    I know yall don't recommend coil spacers but i was wondering if i should purchase a 2 in. or 2.5 in. spacer from toytec? Will the bigger one make my rear sag or not?

    Of course. The higher the front is, the lower the back will be in comparison to the front.

    I bought the 2in spacers then the 1in AAL.for the rear. Havent installed the rear yet because the sag isnt that much. Still deciding if im even going to. Go through toytec though. Great people.

    Here is a side view. Cant tell that much because of the yard. But you can tell from the fender clearence above the wheels

    Ah, in that case, yes, it will make a difference. A 2" won't be level but will be close. 2.5" will be nowhere near level. My front sits .5" higher than the rear with 5100's at only 1.75".

    No really.......I had spacers on the truck when I bought it. Give it time the springs will go downhill fast! You think it rides nice now but would be surprised how nice it "could" be! To each there own. Night and day diff between a spacer and 5100s and really that much better as you keep going to a better coilover altogether.

    That's what I'm wondering, I hope not but they seem to match up when spacers are put on the front...
