    4 leaf TSB, 5100's all four, eibach 1.6" coils, ARE cx cap, yakima racks, weathertech floor mats/rain guard/hood guard.
    just scheduled an appointment next weeke to have the 4 leaf pack (TSB) done and want to order the 5100's.. Do I really need to get the rear 5100's since my truck only has 5000 milies on it?? Also, with the TSB, and a topper (weighs 100 lbs or so), what should the 5100's be set @ to get her nice and level.. I was thinking 1.75"..Thaks alot guys..

    It kind of depends, my dad has an all stock 07 double cab and he put his at 1.75" and I have mine at 1.75" with my all pro front bumper and they both sit level. Some say .85" and some say 1.75", but if it was me I would set them at 1.75" with the TSB.

    on stock springs, I think the consensus will be 1.75, especially since you are also carrying a topper. rears are not necessary, but some like the additional smoothness they provide in the rears, but not necessary.
    I didn't get as much lift out of the rear as I hoped with the TSB but with mine set at 0.85 with eibach's, it sits dead level, looks nose high, but only because more wheel well is showing.

    1.75, just did mine last weekend, TSB was done a few weeks before. It looks like it should have came this way from the factory for a TRD Offroad. The rear still has a slight rake on mine.....only noticible when I measure from the ground to the frame but to the naked eye its level. With the shell you'll be perfect.

    TSB and 5100s @ .85.
    The tsb gave me one inch of lift in the rear after it settled
    so went with the .85 up front.

    I don't have a pic handy right now, but I just did the TSB last week and installed 5100's set at 2.5. Also added BFG Mud terrains, and my truck looks ten times better than when I bought it!

    I went offroading on the beach the other day and it rode like a champ, hit some pretty good bumps at 30-40mph and the suspension felt awesome. Everyone was telling me to buy the 5100's for the rear but I can't see why..

    I think mine is pretty level, got about 1 inch out of the tsb, but the ride difference in the front and rear is amazing..feels like a real truck now!

    I'll get pics up tommorrow..let me know if you have any other questions
