    I had the truck lifted 3" for a while but the dreaded diff vibe lead me to take off the AAL and and lower the front 5100's w/ Eibachs back down to zero. So it's just Eibachs now with no TSB and I'm thinking the rear looks a little low. It measures just about even but it's a little deceiving to the naked eye. So my options are TSB the rear even though I don't really need it, one inch block w/ 1 degree taper to maintain the ride or leave it alone?? Here's a pic

    Yikes! It sits that low unloaded? You don't have 250lbs of sand bags in the bed do you?

    Yeah, you gotta get that fixed. I'd say your a perfect candidate for the TSB

    Can you hook it up with a pic on level ground? On this it looks like u need it but i can also tell the lot is slanted too. The truck looks nice though.

    I say TSB and take your 5100's up one notch to give it a little more height cause I think the back will sit to high with just the TSB.

    Well I do have Eibachs (Toytec) springs up front. I don't plan to raise it again due to my luck with the diff vibe/growl. The lower the front end is the less I hear and feel it. It's going in to the dealer on Tuesday for a second look at the front diff and I'll have them look into the TSB for me. You don't think it'll sit that high in the rear with TSB and Eibachs do you?

    No I guess not. I think I heard people say after the TSB settles they get about 1/2 to 3/4 of a inch of raise in the rear so your butt might be sticking up a tad but nothing horrible.

    That's the reason why I don't mess with the suspension on my rides anymore. There ends up being a chain reaction of required mods and problems

    You need the TSB.
    Get the TSB and don't monkey with blocks.

    BTW, you don't have rake, you have bro-lean, silly.
    You a gangsta ?
    When you put yer hos back there, she's really gonna lean.

    I say get the TSB. You are going to have hell of a take-off angle when you put some weight in the back.
