Newbie needs help with 5100's

    I realized I should have posted this here and not in the general forum, Sorry.

    I've got a 2006 Double Cab long bed, SR5. It came stock with the 245 tires. I also have an ARE topper on the bed that adds some weight to the rear.

    I want to get a more aggressive look for my truck, as it appears a little wimpy with the 245 tires. I don't do a lot of offroading, just some occasional beach driving.

    I wanted to put the 5100's on all four corners to get a little lift, and add 265x75r16 tires. I have never gotten the rear leaf TSB done, and I am not dissatisfied with my current ride.

    After doing all the research that I could, I believe I have to add some kind of lift to the rear to get the truck level if I want to set the fronts at 1.75". My question is, do I need to get the TSB rear spring fix, or can I add a spacer (or block, I'm not sure of the correct term) to the existing springs? I am still under warranty. Could someone advise me of what my options are/what to do? Any help would be appreciated.

    getting there....
    if you can do it....go with the rear spring tsb....the ride is great, and the truck will handle alot better. i really doubt you'd like blocks for the rear.........the ride is rough, and they can cause axle wrap. and just so you know....you can run 265/75/16 with the stock setup.
