    Finally got the spacer lift off and decent coilovers put on! Bought the truck about 8mnths ago with the front spacer and an AAL already on. It wasn't bad just stiff as hell and the wife was tired of gettin tossed around off road!:p

    Here's what I got: Toytec Coilovers, Camburg Ball Joint UCA's w/ custom dust caps (thanks Vidman, sick job), 5100's front & back, and Wheelers 3 leaf AAL. This combo's great! The rear is sooooooo much better, it's unreal. The front is still a little stiff and probably need to back em down. Set them at 2" and I'm still 1/2" higher in the front. Got a slight Socal lean for the time being but if it doesn't settle I'll adjust! Rough measurements come to 39.5" front and 39" back.

    Here's some pics! :D

    Ya, the lean isn't that noticable but based on measurements it's .5" higher. Would like it even or .5" the other way. Anyone know if the coils will settle? Been trying to hit some bumps but just put on Wed. Also, the rear 5100 boot looks a little scrunched must be extra room for flex.....guess I'll have to find out! LOL

    The solution to your lean and stiffer front ride is a plate bumper and winch. :)

    Thanks man, the Icon's I switched to are AMAZING! Smooth as hell on and offroad! They get a little rough on slow rocky terrain (no more than the toytec's) but anything above 10-15mph, they smooth out! Icon stage 1 or 2 is the way to go!
