Yeah, can grease the leaves with the bacon so they dont squeek
Let the people know.
Could offend someone tho.... maybe i shouldnt.
Cause i have a reputation to uphold.
OK so you recommend 1.75...?
Rear?? Don't know what do you suggest..
I would get Dakars if you can afford them you can take the 3rd leaf out of the pack and it will sit about 2" over stock. That will give a slight rear rack with your 5100's set at 1.75". If you decide to set them at 2.5" you can put the removed leaf back to level it out again. You can also always put it back in later if you get a heavier rear bumper or a cap and need it. Otherwise there are AAL for the rear to bring it level. Toytec or Icon make 1.5-2" AAL that should work for the 1.75" setting.
Dunno, ur truck... use a floorjack to lift the front end to 1.75 and see if u like it. Then try 2.5 and see if u like it.... set 5100s accordingly.
Its subjective since its your truck
Thanks guys..for the info...keep both in mind...
First thing is for you to separate shocks from spacers, a spacer is nothing more than a block or wedge, that increases height & can really mess with the geometry of IFS for alignment purposes, now the "shock" you'll want with that much $$ to work with is the 5100 & if so mechanically inclined you could rebuild your stock leaf pack or at least get a 2-leaf AAL to help out the rearend, this can be done for under $500 (you can lift 2nd gens. up to 2" in rear without changing shocks IIRC)
The ride is unbelievable.... smooth and handles great...
Man... That's a nice truck!
That is a beautiful truck JonRod
Nice truck, & yeah a little stiffening up does a Tacoma wonders ride wise...
