    the back end of the toyota sets up higher than front end it had the 3" inch suspension lift can i take off the bottom leaf spring and lower the back down so it dont look like a drag car. the bottom curves down that should take the back down some right ill try and load pics so u can see

    If your talking about removing the overload spring that might not be such a good idea if you plan on towing or carrying any weight in the bed. I'm no expert but it seems to me you'd be better off getting a different aal. How much of a difference is there between front to back?

    Edit: Is that a block under your leaf springs?

    Remove the block and throw it in the garbage.

    Your overload leaf is vital if you're going to be towing or hauling anything in the bed.

    stock.....for now...
    Removing the block will probably level you out, or get you close. Blocks are garbage, they promote axle wrap, wear out your leafs faster, and make the truck ride like shit.

    You will soon learn from being on this forum that block/spacer lifts are the devil. And body lifts...they are the devil too :D For good reason though.

    You want the right answer: Remove the block and run just the AAL.

    Period.
