    My plan........ to install 5100's on all four corners of my 4X4 DC LB and have the TSB leaf pack done.

    I'm looking to set the front to 2.5 and I've purchased the ToyTec TSB AAL for an additional 1.5" in the rear. Along with the ToyTec diff drop

    I'm going to be installing a set of FJ TRD 16"s and I'd like to know if I should wrap them in 265/75's or 285/75's

    If I choose the latter will I have UCA issues if so I'd rather stay with the 265's

    I have yet to hear that you have to put a spacer to level it out.

    Some people have done this if the truck leans more than 1/2".

    I've never noticed a lean on my truck, That's what had me curious about said spacer

    If its stock, you shouldnt have any lean. Aftermarket springs need an slight preload on the driver side to account for the extra weight.

    Toytec sells a 1/4" spacer for the drivers side, but like Chris said, people use it with aftermarket springs.

    When you change your shocks to the 5100's mark the springs left and right. Don't swap sides.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    When I installed my AAL's in the rear a few weeks ago I measured the height from fender to ground on all 4 corners of my truck..... turned out it leaned 1/4" to the passenger side. That was with a full tank of gas too.

    ^^ was that with stock TRD coils or Aftermarket. I'm staying with the stock TRD coils.
