    i have a 98 tacoma 4x4. currently has all stock stuff height wise except for a readylift level kit (2" lift) and diff drop kit.

    i'm getting a bilstein 5100 set, toytec springs, 3" add a leaf and rear 5100s.

    my questions are; these are going to sit with a 2" rake? i have no experience with add a leaf stuff, and i assume the 3" front lift is off standard height. i want my truck to sit level. anyone else running similar setup?

    run the fronts at the "leveled" setting (+1.25" if i read correctly), so the truck would be closer to level. this would be 4.25" of front lift, it said not recommended to avoid damage/harsh driveline angles i imagine.

    so for someone who doesn't wheel a truck hard, is 4.25 front lift safe? i have the diff drop from my readylift kit. any feedback here is appreciated. my leafs are in great shape. they aren't sagging as a foundation reference.

    Remove the ready lift. Add the Eibach springs and 5100's at 0" and get a 2" AAL should sit level.

    Normaly factory rake is an inch higher in the back. Set front at 3" and put 2"aal in rear. I have a lot of weight in the back, so I have 2" aal's and 1" shackle lift rear and front is at 2.75" and I'm level.
