    Ok I understand there are a ton of people that post about there lifts and look for oppinions without searching, but i am posting with minor knowledge after my searches :cool: . Im looking to get a little bit of lift but not a ton, because money does not grow on trees. Im leaning towards billies set at 1.75" and a rear 1.5" toytec aal. I am not planning on buying springs at the moment. I have also read that this should sit level; which is what I am shooting for. I do not have the spring tsb because this is a 2013 and wont be able to get it any time soon. If you guys have any suggestions, criticism, or comments, I would very much appreciate it :D

    With the billies at 1.75 and the aal you will have a slight rake. Also I notice you have a trd offroad if you use your stock coils expect a stiffer ride...

    You'll have a little rake with that setup. I'm running the same on my '12 and like it. I actually prefer the ride over stock.

    What do you guys mean by rake? Like a slight lower in the front causing a lean? or a lean in the back like a bro lift?

    Put them at 2.5 in the front and when it settles it will be level. Your lift idea is good and the choice of parts is also good :thumbsup:

    You'll be slightly higher in the rear, probably an inch or so

    Is it really noticeable? I didn't really notice it on your build. Also, I didn't want to set them at 2.5 because i heard the infamous Tacoma rattle will start, and I don't wont to wear down the parts so quickly.

    I put mine at 2.5 with a bone stock rear end and it is almost perfectly level, I have had zero rattle, it rides better on and off road and I couldn't be happier with my 5100's. Two of my buddies with 2nd gen dc 4x4s have had the same results pure smiles:D. You really arent changing much as far as geometry goes so the wear on parts is negligible IMHO

    hmmm, I guess that depends on the height of your back to your front for it to be leveled. Mine was about 1/2 an inch lower in the front than in the back. Yours would probably also look a little more level because you have the sport, which has the 1 extra leaf, therefore taller in the back by a little. Anyway, thanks for all the help guys. I think im going to get this setup and sort of build around like the majority of people here :D:D:D

    Some pics and info to help you.

    Mine are set at 1.75 with only the rear leaf tsb which gave about 3/4" in the rear. Looks level for the most part, sometimes I think it's a tad nose high though.

    My truck does have the "Taco lean" so the passenger side front sits 1/4" higher and imo that side looks nose high while the drivers side looks perfectly level.

    No, it's not noticeable at all. It has less rake than stock.
