    Hi everyone, So i Installed a 2.5" daystar lift in the front of my 08 taco crewcab 4x4. I put a camper shell on the truck and now it sags a little in the back. Anyone have any ideas on a block or any other thing I can use to put under the leafsprings? Add another leafspring? thanks in advance for the help!!

    Can you get a body lift just for the rear? You might say a bed lift.

    Toytec AAL = Horrible ride.

    Just remove the spacer lift and install a high quality 3 inch body lift. :cool:

    Jk! I also run Toytec AAL and love mine!

    I'm still working on my bad ass bed body lift... The "Babble" (I haven't figured out the "E" yet) Think of it, no one likes blocks, AAL are a pain to install, a bed body lift is the answer. Simple and handsome. If you're looking for a place to invest some retirement money, send me an IM.:rolleyes:

    wat?
    the E could be for Experiment...b/c i'm sure no one would actually get one. the lines of the truck would be completely outta whack. AALs are harder to install than an entire leaf pack, but still not hard.

    Im running the same setup and it rides great a lil stiffer then stock but in a good way. I hit the dip in my hood going 40 yo! Before I would have bottomed out and bounced to the moon going that fast
