    Hi,

    Hoping for some quick and easy answers to this:

    2017 tacoma off road dbl cab
    front = king 2.5 w/ SPC control arm
    rear = king 2.5

    what set of rear leafs (or add a leaf) should I get to pair with these? I was looking at ICON 51100 add a leafs.

    Looking to gain around a 2" lift

    I wish there was a "Holy Grail Tread" to suspensions. There might be one but I just haven't found one as of yet? How much weight you got? Camper Shell, Recovery Equipment, Bumpers etc.....all come into play. From what I know anyway which isn't a lot as of now! I've seen peeps spend crazy money on here on suspension and them redo the entire thing 6 months later and for a crazy amount of money. :crazy: Maybe someone has the same set up as you as that is what it would take to get a good answer. :boink::notsure:

    I got nothing in the back. I do off roading but I dont tow anything as we tent camp. Might, might get a 1500lb enclosed trailer and convert it to a camper one day so might be towing around 2000lbs.

    The Icon 3 leaf pack does not give you 2" of lift in the rear, even with the overload spring kept in the pack. I had that 3 leaf pack and it definitely helped handle weight in the bed with a lift. But, 2 inches... nope. The rear of my truck was always sagging. Especially with the slightest amount of weight in the bed. I just switched to the Icon RXT to pair with my new Kings and they are fantastic!

    OK Icon RXT or dobinsons it is. Found a local dobinsons dealer, just not sure 100kg, 280kg, 550kg ones? Any info on this would be great!

    Depends on the weight you are carrying. Deavers are the king of leaf springs but a good second choice is Dobinson.

    It's a "one size fits all pack", that can be configured 3 ways. Comes with an extra leaf to modify it. see below image. They also say they come with a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser on the original vehicle they're installed on. Not too sure how hard it'd be to get them to fulfill it if needed, but when I spoke to a guy on the phone at their customer service he said they should never sag and would be warrantied for such.
