    Hey guys, I bought a set of coilvers and also bought the Icon progressive 3 leaf pack, which is suppose to gain me 1.5 inches of lift.
    My truck is a trd 4x4 dbl cab and already sits about 2 inches higher in the rear
    My question is with the coil overs cranked to 2.5 will the Icon leaf pack make the truck still sit higher in the rear? I want the nice level look.
    Thank in advance!

    wont the spring settle 1/2" or so as they break in? not sure if that helps.
    I'd keep some rake for loads anyway, or you'll need to adjust the headlights.

    It will only sit about 1" higher in the rear, or so. Hardly noticable.

    first im suprised your truck is 2 inch high in back already. is it stock?
    i did the TSB which gave me 1.5 inches in the back. but when i went to install the 5100s, i remeasured it and it settled to only a inch. so with that i set my front 5100 to .85. all together it raised both the front and back about a inch.
    here is how mine looks

    in theory , it does sound like your back may still be high.
    2.5 up front / 2 + 1.5 in the back

    check with the dealer about the TSB, it gives you a 4 pack spring.
    if interested research it here, it can be a happy story or a total nightmare trying to get them, especially on a 09.

    I didnt mean I was going to get the TSB done I was just saying I didnt have it done therefore I have no idea why its 2 inches higher in the rear. Supposedly the Icon progressive 3 pack rides real smooth

    Also would I be able to use a 3/4 inch top spacer to put on top of the toytec coilovers to help with the rake?
