5100's really are one of those "best bang for buck" kind of items

Just double checked.

The 5100 fronts came from downsouth motorsports and were 200$ shipped. (I regret not getting the whole kit of 4 for 300$)

The 3 leaf add a leaf came from wheelers offroad, and they were about 175$ shipped.

So I have about 375$ shipped into my suspension. I suggest dropping the extra hundred bucks and get all 4 5100s at the same time.

Try these http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits...FTJp7AodrAEArQ
For the price you can't go wrong and if they dont work you aren't out much. I know a few guys that run these, not on Tacomas but it serves their purpose and keeps the ride factory like.

AAL? 5100?
Exactly what are these? I'm kinda new here, and would also like to raise my 06 TRD Doublecab about 2" without getting into megabucks...

AAL's are an acronym for Add-A-Leaf(to the rear leaf pack,should have three or four depending on model-year),it has several uses,,increasing load capacity, leveling, or lifting, larger tires, and possibly smoothing out the ride depending on configuration. The 5100's are the Bilstein shocks, again used for same reasons...I suggest you save your lunch money and buy 4 Bilsteins(Billies), 2 Eibach coils, an AAL, or progressive pack,some Nitto Trail Grappler's and find something not asphalt to drive on ....Then I will tell you about Total Chaos UCA's....Baby steps...That is all... #enjoy

Eibach springs, 5100s set at .85 and aal in rear will give about 2.5" lift and you still should be in spec for alignment with stock ucas. At least my brothers truck was and looks great.

Well, finding something other then pavement to drive on is no problem, since I live 3 miles from the nearest asphalt, on gravel roads and a logging road...
