    I just got my front bilsteins today and have been researching for the past couple of day but no success. All I see is 1.75 in the front with either TSB's or AAL's. I haven't come across my set up yet

    I have a Double Cab Long Bed

    If I set the front at 1.75 and leave the rear stock will I be sitting nose high or level?

    Also will 285/70R17's fit with some trimming?

    Bump and *feeling stupid* question... I keep seeing this "TSB in the rear" reference, is this something other than a "Toyota Service Bulletin"?

    I have the front set at 1.75 with stock rear. It has a nice rake. Front is about an inch lower. I'll get a picture tomorrow
