Lift Question - Trying to get a lil more lift

Let me first say that I don't know that much about lifts. I currently have an 02 Tacoma with adjustable Bilsteins in the front and an aal and Bilstein 5100's in the rear; I beleive the total lift is around 3 in. I would like to add a lil' bit more lift, around 1 inch to clear my tires that are slightly rubbing. If I was to purchase Eibach 3-in springs for the front and adjust the Billies for an additional inch and then use 1-in shackles in the back, would this work. I'm trying to stay away from a 1-in body lift. Thanks for the help!

As far as I know, 5100s have to be used on the lowest setting if paired with the eibachs. But if you upgraded to eibachs you would more than likely be getting more lift than what you have right now anyway.

Your 5100's in front set at 0 w/Eibachs will give 3" . For the rear if you are still stock , slap 2 Chevy springs per side, dump the overload, get an extended brakeline, BPV relocation bracket (Jberry has these here on site)

& you'll need some extended rear shocks, call DownSouthMotorsports

talk to Sonny or Marco about the 5125 series Bilsteins, they can make them about any length you need, great price too....

I'm not stock in the back, I have Billie 5100's and an AAL.
