    Need some help . Ok first let me say that I did do a search but its not clear. My question is how much lift in the rear can I go before I will start to get any kind of vibration. I plan on leveling the front to the back.

    Sorry I miss worded it . What I meant to say is. I would like to go about an inch in the rear and then level the front to that.

    I just lifted mine 1" in the rear with a block and and inch and a half in the front. No vibrations, rides like stock.

    If the OP has the 3-pack leafs, I hear .85 on 5100s makes it sit level. With the 4-packs, it's apparently 1.75.

    The impression I get is if you stay around 2" up front you won't generally have alignment or other issues.

    How far under 2"?

    I went with 884s under the impression they would give me almost exactly 2" and level it out a bit after I put my General HD packs in the back. Hope they're not too much higher than that!

    I'll find out next week I guess...

    EDIT: I see you have a PreRunner, so that explains it. My front end will be heavier since mine's a 4x4.

    Yeah I am a prerunner that's why I got 1 13/16 on the passenger side and 1 9/16 on the driver side. I have the 2 + 1 stock leafs. I wish I would have gone with the 884's with the spacer for the taco lean. Let use know what you end up with after putting the general hd leafs.

    I'm at 2-1/4 in the rear so far, but I think it's still settling.

    Ok so from what I'm understanding , if you stay 1in. or lower there shouldn't be any vibrations issues. Right ?
