here and there and I have '12 DCLB Sport PreRunner. I have 4 leafs instead of 3 so the question is:
Can I just get the Adjustable Bilstein 5100 for both Front and rear and GET the stance you have? I like to use the stock tires and rims for now.
Thanks and good question! I do have the TSB AAL from Toyota, so I also have 4 leafs in the rear. I also have Bilstein 5100's in the front and rear, with the front shocks set at 1.75'' (which is the second clip from the top). This gives me an almost level stance, and I have about 2 inches of total lift with my leveling kit paired with my 265/75/16 KM2 tires. There may be a very small difference in lift height between my TX Pro and your TRD Sport (which has some different components), but it should give you a very similar stance to mine.
One note if you regularly haul loads in the bed
: Tacoma's come factory with a little rake, as I'm sure you noticed, (front lower than the rear) to compensate for this. If you do not mind a little sagging in the rear when you do haul loads, than you will like this setup.
With stock tires and wheels, it will look similar to this: (This is my truck prior to new tires)
