    First post here... Been on the forum for a while and I think I've found answers to most my questions, just have a couple more.

    I have an 02 4 door trd limited 4x4. I'm looking into coilovers up front (toytec, maybe some icons or others if I have the cash)...

    First question: my leaf springs are almost horizontal, go for the new full leaf pack? Deaver/Alcan/Wheelers? Sounds like I won't benefit from an AAL...

    Second: tires. I'm going back and forth between 32x11.5 and 285/75/16. Truck currently has a revtek leveling spacer and 265/75/16.

    Truck is a daily driver. Trail use isn't huge but some, lots of snow and hunting use.

    Thanks for any and all input!

    Welcome to TW!

    You dont have to get a full leaf pack. You can get the 3 leaf AAL from Wheelers. The OME/Dakar pack. Its a nice lift for the rear. Also, You should consider a 265/75/16 (32" tall) tire. Less chance of having to trim.

    Oh nice, just checked those 3 AAL's out. I think I'll do that.

    As for the tires, I have 265/75/16 now with just the leveling kit... I'd like to go bigger...

    Thanks for your reply!

    Then by all means, Go for the 285's. But, Be prepared to trim as needed. :)

    Hi there Neighbor! Def. go for the 285's. I didnt have to trim that much. And it looks way better IMO.

    If you would like, and have some free time. You can check out my set-up. I have the AAL inthe rear with a 1" block bc I dont do much offroading and it works well.
