    hey since you have 4x4 i recommend getting a half or quarter inch top plate spacer (from toytec) for your drivers side to prevent taco lean... trust me do it now before you get everything on and alligned you will be happy you did! :)

    Are you just trying to level your truck? Measure it first from ground to fender, both at the front and rear. The back is usually higher. Get the difference and from there you decide how much lift you want in front.

    I have mine set at 1.75" and it gave me exactly 1.75" of lift. I have TSB spring in the back, so it's levelled. TSB spring lifted the back by 1.25" (others typically 1.5") but then settled to 1" later. Since you don't have TSB spring, 0.85" might be just the right.
