    I had the Toytec Ultimate kit with the adjustable coilovers and 5100's. The kit comes with the OME add-a-leaf for the rear. I used the 1.5" add-a-leaf because I had the TSB done to my rear leaf (4 leaf). If you don't have the TSB (3 leaf) then Toytec includes a 2" add-a-leaf with the kit. You can essentially just use the 2" if you have the TSB to bring the rear up .5" higher from being level.

    Do you have 3 leafs + the overload leaf? If so then you would have the TSB. If you see only 2 leafs and the overload leaf then you don't have it. The Toyota Service Bulletin (TSB) is done at the factory to give added support in the rear because many of our trucks didn't have it and the rear would sag with a small load in the bed or nothing at all sometimes...mine sure did. You can research it here. If it is still under warranty then I would go ahead and get the better leaf pack and then just do the 1.5" add-a-leaf installed. Or, get the 2" add-a-leaf if it is out of warranty or you don't feel like messing with the TSB, to give you the extra height to go with the front setup.

    You will essentially be perfectly level with either setup I discussed. Toytec can help you decide also if you give them a call. They will tell you exactly what I have said.

    OP said they had a '12 so unless they have a OR they probably have the TSB 4 leaf set up.
