    nice truck man! i am debating the 2" Toytec AAL or 1.5" Wheeler AAL. i like your look of the 2.5 billy setting and 2" Toytec. my question is if the toytec diff. drop is necessary with your setup?

    the back sits up just a little more than the front with the 2 inch aal but i believe if you want it to be completely even id get the 1.5. well when i installed the lift i drove it before the diff drop and i had vibes when i braking around 20 or just slowing down around that speed. after that i installed the diff drop and dont have any vibes now. plus there is hardly no angle on the axels trakes about 15 mins to install to. id do it just on the safe side.

    totally level after lift go with the 1.5" aal, small amount of rake as to make a truck capable of towing ow carrying a load without sagging in the rear go with the 2" aal. as far as the diff. drop. it is definitely worth the 20 dollars and plays a huge role in saving cv's and avoiding/eliminating front end vibrations. just my 2 cents. i run billstein 5100s with 2" toytec aal, and 1" toytec front diff. drop.

    That looks awesome!
    can you post a shot of your cv's?

    besides the 2'' aal did you have to relocate anything in the rear end?

    How is the ride with the billys set to 2.5" and stock springs? Is it rough? Im thinking about going this route with a lift too, but dont want a rough ride, I want it to be a little firmer than stock.

    to me i think it rides great but i did have 3 blown shocks before i put the billies on. it abosrbs alot of bumps and may be a little stiff but im very happy with the ride. hit a bump today that use to bump my truck around alot and now it glides over it. if you decide to do it you wont be disapointed. if you have anymore questions feel free to ask

    i have slight vibrations front drivers side, but has nothing to do with the lift. got a brake issue causing a small vibration, which became a bit more apparent after putting on the toyos. OH WELL its a truck
