About to order my lift!

So I'm going to order my lift next week. The plan right now is to get the Bilstein 5100's for the front end and set them at 1.75. I already have the TSB on the rear end, so I'm going to get the 1.5" AAL to match up with the TSB from Toyotec. I plan on doing the install with the help of a mechanic buddy of mine and taking it in for an alignment afterwards.

What is everyone's thoughts on this lift set up? Good/Bad?

Before I start the install, do I need to order anything else? I don't want to have to make several trips to the store or have to wait on any other parts to arrive once I start the install.

Also, I found the discount code to order the Bilsteins. Does anyone know of a discount for toyotec?

Thanks in advance for the assistance!

You should be fine..But I haven't put a lift on a toyota. My friend with his f150 had to make a lot of trips to northern tool for ball joint removers..ect. I think you should be fine..do you have a store like that near by just in case?

from all the numerous threads i've seen w/ pics of 5100's on different settings...it looks like with the 1.75 setting and the tsb, your truck would be level (might even still be .5" higher in rear) . If you add a 1.5" AAL to that, you'll have quite a bit of rake because you'll be 1.5"- 2" higher in the rear. If that's the look you're going for, then have at it!

I hope that helps...and good luck w/ the install.

TSB's are fixes for known problems issued by Toyota to their dealerships . If you have a problem that has a TSB issued for it , it will be repaired under warranty .
