    Dakars or tsb? they are going to have a 4 inch block under them and I carry 2 dirtbikes in the bed and 3 on a trailer every weekend. the stock springs with a aal just arent cutting it. Im trying to level out my truck.

    tsb wont lift as muck as dakars, I would go with dakars, you should get around 3" with them. Wont matter though, the leaf pack will sag with either over time. Are you a 4x4
