    I'm currently running 17 x 9 XD Revolvers on my 2010 TRD off road. They're wrapped in 265/70/17 BGF TA/KOs. I have Bilstein's all around with the fronts set to 1.75. Under certain conditions the damn tires are still rubbing parts of the fender well. I've already trimmed the black drop downs in the front. I plan on running the front struts out to 2.5 hoping to gain enough clearance to stop the rubbing. My question is this. I have to bring the back up in order to avoid having the nose high. I'm down to either the add a leaf for the TSB springs from Toytec or the one inch blocks from Toytec. The difference obviously being a half inch. I need some opinions, are the blocks really that bad? and are the add a leafs that much better? and once more while I'm at it how accurate is that inch and half AAL. Is it actually an 1.5 inches or does it vary much? I know bunch of questions but I've been wrestling with this for the better part of two weeks. Thanks for the help ya'll.

    When I put my Air Bags on it lifted my A$$ so it didnt sag. And the ride didnt get any more rough like I think it would with leafs. just a thought...

    Toyota's are awesome
    Our full length AAL's really don't change the ride quality that much in the rear, plus it helps to really help support the fragile stock Toyota leaf pack.

    When you say fragile are you refering to non TSB or TSB or both?

    I just ordered the ToyTec AAL for the TSB rear leafs. I had a couple of friends try to sell me on the idea of a block install but once again the fine folks at Tacoma World made me see reason. Much obliged for the ToyTec discount code too. That really just leaves me with once more question. Will the extra 3/4 of an inch I'm going to put into the front Billy's finally stop the damn rubbing?
