    Hi to all. Awesome morning here in Ohio. Just sitting outside looking at my truck waiting on my buddy. The wife gave him the go ahead on making a run up to lake Erie for the perch bite. Anyhow, I have 5100 bilsteins waiting to be put on. The stock springs and shocks are just not cutting it in the rearend, when the boat is hooked up (3000lbs). The ride is nice when I'm not towing and hoping to keep that ride. (SR-5 only not trd package) its running with 3 leafs now. So, here's one of two ? I have. Would I be better off too. 1.- added a leaf or 2.-like some threads I've read buy new set of 5-leaf dakars and take a leaf out. The FRONT I'm not sure if I should set the 5100 at .85 or the 1.75 don't want to go any higher. For my last ? About the front end. Should I keep the stock spring or buy the 883 coils from toytec? What's the difference between the two and then what would I need to set the 5100 at to keep the lift at 1.50in. Would I need the drop kit for the front? I've read a lot of thread,couldn't find this set up. Going to do the lift myself and would be relieved knowing the setting are right for the height I'm looking for. Thanks a lot

    I have the 2010 SR5 AC 4x4.
    I just installed my 5100s at 0.85 with the Taco Lean spacer, stock coils, and TSB leafs. There is now 7" gap in the front and 8" gap at the rear between the stock tires and the wheel well unloaded.

    Go get the TSB for the rear leafs for free at your dealer. See multiple threads.

    Install the shocks before you get the TSB (at whatever lift you want) because they will do an alignment as part of the TSB.

    If you already have the shocks, all that is free and will give you a good baseline to work off.

    Thanks a lot for your help. Theres only about 22,000 miles on the springs. So hopefully the dealer doesn't give me issues installing the TBS. Wanting to move up to a 265 tire rather the 245. Extra inch there and my girl can still get in with just a little jump. Thanks! Again

    yeah go with the tsb, i know with dakars you'd need longer rear shocks, so that might not be something you want to spend money on just yet
