    Idk from experience but if your just wanting to level it out. I would think it would be much improved. A little stiffer should make it handle a little better.

    I put 5100s @ .85 lift on my SR5 a few weeks ago, stock SR5 springs. Ride is firmer, more truck like than before, which is what I wanted. Note that this is with the TSB rear springs to. With just the TSB, it felt wierd to me as the back was firmed up quite a bit and the front seemed to wallow. Now with the 5100s @ .85, it feels more "consistent".
