    I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of a DC with the TSB leaf springs done with the Billie 5100's up front, set to be leveled. I believe at 1.75'.

    Thanks.

    TSB in rear, 5100 set @ .85 up front
    Goodyear Duratrac's 265/75R16

    When i had the TSB done it raised my back end up 1.5 inches from stock
    About a week later i received my 5100s. Just before installing i re-measured the back end.
    It settled to only 1 inch above stock.
    I was going to set them originally at 1.75, but since the back was only 1 inch above stock
    I decided to set them at .85 to keep the factory look.
    plus i have seen a few truck that look slightly nose high to me at 1.75.
    At these settings i have had no rubbing or vibration issues

    Just what I was looking for man. Thanks. Your tires, I'm not familiar with the whole numbering thing, are they the stock size or 32's?

    X2 I have the eibach springs on my stock billies and I got roughly an inch of lift, prerunners and Access cabs get about an inch and 1/2 of lift with the eibachs.

    Eibachs on stock billies as opposed to 5100s, wolfpack? I have the rear TSB on my access cab and wouldn't mind adding a little lift to the front. Don't need 3" or anything, but pretty much everybody says go with 5100s. Would eibach springs with stock billies be cheaper then? And how is the ride offroad?

    Since you have a Sport I'd check a few more pics of those with 1.75" up front. Granted every truck is a bit different but when I had my 5100s at 1.75" and TSB rear springs I actually looked a bit nose-high.

    I think it's the hood scoop throwing the eye off as you look at the truck from front to back. I eventually lowered my 5100s to 0.85".

Michelin 265/75/16 MS2's, Grillcraft MX series/TOYOTA badging. FJ/SE TRD Anthracite gray wheels. Katzkin leather/heated seats.
    Here is a another possibility, Eibachs up front, Billy's all the way around front set at zero. (I could not get the dealer(s) to do the TSB) So I went with the Toytec 1.5 AAL in rear.

    Very happy with subtle lift and great ride. Hope this helps with another option.

    I thought I read in another thread to go with the 0.85 up front especially if you tow. Truck should sit perfectly level then. I though someone posted that at the 1.75 hooked to a trailer they were nose high.
    Looking at this on our truck now that we had the TSB done.

    I tow and with my 5100s set to 1.75" I was definitely nose-high. Even when I wasn't towing (see pic above) it "looked" nose-high even though measurements from the hub front and rear were level.

    I just had my TSB done and now I plan on getting 5100s upfront. Have you noticed anymore settling of the rear spings since you set your 5100s at .85? I just want to eliminate some of the rake.

    TSB Rear and Billies set at 2.5" up front. TRULY level in my opinion. Merry Christmas.
