    Hey all! I plan on buy the 6112s and 5160s for my tundra in the next week or two, I was wondering how to tell if my rear has aftermarket shackles. I looked under the rear and didnt see a block lift. I know the front has a spacer lift, but I'm not sure how much I'll attach some pics. I plan on removing the front spacer and getting the 6112s at 1.9 in to level the truck, unless I have shackles in the rear then I'll go 2.5 in.20200127_170456.jpg 20200127_170439.jpg Snapchat-344711708.jpg 20200201_150604.jpg

    Looks like its pretty level. Take a photo of the shackles, so people can help decipher. Measurement of the shackles can help too.

    From the pictures you posted, it doesn’t like the rear is lifted at all. Looks like a common 2” spacer up front to “level” out the truck. If you do post a picture of the rear leafs and shackles, you’ll have an answer immediately.

    Thank you very much! Thar is what I assumed after reading all the posts on this thread, I bit the bullet and ordered the 6112s at 1.9in and the 5160s today! Super excited to install them when I get off of this job in 3 or 4 weeks. Do I need to do anything to the bump stops in the front or rear with the new suspension? Or any other modifications? ( diff drop, etc)

    Where did you order them from? Are the front springs included?

    6112s come with the bump stop extension for the front. No need for a diff drop at 1.9”. You don’t need to do anything for the rear. You may need a carrier bearing drop if you’re raising the rear though.
