    Hey guys, I'm going to be starting work on my suspension. I have an 06 TRD Sport Regular box 4x4 . So far all I have is Icon coil overs and Total Chaos UCAs. I don't want to be flamed on here. I have read ALOT about things. I'm not going to be using my truck as an off road machine, but I do travel alot of winter snow covered roads so I like the clearance.

    What I need help with is what should I do with my rear end? I want 2.5 to 3 inches of lift and I wouldn't mind increasing payload a little if that was possible.. I have the TSB done on my rear leafs. What are my options? I don't want the resivoir shocks. Do I need to go with different leafs or an add a leaf? What kind of shocks would be good? Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Toytec has an AAL that should be good for about 2" of lift, and you could get some OME N182 rear shocks....

    Bilstein, OME, ICON, Fox, King all have really good shocks for lifts. You don't "need" the diff drop and some say it's pointless but for the price I just went ahead and picked it up as well.
