bds suspension

I live in kentucky and I have a 01 regualr cab toyota and I recently saw another regualr toyota that was lift I stoped and talked to the guy and her said he had a 2 inch lift from bds suspension and swore by it and said it was a good quality but I wanted to get the opinion of you guys. Its also a strut spacer lift which throws a flag to me

Its amazing how many people think spacers and blocks are good lifts...probably because they just take the advice of the first salesperson they talk to and dont do any research.

I know people that buy $50k trucks and then put spacers and blocks on them to lift it

Like other have said, if you want about 2'' of lift, OME suspension and an AAL in the rear are your best bet.

I wouldn't combine 5100's and OME coils, that combo is usually too stiff. The OME coils are made for the OME struts. You can use the 5100's and OME coils together, but will ride nothing like the full OME setup.

Everyone on here that has used OME coils on 5100's later switched to OME struts and were much more satisfied with the quality of the ride.

The only lift coil I would suggest with the 5100's are the eibach, but they give 3''+ of lift.

Why do you want to go with the 5100's, because they are cheaper?

If so I would save up for the OME's. At least run the OME setup in the front, and if you want to save a bit of money run 5100's in the back.

Well I've been looking on here and just kind of falling in where others have been talking about lifts and what not ill be completely honest I know very little about all the different choices and brands and its not so much that there cheaper its just I'm building a 70 nova so I'm not looking to stretch myself thin and ill prollt end up doing a AAL

http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-49...-leaf-kit.html

this AAL is a progressive 3-leaf system. Will be a lot better then a single AAL.

Then run OME in the front for about 2'', rear will be about 1.5'' and you will be pretty level.

is your truck a V6 or the I4?

Then get the 884 coils. Same spring rate just slightly shorter than the 885s.

OME 880 coils should level you with a 1.5'' AAL in the rear.
