    Removed my 3 in Toytec spacers and my 255/85/16's today. Replaced with 5100's set at 1.75 and got TSB rear springs. Went to 265/75/16 BFG KM2's. It rides so much better. Feels much more stable.

    The previous set-up was higher and looked great. Truck seemed to wonder and didn't feel near as planted to the road. Not to mention the driveshaft vibe and shutter I had before. Even tried shims and didn't help.

    Much better now. Below is my previous build and I will get some updated picks of the new set-up.
