    Do dents and scratches count?
    Can anyone tell me the difference in ride hight between a DCSB SR5, and a DCSB TRD O/R?

    I am thinking of installing a leveling kit on my 2014 SR5 and have been reading of the front diff vibe woes that some are reporting. I know it won't affect my rig until I get some miles on as the drivers needle bearings have to be worn before this starts.

    I was just hoping to level my rig and as I have not seen any stockers complaining of front vibes, I was thinking I would just bring it up to the hight of a stock TRD O/R.

    If you are wanting to do the front to level it get 5100's set at .85 no vib issues. If you are wanting to do the rear as well go with billies at 1.75" and a 1.5" progressive leaf pack no vibs. Blocks and AAL 2" or larger generally give you the vibs anything less shouldn't be noticeable.

    I don't think there is a height difference between the SR5 or TRD models anyway so it wouldn't matter. The Baja sits a little higher in the front but the regular O/R and Sport are the same as the SR5.

    Ok so no matter what I will be going above stock hight. Ive done the whole lifted thing in years past with jeeps. Not looking to do that. I just am not a fan of the nose down look. Maybe just 5100's up front set real low and see how things go from their.

    Thanks for the replies guys!

    Edit: or just spacers…..

    NO SPACERS! lol For about the same money you can get 5100s and have a much better experience.
