    i have a 2005 double cab sr5 trd off road with the stock 3 leaf pack. i bought the truck used so i was not able to get the TSB done for the leaf springs. i want to get bilstien 5100's. i was hoping someone would have some pictures of the stock leaf pack with their billys set at 1.75. i think that would be the correct setup. if im wrong please let me know. so please post pictures if you have some!!!

    The rear billies aren't adjustable. In fact no rear shock is(as far as preload) because it doesn't carry the load, the leaf springs do.

    As said, only the front 5100s adjust... as you can see, I solved my harsh ride (soft spring) problem with Ride Rite Air Bags (as seen in the photo).

    The 5100s were very good shocks in my opinion. The Ride Rites were perfect!

    My 2010 has better springs, so I don't need to add the Ride Rites to it.

    Pretty sure all he's asking for is a pic of a truck with billy's at 1.75 up front, and a stock rear.

    I had this setup for a week before I got the TSB, and my nose was slightly high. I don't have any pics though, sorry.

    I'm running this exact setup, front billies at 1.75 with non-tsb rear springs and stock shocks. I really like the way it sits now, the front is slightly higher than the rear but looks level.

    It really depends on how it sits now. You should measure both front and rear to see what the current difference is now. Even with my non-tsb springs the rear sat over an inch higher than the front stock. Now that I have the fronts set at 1.75, my front sits .5" higher than the rear.

    If you add a 2" block to the rear with the front at 1.75, you're going to be .25" higher in the rear than the front than you are now, making it even more uneven. Without knowing how your truck sits now, I would say either run the front at 1.75 with nothing in the rear, or run the front 2.5 with the 2" block in the back. You may even want to run the front at .85 of the rear is that saggy. Are you looking for lift or just level?

    Sounds to me like the fronts set at 1.75 with stock rear would be perfect for getting level.

    'spose this question would be for anyone.
    Is there a standard for measuring the front and back? Like.........
    Wheel Center vertically to top of fender opening?
    Ground to bottom of frame?
    Top of Axle to Bottom of Frame?
    I got the TSB Leaf pack and measured, for before and after comparison, on the same level concrete surface.
    Gained an inch at the rear wheels, measuring wheel center to top of fender opening directly above.
    About an inch and a quarter at the rear bumper.
    Now, though my measurements are not scientific (Wheel Center to Fender Opening), I'm about two inches higher in the rear.
    I don't know if that's just the difference in the fender design.
    I also have that Taco Lean to the left, 3/8" lower at left front and 1/4" lower at left rear.
    That's an easy comparison measurement.
    Anyway, back to the question, are there standard (or best) measurement points to level the front with the rear?

    EDIT: another question; do the 5100's change the ride much or at all ?
