    Quick and easy question...I think.

    I installed a set of supersprings ( purchased here from a one douggytundra ) and they seem to be doing their job. However, they lifted the rear about an inch, maybe a hair more. So, while I do want to lift the front as well I want to do it right ( as in not use spacers ) so I need to save a bit first.

    I also have a cap on my list which could help the springs settle a bit, I understand fiberglass caps can be in the 250-300lb range.

    In the meantime though, is there any structural or mechanical issue that could occur from running the truck with a 3" rake from front to back? Everything up front is stock, and the rear shocks are stock.

    Thanks.

    No, just looks funny with that rake and probably ride more stiff without a load. I would have installed the cap first then the springs if needed.

    The springs are a "frequent necessity" for me ( carry loads for work ) so in that respect they are getting use.

    But day by day I am getting closer to pulling the trigger on a lift kit...damn you tacomaworld.com!

    If that's the case, then I would put the cap on first to see if it will settle the rear before lifting the front. Do it reverse order and you may end up with a lowrider look w/cap and a load.
