    Hey guys i have the rear tsb and was wondering if I should use a two inch lift block or a one inch. If i use the one inch block i will be exactly level, but if i use the two inch block i will get the rake i want. So my question is will i have to use longer brake lines with a two inch block and tsb?

    Are you going to take it off roading? Why do you want to add a block? They provide horrible road manners and are bad for the springs. Why not just get a AAL?

    No I wouldn't say you need longer brake lines.

    Ok so a two inch add a leaf would work?

    Absolutely. There might even be a 1.5" if you'd like

    I'm wanting to do a 2" leveling kit on my truck. Any issues that anyone knows of with that. I plan on using the skyjacker kit.

    Go with bilstein 5100s instead of a spacer lift, check out the suspension sub forum or try searching 5100s. Spacer lifts can cause your shock to bottom out before the bumpstops stop uptravel, spacer lifts have been known to snap and bend shocks if you offroad

    even smoother, downsouth motorsports offers the Icon progressive AAL..... 1.5" without overload, or 2" with overload.

    much smoother ride than a single aal.....I am glad I had both, now I can say I have felt the difference first hand.

    I did a 3 leaf progressive AAL, from Wheelers(no TSB) left over load in gives me a slight rake, with front setting at 1.75, I'd stay away from blocks. The ride is softer then OEM, and I can hook up my 4-wheeler trailer ,with no bro-lean

    Thanks for the advice, any idea on what setting to use to level it out. I'm going to be putting an ARB Bull Bar on at some time so I'll probably need to go a little high to account for the sag.
