    I would guess this is a wheel backspacing or wheel width issue. I have 265/75 r16s on the stock 7" wide offroad rims. I only rub when I'm fully turned and flexed out over a big bump. Just turning on flat does not get me that close to rubbing.

    You may want to look into sumo springs. They replace the bump stop above the leaf springs. They are primarily intended to keep the rear end from sagging while towing loads. That said, it also seems to stabilize the rear end even when there is no load. I had them installed and love them.

    Hey guys, long time lurker and first time poster - need some help.

    Trying to add the Wheelers Progressive AAL and running into an issue on the rear side. Do I need to remove the clamp holding the leafs together in order to install the AAL and get it to lay flat?

    If so, how is done?

    I believe you will need to drill out the rivet or cut the clamp with the progressive AAL setups. With that said you will need one of the aftermarket clamps once installed.

    ^^^ yes, this. You need to drill the rivet head off, the pry the clamp off in order to install any of the progressive aal's. Not an issue with the single aal however.

    Can someone help recommend a setup for me? About to pull the trigger on my first Taco. I only put about 5k a year on my personal truck (I drive a GMC 2500 company vehicle most times). Im looking for a 3" or 4" lift that isn't going to break the bank. I do not do any type of off roading. Mostly looking for the aesthetics of the lift and hoping not to sacrifice too much comfort.

    I bought a level kit and gained 2"? Under $900! Installed at dealership. Material & alignment included! I believe a higher lift you'll spend $2000! If I'm correct?

    Your right and there is nothing wrong with that thought as long as you intended use matches your hardware choice, I think the look is awesome and for every day driving with a few back roads its useful. But what that $2k does for you besides the offroad performance and on road looks is give you that peace of mind when your a hundred miles off road in the shit..so to speak. Thats when you can pop a cold one and enjoy yourself.....peace of mind.

    Just installed. Rides better than expected. I posted earlier in this thread about Fox/King/ICON comps. The King reservoir mount is much better looking than fox's and ICON's... So if looks are an equal concern as performance, I believe I have the perfect setup with the King / Total Chaos setup. King part # 25001-119A-EXT

    I have the same kings as you how much lift do you have with those cranked down that much ? Also how much up travel? I haven't adjusted mine yet just left them at the factory height.

    I'm at 12 turns from factory height, the instructions say you can go to 17 turns for 3.5" of lift (on a 2015 taco, I know it's about .75-1" less than a 2016). I'm at about 3.5" of lift in the front... I'm guessing they will sag a little over time? Haven't measured droop or up travel yet.

    The king resi mount is pretty much the exact same as the icon mount except it's silver vs. Black

    Update, I'm taking it down an inch to get the best droop/compression range. So it'll be sitting about 1.5" higher in the front compared to the rear (which is still stock), and about 2.5" lift from stock. At my current configuration I'm only getting .75" droop at full extension, King recommends at least an inch. After adjustment I'll probably get 1.5" of droop.
