I like yours gman2530 it looks like it has the type of stance I am looking for.


I guess its called a "bro lean" or something like that. I cant find any pictures but I'm sure you guys know what Im saying! Again thanks for the help dudes.


Edit: Shitty picture but I found a perfect example..

I got approximately 3 1/2 inches of lift up front and 3 inches in the back I know the front will go down some once I add the bumper and winch.

You can run bilstein's up front with stock coils. If you set them on the 1.75" level and don't do anything to the back then you'll be nose high. If that's not what you want then set the bilsteins to the .85" level and you'll be close to level w/ a very slight rake.

If you want/ need more lift then set the billies on the 2.5" notch and add new leaf packs to the rear or put an AAL in the stock leaf pack to get you about 1.5" lift out back at least. If you go this rought you'll be close to level.

But you are correct, you need 1-2" of lift in order to use the billy 5100 on the rear.

This is not a bad way to go..

http://www.eadoffroad.com/toytec-skl...-lift-shackles

Once you set your fronts at the height u want, see how she sits then you can adjust these from 1", 1.5", 2'' of lift.. Sounds like you are a lot like me.. Particular about how the truck sits.. I want level, so i may be going to the Coil-overs because i can adjust the height..
Or Do the fronts... at 1.75", then decide if you even need AAL or Shackles...

Pics?

Beautiful Sight!!!!!!!!

Excited for you brother! It will Look & feel like a completely different truck!
Please send pics & if you don't mind please let me know the measurement for the front, ground to bottom of fender... I am at 38", want to be 39" to 39 1/2"
Really happy for you!
first time you get in, is when you will feel and see the difference.. It will ride stiffer so expect that....

Also double check and make certain they put the clip at the lowest mark on those shocks... There are 3 settings

Look at this tread when u have a minute... Grease fittings for our truck..

Thanks for all your help gman2530! Really helped me make the right choice.


Mainmoe02 I have a (could be stupid) question.. Was it a pain getting your headlight set up the way it is? I think it looks SICK and was wanting to do something similar.. and did you have a specific thread you used for guidelines for painting your rims or did you just wing it?

Here she is! Before before.jpg and after after.jpg !


I haven't had a chance to drive it yet and feel it out so we shall see how she rides.


Question. The shop dude said I should look into UCA's asap because the lift has them sitting at a horrible angle that is gonna kill the ball joints. Is he over reacting or is this something everyone does? Im not really stoked about spending a couple hundred dollars more on even more parts right away. Please let me know asap thanks guys!
