    Ok hopefully this hasn't been answered yet. I am planning on getting Camburg 4in lift spindles up front with billys set at 0 or .85. In the rear I'm going to do the rear TSB and swap out the 3 leaf pack with a 4 leaf pack and also add a 1.5in AAL. To my knowledge, stock prerunners sit about 2in higher in the rear that they do in the front. So adding between 4 and 5in in the front and 4.5in "rear TSB = 3in + 1.5 AAL" in the back will be about level. Anyone else have this set up or can reccomend a better route? I have a 2011 DC TRD Prerunner LB and I want the lift for looks, to fit 33in tires, to keep stock geometry with the spindles, and for light offroading "camping, fireroads, ect." I dont think that with my 95% road and hwy driving I will need a entire new custom leaf pack, and I've also heads that blocks in the rear is the worst way to go. Alright my essay's done haha. Let me know what you think!

    Best thing I can tell you to do is call camburg and ask them

    Your front set up sounds just right. The Camburgs will give you the 4inches in the front and the extra .85 in the 5100's.

    I'd recommend the All Pro 3inch leaf pack in the rear if I were you.

    It would improve your over all rear lift opposed to that AAL. ​


    Just remember, Blocks and Spacers are a No Go.

    wat?
    you lost me at that part. the rear TSB will settle to about 1" over non-tsb, not 3" by itself. also, if the rear is currently 2" higher than the front, you would need to add 2" less lift in the rear than the front for it to level out.

    Thanks for all the advise. I talked to Camburg yesterday and they told me either the Allpro 3" leaf pack or a custom Deaver pack is what people are running that are loading the bed with a lot of weight and/or off roading a lot. If I'm 90% road and hwy driving do you think that I would be good to go with the rear TSB and a 1.5" or 2" AAL? is there any major downsides to AAL's?
