    Toytec/billStein 3” lift. Matte grey 17” trd pro wheels. 5” rubber antenna. Led interior kit. Acanii led projector headlight and matching taillights. AFE exhaust. Trd off road chrome bumper.
    So I’m looking to raise the rear by 1” and I’m looking for the best option!
    My current set up I have the
    TTHA-CK Toytec/Bilstein 3” lift kit
    This come with the Toytec rear Add-A-Leafs. Provides approximately 1.5"-2" of lift And Toytec Aluma Series 2.0 Rear Shocks - Designed for 1-3" of lift.

    i was sitting almost perfectly level with the front until I added the camper shell now it sits roughly 1/4” lower. That doesn’t include if I ever put/haul anything around.

    what are my option to gain an inch so I can have the rear sitting higher than the front? Thankyou!

    It would be economical to go with a 1 inch block. Otherwise you'd have to change the whole leaf pack. Not sure if you could stack add-a-leaf setups, it may not be recommended.

    It's a one inch block, don't over think it. If you were going 3 or 4 inches then maybe buy a high dollar reputable brand. But 1 inch is gunna be solid material and not worth the price for a big brand. Might be worth it to shop around for highly recommended u-bolts though. Although I've used cheapos in the past on my old lowered 07 5 lug and never had any problems.

    I’m going with the same setup from Toytec. I would consider the OME Medium Leaf Pack to should yield approx 2.5” in the rear since the Aluma’s are stated to be able to accommodate 1-3” lift.

    I’ll be doing this set up

    @TakoTuff
    How is the ride quality? This is my first lift and doing way too research here. I think this Bilstein Toytec kit will fit my needs

    Need to do this. Trying to decide between 1" and 1.5". Any functional differences besides the height?
