    My truck is a 2011 4x4 4 door sb with a camper shell with tsb leaf springs and i currently have a rake. i want to level the truck out but not sure if i should go .85 or 1.75 because i feel the shell may require less lift to level the truck out. any opinions?

    X2. But just take a tape measure to the front fender and us that to get some kind of idea where the truck will sit after installing the 5100's. What size AAL is it...1.5"...2"? If its a 2" AAL, most people lift to 2.5"s but the back is normally a little higher still but with your camper shell it might sit just level.

    Won't the TSB springs settle with wear?

    I actually like a little rake. Last thing I want is squatting when I put a load on the back end.

    For 1/2", just go with top plate spacers up front. The 1/4" thick spacer will do the trick.
