    Hey Guys- Just had my mechanic buddy install 1" rear blocks on my 2011 DCLB. I already had the rear leaf TSB and front bilsteins set at 1.75" The truck is leveled out nicely and has roughly 2" of lift from stock. Ready for my new rims and tires.

    I am wondering if I need to change out the stock shocks? They are obviously extended a bit further now so I'm not sure if this is an issue or not. If so, what shock should I replace them with?

    Also what is the best fix for the taco lean?

    THanks!

    I am not familiar with shock extenders but sounds like a short term fix. No problems yet but I dont want to cause any damage

    I've had my blocks on for 2yrs, other than feeling them top out on harsh bumps cause the rear of the truck is so light, I've had no damage yet. An yes I'll be changing them out for a new susp soon

    even though i dont have tsb? i have read on here that some guys did not change them and some did. i guess i should check how much thread sticks out on them right now but prob should buy some.
