    Not too many people have that lift. Thats because its not that great of a lift. Especially if you offroad. But there are a few people on here that have it. I cant recall who tho.

    I just bought a week old OME setup for 550. You get the lift from the coils instead of the spacers. I have a friend that has the spacers and he hates it. Honestly i would save up a little bit more and get the OME 885 coils and front OME shocks. Do you have the rear tsb done?

    you could get this...http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pa...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

    and these...http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pa...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

    I think you can run that front setup without adding rear shocks. You will have to double check on that. Then if the back sits too low just buy an aal. Also, your truck will already be lifted so just slowly save up for the rear OME shocks...http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pa...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=53

    Ok well basically right now your leaf pack only has 3 leaf springs. There is a Technical Service Bulletin (Hence TSB) to where the truck can bottom out under heavy loads and what not yaddy yaddy yadda. Theres lots of threads on here about that. Basically first check to make sure you only have 3 leafs on each side. Then go to the Toyota dealer and tell them that the truck is bottoming out whenn you put about 500lbs in the bed. You could just try sayig you want the tsb done. lol. It depends on the dealer. Some dealers will happily do it, while others are jerks. It's free too

    The new leaf pack will have 4 leafs instead of 3. And you will gain about and inch in the rear. Ive heard some people gain 1 1/2.

    I was just trying to give the guy some insight on my experience since i have done the tsb. One day i took my truck in because I was hearing a noise from the front of my truck. The dealer said "Is your truck bottoming out on bumps when its loaded?" when he said this he was shaking his head yes for me to go along with it. The dealer actually wanted to do the tsb. I had no idea until then what it was. Therefore it depends on the dealer. They didnt even test drive it. They just took the keys and said it will be done later.

    The whole point is....this is a free new rear suspension from Toyota! There are many people on this site trying to get it done...but no longer can because their truck isn't under warranty.And since you use your truck to carry your atv....why not. I use mine for my cr250. Take advantage while you still can. Thats just my two cents. And i know many will agree.

    Also, Oakley is partly right. Toyota didnt create the suspension tsb to give people free lift. But it just happens to be that when you add a leaf...you will get more lift. Sure it will settle a bit but you should still get some lift in the back. This is also why toytec came out with the tsb aal.

    The whole point I was trying to make earlier is that when you buy your truck bone stock, the back is already a little higher than the front. Then if you get the tsb done, even if you only get 1/2" of lift in the back...the back is still higher. Therefore i was trying to state that its okay to get the front OME setup like we stated and dont buy or leave out the rear aal. Then install the front and see how level your truck is. Then go from there. I have the OME setup to install up front along with the rear OME shocks. I dint buy an aal yet. Im going to install what I have and then go from there and maybe buy an aal later. So I will keep you informed as to how it goes and supply you with pictures.

    i forgot to add that you get a free alignment too. So if you wanted to do the left...install it first, then go get the tsb done so get a free alignment. Just a thought.
