    Hey everyone was looking at putting a 2 inch leveling kit on my 2005 Tacoma. I wasn't sure if it is good or bad to only have it in the front and the rear still stalk???? Need some help!

    Depends on what you plan to do with the Tacoma and how much money you want to spend.

    If you plan on doing much offroading then don't get spacers.

    If you don't plan on doing much offroading then just save the money and get the spacers.

    5100's. Set them at 2 1/2'', then your rear end will ''stalk'' the front and require work also.

    @jeffvt0508 Did the 5100's get pretty expensive?

    5100's at 1.75, Rear leaf TSB, Moto Metal 951 16x8, BFG TKO2 265/75/16, AFe Stage 2 CAI w/pro dry filter, Access Loredo tonneau cover, Tinted windows, EGR in channel vent visors, Ultragauge, UGA drink coasters in the front cup holders, and an Evenflow car seat in the back seat
    Link shows $309, I got mine for $299 a couple of months ago. I know there was talk of a price increase.

    OP, my info as in my sig, 5100's set at 1.75 with rear leaf tsb. Much better than spacers, doesn't cost that much more, and the install is pretty much the same process/cost. Ride is great, I like it better than stock. I highly recommend them unless you want to go higher.

    With 5100's on all four corners and the front set at 1.75", will 1" blocks in the rear still give you a slight rake? I have a '13 and it has the 4 leaf pack.
