    Lots to come at some point. Hopefully soon.
    So I got a 2006 Prerruner that is the base model. I just had the TSB completed so I have the new leafs in back and new shocks for both the back and front. I think the TSB lifted the rear about a inch and now I want to level the truck. I think to level it I will have to get about 2-2.5 inches up front. What is my most economical option? I want something cheap but at the same time I don't want to hurt my truck.....I do about 99.5% road driving and i'm not to against a slightly stiffer ride. What to you recommend and what will it cost for parts + labor?

    Bilstien 5100's should fit your needs. You can install them your self, and save some cash. :)

    I'm not great with trucks and don’t want to **** something up so I will probably just take it to a shop. How much do you think labor would cost? Do they just slap them on or do they do an alignment and everything?

    For an alignment and install, $250.00 should be reasonable.

    I got all 4 5100s installed for $100 alignment $80 I set mine at 1.75 and I sometimes have to take a double take sometimes it looks a little nose up but it mesures 3/4" higher in the rear. I dont think I would be happy if I would have gone 2.5". When I park on level slab and put a 4' level on my bed rail it reads almost perfect. Very slightly higher in rear. At 2.5" it would read higher in front. If I put any thing in the back of the truck it looks nose up and I dont like that look. So I would not more than 1.75" unless you want to do an aal. That's my 2 cents. [​IMG]
