...the rear is higher...havent seen it settle yet...but I've only had it for a week.

    My stock leaf pack was horribad (bowed the wrong way), so my AAL's are taking a lot of the weight. I think thats why they settled so fast.

    5100s set at 2.5 up front. Icon progressive 3 leaf in rear. Was supposed to be a 1.5" but right now it's about 2 1/4 higher in the rear than it was. Hasn't settled in 3 weeks but I'm expecting it to come down some.
