    Hey guys, I recently got in on the wheelers leaf pack group buy for first gens and will be ordering tomorrow (5 leaf pack).

    Now I need to decide on front coils to level it out. According the the wheelers site, the 5 leaf pack should yield about 1.5" of rear lift.

    I have been looking at tacomaman06's truck which has the 881's with the 5 leaf pack and to me it looks like he has a bit more lift in the front than rear, and thats on a double cab.
    I just don't want to end up with a bro lean when this all said and done.

    So for my question, should I go with the 880's or 881's in my situation?
    Thanks

    I just installed 881's with bilstein 5100s on the lowest setting, and I have the Alcan/Wheelers 5 leaf pack, but it's almost 5 years old, with lots of heavy load miles on 'em. got a slight bro lean now, I looks like the OME's give about 2 in of lift on the stock bilstein setting. may have to either get a small block or an AAL to get it back to level.

    I would guess it'll be fairly level, given that my 5 leafs have settled over time.

    Here's a pic. The bro lean isn't totally obvious, but it's also not parked flat/level. Hope it helps.

    been talking with Dan at Wheelers, according to him Alcan 5pack + 5100's all around + OME 881's = level truck with 2" lift

    Yours looks good, thanks for the tips.

    I just went back and looked at your build and it does look level. I guess I was looking at them funny lol.

    Ok, I will trust him on that. Im going to go with the 881's

    Thank you all for the help.

    No problem, always happy to help out a fellow 1st gen-er when I can.

    I should add that that assumes you are keeping stock bumpers, no shell and Bilsteins set at zero.
