    Bilstien 5100's all around, OME 885 coils, AAL, Total Chaos UCA's
    I traded in my old tacoma for a slightly used 2010 (which I love). I had all my parts and wheels ready to be put on before I picked up the truck;

    Bilstien 5100's
    OME 885's
    1/2 inch spacer (I think)
    Procomp 7089 on BFG285's
    Add a leaf
    Total Chaos UCA's

    So my dealer did the install but I don't know if having the spacer was a good/bad thing? I read some posts from other people that it was a bad idea to combine the spacer with the OME's (the bilstiens are all set to zero).

    The ride is really rough, any little bump at high speed is pretty jarring. Would it help if I removed the spacer? The tires already rub a bit when I turn really sharp so I hope it doesn't make it much worse.

    Also, the front really sits up a lot higher then the rear.. not sure if its right.

    Your public profile says your truck is an X-runner , but you have a Sport bedside decal , what's the story ?

    Also are you 4x4 ?

    You have OME 885's which are made for more weight on the front end, I'm suggesting spacers removed. I would have gone OME 884's if running stock bumper. See how it works for you and let us know!

    It is a new truck, haven't updated profile. Its the 4x2 sport


    About the add a leaf, so they did say that when they added the new one they weren't sure what to do with the old one.. I take it the guy didn't really know what he was doing (my toyota dealer service department).

    Do they replace the old one or just add to it?

    Or you can leave the front and add 1" block to the rear. Should bring the back up a little if you like the 4" lift
