    With these shocks http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-1...acoma-pre-runner-4wd-pre-load-adjustable.html set at the 2.5" setting on the front do you need to get a AAL for the back to make it sit level? I might be putting this on my 09 DC prerunner 4x2, not sure if I want to do this or a 3" spacer lift. I,m obviously not going to be doing hard core off roading in a 4x2, just need a little lift so when I go camping , and fishing:)

    Or get the tsb done if you can. The billys are better than the spacer lift.

    No dont get that lift. If you do the billys, I think you get the long 2" aal and set the billys at 2.5" and it sits pretty level. Dont quote me though. Someone else that has done this will post.

    Your truck looks awesome, One question if I don't have the TSB done to the back should I go for the 2" AAL ? Also thanks for posting your pictures that really helps me out a lot , and I'm sure it will help other people out too. Do you think this set up would look OK with the stock rims and tires? I have the 09 TRD DC Pre Runner 4x2, My tires look a little bit bigger than non TRD package trucks could just be me thou, I don't have money right now for new rims and tires:mad:

    You could probably do the 2 inch AAL and be good to go. I would try to fight some dealers and get the TSB though on your 09. It's worth it in my opinion, especially for the extra load capacity. With stock rims and tires it will look OK I think. A lot of people do their builds in steps and run stock tires with a lift. You can alwyas upgrade down the road.

    What do they exactly do when they do the TSB, is it just an extra leaf spring or do they replace all the stock springs with new ones?

    It's a fourth leaf added to the rear. Since you have a TRD that's all it is. The non-TRD's get the Bilstein shocks that the TRD trucks have I think.

    The TSB leaf pack is an all new leaf pack. Not an added leaf to the existing pack.
