Sitting lower in front with suspension lift

I have a 2001 Tacoma extended cab and i put a toytec 3" suspension lift on it and it sat lower in front. Now, i replaced the spacers up front with bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks and it sits about a 1/4" higher than before (still not enough). I need to know what kind of coil springs to buy to lift my truck up to be level. I need about an 1" or 2" to get back to level. Help?????

you can't go any taller than 3" up front with stock lower and upper arms... if the rear is sitting higher, the rear lift is too much...

at 2.5 to 3 inch front lift, you want to do 1.5 to 1.75 inch lift in rear to level out...

what did you put in the rear?

I used a OME 881 spring. That will give you 1.5 inches of lift, I think, maybe 1.75 inches and then I went with the 5100 set at mid clip. If that doesn't level it I suggest using a smaller block in the rear.

Thanks guys! That's actually not a bad price on those springs. I'll be giving them a call soon to level out my truck.
