Alright if we are going to talk about shackles let's do it. I need something around a half inch for my rear to level out. The 1" is a touch too high and nothing in the rear puts my front end a little bit higher. Any ideas?
I knew you'd give in and discuss shackles.
Sorry to hear your heavy duty expensive CBs didn't work out for you.
Did you install them, or did you assume +1 meant 1"?
When I did a 2.5" lift to the front, the stock shackles made it damn near perfectly level.
I kinda liked it better level, but it throwing the nanny systems off.
There is a fix to make the truck think it still has rake, but I just put the sh1tty cheap Toytec shackles on since I bought them in a garage sale for $10.
The 1.5" setting was too high.
My super cheap, paper thin, made of tinfoil Toytec shackles on the lower setting gave it a little less the stock rake.
Rear sits about an 1.5" higher than the front.
When it was new and all stock, the rear sat 2.25" higher than the front.
The 5160 rear shocks I have run fine.
The whole 6112/5160 (more the 6112s I think) made the ride much stiffer, almost too much for me.
It has settled down over the last 3 years.
But I didn't like the stock black shocks at all, made me feel like I was in a boat over rough water.
My 2005 Tundra had a much better stock ride than my stock 2014 did..
And no, puncher of lungs, you can't hurt my feelings...
Good luck Bro..
