    i have non tsb real leaf pack with 1.5" aal and 1"block with 5100's

    some down travel was lost but i stacked as many washers on the shock as i could to move it down a little bit, and i gained ~1/2" of the travel back that was lost when i added the block.

    I can get you a picture of where i put the washers later tonight if you'd like.



    p.s. The washer idea is a pretty sletchy fix if you ask me but it works fine.

    well aware of this, but they extend the shock 3 inches (according to toytec's site). If i had extenders on the shocks would bottom out about before i hit the bumps.
