    Dealer installed Leather, Truck Cover USA roll up cover, Pop n Lock, Bilstein 5100's on 4 corners set at 1.75, Rear Spring TSB. USA Spec iPhone adapter, 265/75/16 Mickey Thompson ATZs.
    I just had the TSB done and 5100s on 4 corners done on Tuesday. I had the front set at 1.75. All was done at the dealer so the wheel alignment was done with the new shocks.

    I had some concerns about the ride quality before... I actually like it better now.

    I just got home from a 940 mile road trip in the Tacoma (in two days)... it handled very well even at 90+MPH... I actually think it may have been more stable around big trucks than before. I alway wondered why my 08 FJ was more stable on the interstate than the Tacoma but now they ride and react almost exactly the same. So if you were worried about doing it and not being happy with the ride maybe this info helps...

    Thanks Blue76. I have researched the hell out of this issue and taking everything into consideration, I decided to go with the 1.75 Billy and 1.5 AAL with no TSB in the back. (I wanted to keep the rake.) Should be about the same as yours. I have been worried about the ride mostly. Your comments and others have been very helpful and assured me I have made the right decission. Parts should be here by the weekend.
