    I got a 2011 dbcb sb 4x4 trd offroad. I'm wanting it leveled for now. I'm sure 6 months from now I will want more lift and bigger tires, but for now I'm going the conservative route and keeping the factory tires on there, they only have about 1,500 miles on them. With all that said I did have the rear leaf tsb installed and now I'm trying to decide what size lift in the front to get a level stance with the 4 leaf pack in mind. I'm not set on any style thought about 5100's since once I go with new tires and the plan is 285s in the future I could work with them. But at the same time if I can just simply throw a set of cheap spacers in there I may do that. whats your suggestion for both directions. Any advice would be great and any pictures would be even better thanks for your time and hopefully your knowledge.

    Just did the rear TSB on mine today and got about an inch lift in the rear. I am still on the fence for a front lift.. if you plan on going higher just get an adjustable coilover. Toytec makes one that goes from 2.25 avg...to 3"...with the lower setting you will be level w/ slight rake rear being higher. goodluck multiple choices w. multiple opinions

    Do it once and do it right......that means no spacer lifts, lol!

    You've got a couple simple solutions, 5100s with stock coils (not the most ideal since eventually the stock coils will be shit), 5100s with eibach or OME coils, full OME setup or a full set of coilovers! As for the rear a single aal will be good for lift and stiffer for load capacity or a 3 leaf aal for smoother offroad and flex but less load capacity. Really depends on your budget!

    Whats the problem with spacer lift? The idea of leveling my truck has been something I've been thinking about. And spacers was one of my options.

    They suck and are for looks only. Ride is terrible and will wear out everything else. I know first hand......I had one! Do a search and you'll get all the info needed! The 5100s are the better choice for leveling but with coils from an 05 they're going to wear out quick from the pre-load and ride like shit......especially with the Off Road coils!
