OK, first off hello everyone.
I'm a long time lurker first time poster
I just purchased a set of Billy 5100 fronts and 5125 rears but have yet to install these puppies.
I have read EVERY post regarding the Bilstein 5100's on Tacoma world. I got a lot of helpful info. Thanks.
Still, I am not confident on what my options are as far as the middle setting on my struts. I know the first notch is 0" and the 3rd notch is 2.5 more or less. But what is the middle setting going to do to my truck and how many inch(s) am I going to get? Everyone is saying they get different results. Some say 1.75in, others 1in, another person said 1.25in. WTF?
The reason I'm asking is because at the very least I want my truck level, and at most a SLIGHT "bro" look on the middle groove is fine.
That being said, If the middle setting gives a slight "bro" look, I am cool with that. On the flip side, if I am still "stink bug" I will be pissed. So if "stink bug is the case with the middle setting, then I will say fuck it and just go with the full on 2.5in "bro look".
Sorry for the long post. I hate when people post long ass posts like myself
