    07 Dbl Cab Long Bed
    2" Lift Kit
    I have a 07 Tacoma Dbl Cab Long Bed w/2" Lift Kit (Truck is Level)
    My problem is that I installed a Bed Slide which dropped the rear about l/2" to 3/4" Down w/a tool box in back. I also haul a boat trailer & utility
    trailer which drops it a little more. I was wondering what the best solution
    is to raise it up might be even if its a little higher than the front. (Add a Leaf/Bilstein 5100 for the Rear/bilstein 7100 for the Rear etc..) I forgot to mention the lift kit in the back already has a 1" block installed.
    Thanks Terry

    Just shocks won't lift up your truck. I would go with an AAL or maybe a block. AAL's and blocks range from 1"-3"s depending on what you want.;)

    I would go with an AAL, it'll be a better ride than a block, and serve your towing purpose better.
