    Hello,

    I am very close to ordering OME 884's to achieve my desired lift (~2"). I am also wanting to level out my truck as well, BUT it seems that the 2" lift will put my nose in the air... and the shortest AAL that I have found is 2.5"... which would give me even more rake than stock.

    I am looking for a way to get a level truck (or a slight front rake at the most) after installing the OME 884s. Any ideas?

    Wheeler's AAL is 1.5" lift. I am running it on my truck and it is great.

    Oh wow, that is perfect. I am assuming you are talking about the single AAL and not the progressive spring kit that replaces the overload spring?

    Speaking of which... anyone tried those progressive springs?

    I spoke with Jason from Wheeler's for 1/2 hour trying to figure out which to get. If you don't do any hauling/towing, the progressive pack will ride a little better.

    I haul sometimes, so I opted for the single AAL. It rides the same as any tacoma with the TSB done. I am really impressed with it.
