    I had the AAL installed yesterday by my Toyota Dealer. Verrrrrrrrry happy with the ride and stance. :D

    I have the eibach coils in the front and bilsteins set at "0". I also have bilsteins on the rear. I had the dealer install the swaybar relocate kit while they had it up on the lift. The heat here in the Carolinas is "arse" kicking and I did not want to fool with it. Thanks to 28guage and Maxtacoma for there advice and help on my decision to have it done. The ride and stance is exactly where I want it with absolutely no issues.

    Thanks Maxtacoma, I am seriously considering one of these someday. I live on a 900 plus acre lake here in Western NC. Beefing up my suspension with the AAL may come in handy. I like the Mako's.

    I never had the urge to lift my truck but I like that stance! Very subtle.

    Doing the AAL plus the 5100's doesn't only make the whole stance much better, but if you tow alot like I do it really helps out. The AAL makes the rear suspension so much more capable while under a load. The whole truck feels better.

    x2, I completely agree. Or in other words, I guess you could say its a mild lift with a real world purpose. Even without a load in the truck the handling is far superior over the stock suspension.
