    cuz there so confusing!! haha but im gong to have to make another(sorry)

    ok so im going to do the tsb on my 08 dc prerunner and i was wondering if it will settle even if i never carry any weight in the back? i honestly dont want it to since i want to get billys set at 2.5 in the front...
    does the truck actually look lifted with this setup ?
    does anyone have pics of this setup on a dc (id like black with stock rims but any pics are appreciated)

    You are correct...there are a ton of TSB threads...but maybe all the questions will eventually get answered. ;)

    The springs will settle somewhat even if you don't toss anything in the bed. When I did mine I gained about a solid 1.75" in the rear...after it settled its down to about 1"

    the tsb raises the truck about .5", so it only looks slightly taller than one without it. i don't have any pics of mine, but it's only slightly higher.

    get it done, you won't regret it the least bit. think about it, you're getting a new suspension put in paid for by toyota. DO IT!

    5100's all around - fronts at 1.75", 265/70/17 Bridgestone Revo 2, HID headlights and fog lights, factory skid plate, ss exhaust tip, tube steps, Access roll-up tonneau cover, Redline hood struts, 6 D-rings, seat MagLite, LED dome, fumoto oil drain, DTRL, fog light anytime, Kenwood/Clarion speakers, Pop-N-Lock 5300, LED bed lights and a few other things...
    Easy answer...you WANT it lifted. Set the front at 2.5 and get the TSB done. If you don't like the look once it settles, buy a 1" block or add another leaf. Either option is under $80.

    You either get your preferred lift for nothing more or you spend a little extra money. It's cheap either way.

    Phantom X...where did you get your TSB done? Was it in the Columbia area? I still have time and no real need yet but I was looking for a no non-sense dealer who will do it without question.

    Thanks

    I got it done @ Jim Hudson Toyota about six months ago. My Service Advisor Chris Tudor is cool as hell...I'd recommend going to him. Tell him "Kareem" sent you...he'll have no prob setting you up with the TSB :thumbsup:

    The dealership quoted me $189 PER SIDE for installation. I told 'em they're crazy and they said "call around...it's the going rate". I was only curious as I have a friend that will do it for me.

    Look for a small ring ding body shop somewhere. You may be able to haggle with him and get it done for $100 total.
