    I had the TSB done but don't have 5100's. I have a pretty vicous rake, and I only haul occasionally so mine rear end never really settled down. Let me look through my pics.

    PS. If 2.5 is too high can't you just set them to 1.75?

    Altered, i think we have the same truck. I have 5100s set at 2.5 with the tsb and a 1inch block. It sits a little higher in the rear, but i love my stance. I think with just the tsb you should be just a little high in the front.

    Lets get some feedback on ride quality (stiffer, softer) and mpg impact?

    I sometimes wonder if I even want a TSB rear. I don't haul/tow but I do wheel. While a little free lift is cool, I'm concerned if I do it the rear will be too stiff to flex well.

    Well with the tsb you will notice the back end being a lot more stiff. Ride quality is about the same, it is stiffer but not a nuisance. I didnt lose any mpg with the lift, but i did lose about 2-3 going from 31s to 32s

    What did you mean by "instead of the trd shocks" does that mean you can get those along with the new leaf springs or what. Also how do you go about getting the tsb's done...i just recently got a tacoma and im new to the whole program. If you would care to elaborate on the whole deal it would be a great favor.

    Also the 5100s are stiff shocks anyway. as they are a Mono tube High Pressure Nitro. VS OME Dual Tube Low Pressure shocks.
