    Getting the rear spring TSB done when the parts come in. Will I need to plan on leveling the front or is it noticable? I noticed they are giving me all 4 shocks too. Thought that was odd as mine are fine, not that I'm complaining. Daily driver, unloaded bed all the time.

    I had the TSB done and it does make your truck look a little "nose heavy" I put 5100's on and set them at 0.85 and it pretty much leveled my '09 double cab short bed out. Probably could set then at 1.75, but I was a wuss when I put then on, but there is very little rake and I like them at 0.85.

    You'll also want to put on 265/75 tires as you'll see the TSB really makes the rear tire look small

    The rear will settle a lot. I had the tsb done last year and it settled so much that my 5100s are set at 0.85 and truck is level. 3 sandbags in the back and it's maybe even nose high. Yes the truck rides better with tsb springs. Even more improvement when paired with 5100s all around.

    Mine was 1.5" after installation, and settled to 1" after a month. Been at 1" for a year now.

    I'm thinking my sandbags back there every winter has caused some extra sagging.

    Did you find that it was nose-up at that setting after the rear leafs settled? I'm about to do the TSB and front-only 5100s and need to determine the right preload setting. I will NOT be adding a lift at this point. I just want to keep things level.

    would air bags in the rear help replace the lost height after settlement?

    Getting it done at Don McGill in Katy. Didn't even by the truck there. Look around at different dealers, they are all different.

    Hey here's something to ponder... shocks from an 09 Seqouia are approx. 2" taller from lower mount to lower mount that ours. Thats including the isolator at the base of the Seqouia shock. Thinking the valving might be too stiff though. Everything else is the same.
