    Will this ruin my truck? I have the level kit already on it? I dont want to have issues with handling and so on because I haul up to 700 lbs when I travel but I also dont want to ruin the work already done. What are my options

    Why are you intersted in the TSB?
    Are you looking for more lift?


    What 'level kit' do you have? Is it an AAL?

    I am interested because I am noticing that when I take my dogs out to run and bring all our gear that at highway speeds the truck feels low low low in the rear and almost like the front left wheel is floating. Then when we sleep in the back even with my lift level kit I almost hit the wheels on the top of the fender well..

    Josh,

    How much lift do you have in the rear? Is it a 3" block lift?

    If you have a 3" block in the rear, I would not go with the TSB because the TSB will give you an additional 1" of lift in the rear. That's a bit high and unstable (paticularly with 3" block).

    Either leave it alone

    OR

    Get the TSB leaf pak and a Toytec Add-a-leaf.

    Ditch the block and get the TSB + an AAL. That will stiffen up the rear so it doesn't sag.

    It's going to be less comfortable, because it will be stiffer. If comfort is the most important thing to you, you'll have to deal with the sag you have now.

    The main thing I am looking for is load carry performance and ride performance, but was just asking about comfort because of the block vs extra spring. I know with the block it doesnt change anything other than height.

    The AAL will give you more load carry performance, but at the expense of a stiffer ride.
