    hey guys,

    i bought and installed a front leveling kit on my 08 double cab. i am wondering if there is anything that i can do as far as a body lift goes. i have been looking and the only thing i could find is the complete kit that includes the front lift. since i already did the front lift i only need the rear lifted.

    what could i do to achieve a lift without having to repurchase the front kit?

    Buy an AAL from one of the vendors on the board. Wheelers or Toytec both sell fine products.

    You can put an add-a-leaf (AAL) in your leaf pack, buy a new leaf pack or put a block in the rear (I don't suggest this).

    x2. I don't really suggest the block. If you are going to do it, go ahead and do it right with an AAL or new leaf pack.

    I was in the same boat......I used a Pro-Comp AAL and it was easy to install by myself.

    From what I understand look into shims when you start raising the rear. Maybe someone else with more knowledge can chime in to help more than I. Just wanted to mention it........

    Good luck.
