I’m currently running 3rd gen Bilstein 5100’s at the 1.5” setting. I’m gonna be readjusting to the front to the full 2” and didn’t want to end up with a lean. The rear is currently stock with the 5100’s as well. Any thoughts on a 1” block to level me out?

I too am looking at running this setup. Although I've seen some videos of 88rotors on YouTube do a 2" rear block and makes me want to do the same. You should check it out.

Peace.

I have heard that blocks and spacers will void warranty can anyone confirm this?

I have the same setup, with OME 887 coils up front and a 1" block in the back. Truck sits pretty level with no weight.

Looks good! I’ve been on the fence with a 1” or 1.5” block. Even thought about doing an add-a-leaf, but they vary from 1.5-2”. I’d also like to keep the stock ride quality and not have so much of a rake

Yeah that's what I was going back and forth on. I didn't consider doing a rack and RTT so soon, and now I need to get a full leaf pack in the rear to help with the rake.

You’re leaning toward a block over AAL or a leaf pack replacement for ride quality? Or is it cost?

Is your truck mostly getting used on pavement or do you plan on wheeling?

I recently installed the 1” block and set the Bilstein’s to 2”. I got exactly what I was looking for price wise and ride quality . Not much crazy trails where I’m from, so my truck doesn’t take too much abuse.

be weary with rear blocks. i have seen them come out while offroading. not sure what your intention is with your tacoma, but just be aware of the fact thats a possibility. I would go with a full leaf pack, or an AAL. I just got a full leaf pack myself (heavy duty pack OME)

Not only that, but on trucks that have issues with axle wrap from the factory, even a 1" block runs the risk of making it worse.
