    Well, I've done my research and, like most, I still have a few ?'s I'm new to lifts so bear with me.

    09 AC TRD O/R. Stock. No rear TSB... Yet.

    My truck is my daily driver. I do off road a few times a year. I want a 2 or 3 in lift. I also use my tuck to haul my bike. So, I will randomly have 500 to 700 lbs in the back. Assuming I get the TSB done (I am in the dealer/toyo corp. process) Here's what I want.

    Toytec OME lift kit. 884 or 885 springs, no top spacers, and the toytec AAL. I like the looks of the OME for ride quality and price.

    So, the 884 and 885 coils are the same weight but the 885 is a longer spring correct? 884 will give ~ 2in and the 885 ~ 3in right?

    1. AAL's DO improve payload capacity? How much rake should I maintain for hauling with the TSB and toytec AAL? I don't want the truck riding nose high while I haul motorcycles.

    2. Should I run 884 or 885 coils? I can achieve a greater rake with the 884, obviously, or do you think the AAL & TSB will be enough to handle the load with the 885's. Those with 885's on an access cab: Do you feel the front end is too stiff? Did you need UCA's?

    3. Isn't there a member that can get us a discount from toytec? I searched but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks in advance.

    1) No they do not. Load Cap is based on a variety of things. It will handle the rated load better in most cases...but you can't expect to put a ton of stuff in the truck and have it work as advertised.

    2) 884s are probably fine for you. It'll ensure you have that rake you want. THe 885's ride nice in my AC...Can't garantee you'll like it tho. UCAs are a good idea..but not required.

    3) There is...PM Neubs.
