    I'm looking for advice/options to get a factory rake (rear high) look.
    I recently installed Toytec-TTHA-CK 3" lift kit, 5100's all around with 620 Eibach springs up front set at .85, TSB 1 1/2" AAL w/2.5 degree axle shims. As she sits now its pretty much level to the eye. When you measure, its approximately 1/2" higher in the rear. Whats my best option to achieve more "rear high" rake?

    Will the new 5100's I just installed in the rear be long enough if I go any higher in the rear? The new 5100's that came in the kit are listed as "extended length 5100's".....

    1. New leaf pack? (I like the Dakars)
    2 Rear block 1/2"-1" to join the AAL?
    3 Other option?

    This is my daily driver and I do not go off road. Im hoping to not replace the new rear shocks, as these are 3 weeks old. But I will if needed.
    Thanks in advance

    I'd put the Dakars on. I've got the Toytec ultimate lift kit with the dakars and don't like it because i can't level my truck up. The Dakars will give you every bit of 3" or more in the rear. I do have the extended travle rear shoks though. Should have just put a Pro Comp 6" lift on and been done with it..lol
