    First post, go easy on me :D

    Previously had 5100s set at 2.5 and ToyTec AAL in rear (non-TSB). It sat slightly high in the rear.

    I just installed 886x coils up front and Apex bumper w/winch. Obviously the front sits slightly nose high now. I thought about buying some used TSB springs, but can't seem to find any. What other options are there for gaining another 1/2" or so in the rear without spending a fortune on custom spring packs? (I occasionally haul firewood and do weekend off-roading)

    Thanks

    Welcome to TW:D

    Everyone might bash me for this, but 1/2" blocks would probably be easiest and likely cheapest since you already have an AAL. I have 886's on 5100's set at 0 with a plate bumper and the TSB leaf packs with a 1.5" AAL and still have some bro lean...

    Other than blocks the only other option I can think of is the one you mentioned. Aftermarket leaf packs, like Allpro expos or OME DAkars.

    ^ That's what I would suggest for a band aid until you want a leaf pack.

    Thanks for the info! I looked for some 1/2" blocks for a simple fix, but didn't have much luck. Any idea where I could find some?

    At this time, $400 max.

    That would pretty much get you some Dakars or the Expo pack. Just need a little more and some shipping.

    With the Dakars you'll need new shocks, and the shipping cost is relatively expensive

    ^ that's them, you'll need 4 OEM bushings and new U-bolts as well for a full install. Not sure if shock extensions are available for the 5100s, but you won't break a shock just daily driving.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I took a closer look at my rear springs. They lay flat, somewhat arched downward. Only the center and ends of the AAL make contact with them. It appears as though the stock springs are pretty worn. I think dakars are the best bet. How is the ride with them?

    I went with the dakars, great springs. I also bought 5100s with extenders. Long story short I hated the way the extenders looked and they might be fine to some people but for me they were half ass and I wanted it done right. I junked that set up, well sold it and bought the b110 shocks they work great. You have to modify your bumpstops but a longer shock for sure.
    With the dakars, stock length 5100s and extenders the shocks were maxed out .

    Wheelers states the springs are 2.75" over stock. (Part # CS047)
    Toyteclifts states the springs are 2.5" over stock. (Part # CS047R)
    Is there a difference between the two part numbers?

    I want to make sure it won't sit higher than I'm looking for before spending the money. Raceline08 and Beavis0076, do you have any side pics of your trucks? If not, how does it sit with 3" up front and the dakars in the rear? (level, slight rake, etc)

    The Dakars will , on average get you 2.5" of lift over stock on a DC

    If you current leafs are really flat it may seem like more

    Op there are some pics in my gallery of my truck with the dakars , the last pic is a side shot, yes slight rake which I like. A load of firewood in the back and it sits level. Let me know if you can see the pic ? I'm doing all this from my phone.
    Thanks

    Thanks Beavis0076. That's exactly the look I'm after.

    I just called Wheelers. They said it's the same spring, they just didn't put the "R" in the website description.

    Wheeler's recommends a carrier drop bracket. Did you guys install that with your Dakar leafs?

    Now for shocks...how much stiffer is the ride with NitroCharger sport shocks (60091) vs standard NitroCharger shocks (N182)?
