    I decided I wanted to take my DCLB up two inches on a budget.

    I bought 884s from DSM because of free shipping $189.99
    http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-6815947-ome-2nd-gen-tacoma-fj-cruiser-4-runner-coils.html
    I decided on the Icon 3 Leaf Progressive Add a leaf. I have TSB spring, and left the overload in. Again I ordered from DSM because of free shipping. $214.95

    Wheelers off-road was a ton of help answering questions, so I decided to buy my Bilstiens 5100s and 1/4 spacer (for taco lean) from them. They gave me a great competitive price, just call them.

    Had vibes 65-70 mph, now they're gone after installing this kit.

    Back Passenger side 21.5
    Post Lift
    Front Driver side 22.25 inches
    Front Passenger side 22.00
    Back Driver side 23.5 (with overload still in)
    Back Passenger side 23.5
    I also threw a set of Hankook Dynapro ATMs on in 265/70/17.
    My initial thought is that the trucks looks way better. The ride is pleasantly ever so slightly stiffer than stock. It feels great, and I would reccomend it to anyone.
    **UPDATE**
    Numbers after setteling
    Front Drive 22 inches
    Front Passenger 22 inches
    Rear Driver 23 inches
    Rear passenger 23.25 inches

    ^^^^^Thank You^^^^^^

    I agree. In order to avoid the look of "bro lean" I figure the rear needs to be about 1 inch higher than the front.

    Yes the 5100s are at 0. Its not a good idea to preload OME springs.

    Nice, i also have a DCLB.. i think they look sick with 2-3 inches of lift...

    Edit: also, how much did it cost you to have the coil-overs assembled?

    Thank you
    The shop that did the work charged $287 for everything. It took them about four hours. The assembly was part of that. :cool:

    This is pretty much exactly what I would like to do with my truck. Not too much lift, but enough that it is noticeable. Would you say the truck would be able to handle a little more weight in the bed without so much squat right away? I had my truck loaded up with a single row of split firewood, and the rest of the bed was taken up by misc. fishing gear; not positive on the weight, but not where near max payload. I also had a pretty full rear seat as well;right rear folded down, with a few backpacks, a duffel and 3 sleeping bags. The truck was squatted pretttttyyy good in the rear. My truck is a '13 dcsb with the 3+1 leaf, just for comparison

    I didn't take the overload out, so I would say yes it handles more load. I have a 160 lbs cap, I was towing my 1600 lbs popup with no sag today.

    Ive heard nothing but good things about the wheelers HD. With shipping to VT the price was a little more.

    do you know if it would make up the difference though? i only have the three leaf pack, the AAL would bring it to 6, and i do plan on a shell at some point....
