    Hello tw,
    I am about to put a 2.5" coil over in the front, but dont really want to add anything to the back because i dont want too bumpy of a ride. Any ideas it this will work, or what it will look like?

    I dont know about a 2nd gen but my truck with a 2.5 in the front sat a little bit higher than the back. Barley able to see the difference. I just did the aal for strength when I have my quad in the back

    go with just the coilovers... the front with be just slightly higher and an aal will make it a bit stiffer..... the "lean" looks good in my opinion...

    I see you live in SoCal so you should be ok. They call it the 'SoCal Slant' when the nose is higher than the rear, baja style.

    I think it looks like a 1/2 finished truck but it seems to be hip with the kids so go for it.

    Thanks all for your comments. I really dont like the 909er look ( thats what i call the baja style stance). Right now the truck seems to be leaning forward just a bit, but this is normal. Im wondering how big of a backward lean i can expect? Is it going to be hardly noticeable, or will it by a huge difference? I dont wanna do the aal because i dont want a stiff ride, the truck is already really stiff cuz of the tires. Anything else i can do to the rear?

    it wont be a big noticeable difference but if you wanted to you could add a small block in the rear to keep it level like either 1/2" or 1"... it wont change the ride
