    I lifted and maintained the rake, because I haul a lot, as well as tow, so I didnt want the ass end of the truck 3" below the front when loaded. :cool:
    Im at 3.25" front, and 3" rear

    At first I was level. Then I lifted the rear about 1.5" more than the front for a rake since I add 250 to 300lb of sand bags in my box during the winter.

    I want to do billy's at 1.75 with the tsb or equivalent. This seems to be the mosy common/popular way to level and its about as high a I want to go. My question is if I cant get the dealer to approve the tsb, how much lift is everyone getting from the tsb? About 1" seems to be the common answer and most aal's I find are 1.5". I don't want the rear too high. So that leaves me down to doing a 1" block on the rear if the dealer wont approve me for the tsb.

    I maintained the rake (not quite stock due to weight of the shell), but I got 3" from the OME 885s & 3" from the Dakars.

    My tsb springs gave me 1/2". Then added 1.5" aal, and 885 coils with billies set at .85. Now my truck sets level.
