    I got the full 3" OME lift with 886 coils (heavy) and Toytec AALs on the rear.

    My front sits a tad higher than my rear.

    I'm afraid to put any weight (trailer, bed cap, etc) for fear it will raelly look saggy.

    I want to lift my rear suspension another 1" at most to level it out.

    What are my best options?

    You can see my truck on my profile pics

    Thanks

    probably a new leaf pack. You might be able to put another aal in but I bet it will ride like shit.

    I think the bro-lean matches the rockstars perfectly.


    But seriously now....did you get the 2" or 1.5" toytec AAL? If you are already at the 2", your options are a 1" block, or you could go with a new 3" leaf pack. I'm not sure anyone makes a 3" AAL.

    How long has the front had to settle? Mine took a day or two to sag back down to where it currently sits.

    How long have you had the lift installed? You may need to run an 885 coil set up front.

    Well since he's a 4x4 DC LB the 886's are probably his best choice cause of the extra weight. But yeah, what size AAL are you running in the back? If you got a full 3"s up front, you will need at least a 2" AAL to level you out. A 1.5" will give you that rear sag for sure. And like the others said, how long have you had that lift setup for? Mine took at least a few weeks to finally settle in, maybe even longer then that.

    you can add a shackle in the rear but then maybe your tires will start to look small. It never ends.

    The 886's are only to be used on a truck running a heavy bumber/winch

    Hey guys, I've had the lift on for at a few months now. So it has had time to settle.

    I'm not exactly sure if my aal is 2" or 1.5". Its the standard one that comes with the OME lift from Toytec. Checking their website I can't make out which one it is for certain. http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    I was told by Toytec today that the 886 coils will produce a highr than 3" lift without a aftermarket heavy bumber (as a couple of you have already mentioned).

    I like the height of the front - and I'm definately not taking that thing apart again (coil compression, etc). So I think the 1" block is gonna be my best bet at this point.

    Thanks for the help guys,
