    I'm throwing around the idea of adding moar high to the truck. Now since i have a RCX :)flipthebird: rcx) my suspension is dropped down 5" but the struts are 6". so the most i can do is 1" unless i want my CV's vertical (i don't offroad much anyways so i don't have to worry about axles). gonna go with a 1" daystar budget boost for the front but the question is what to do with the back?

    do they make a 1" lift shackle?

    AAL? how much would the average AAL give me. i want to be level. not 2" not 1.5" but 1" in the back. i also don't want prerunner look so the rear will be lifted.

    Also would i need some sort of a driveshaft spacer or leaf shim to correct angle?

    later down the road i'll eventually add Camburg A arms and 6" leafs for the rear but for now this will have to do.

    pics of my stupid drop brackets and angles for reference. i should have bought a Fabtech... :/

    Your wife sure as hell noticed my extra 1"

    :poker:

    Lmao but really I might as well since the 1" budget boost is 40 bucks. Then some day I'll get 37's... Yeah we'll see about that

    I'd try a 1'' aal, I think it would put you about level with the front. I think.

    In my own imaginary world, where. Respect for wome
    if you get a true 1" up front, than an AAL will give you a level truck. You could always get a custom block made (prolly same price as an AAL) and just swap that. Although that AAL will give you lift, it also stiffens up the ride slightly because it increases payload capacity. getting a block w/ +1" would keep your ride but give you lift.

    wasn't it just the other day you said you were done modding your truck? :poker:

    I don't want a massive block. That's why I eventually want new leafs in the future. So I'd probably do AAL for now. I'm not too concerned about the stiff ride either. What's a good AAL that would give me about an inch?



    Oh yeah done with mods? That's crazy talk lol.
