    So I have 5100s on all four corners(front set at 1.75),stock coils, and tsb leaf pack.
    As it sits it's almost too level.
    I decided to give these https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-5-2-Rear-Add-A-Leaf-Lift-Kit-for-1995-2019-Toyota-Tacoma-4X4-2WD-TRD-SR5/123787055552?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 a shot and ordered them yesterday. Thinking about adding .75" spacers up front https://www.bilsteinlifts.com/shop/...-up/front-lifts-2/front-top-plate-spacer-kit/ to get a total of 2.5" as I don't have the funds for new UCA atm.
    Thoughts?

    No to all of it. single leaf AAL is just going to cause more axle wrap problems, and a spacer up front on already lifted... cmon man, an no UCA's, i run aftermarket ucas on my truck at 1.75in.

    Yeah I'll probably just hold off on the front util I get some 885s and set them a 0. As for the AAL, its already in the mail :ballchain:

    A few mods here and there and counting....
    Eventually, you’ll want to replace it w full aftermarket leaf pack as the AAL is just a bandaid.

    I've been curious why AAL's aren't liked here. I know they're not the most ideal set up. Do they settle over time and lose their lift or is it ride quality?

    As a person who has ran a 2in single AAL on a stock 3+1 pack, i can tell you it will increase your axle wrap to NASTY levels. If you want to run an AAL, a progressive AAL will be better, as there is more spring thickness to support axle wrap

    Just an update.

    Before


    After


    No axle wrap to be detected.
    I'm 2wd not 4wd which is probably the difference.

    Axle wrap has nothing to do with having a 2WD or 4WD.

    @Jacked Burton, Thanks for the heads up and the pics. Installed mine last weekend and they are solid. Bilstein 5100’s on all four corners front on highest setting and torch AAL No change in ride quality as far as I can tell....it’s a truck, rides like a truck. Here’s mine. Thanks again

    So after a little over a month of using the add a leaf torch off road set up have you had and issues or complaints? I need a solid inch or inch and a half to get mine level or just a hair higher in the rear.

    Jdtaco12, No issues at all. Once settled I am at 1-1/2” increase in the rear. I have bilstein 5100 front and rear with the front on the highest setting. Rear is slightly higher than the front but very minimal after it settled. I have made several mid range trips (200-300 miles) and the ride quality hasn’t changed from stock as far as I can tell. Very pleased with them.
