Yes I do like them, It rides stiffer but in a good way! I just wish I had the money for new coils and UCA'S. My understanding is that makes the world as opposed to the town of difference. I will get some pics when I get some time today.


I just noticed that my UCA is now much much close to the tire about 1 1/2-2 inches. Is this normal for stock UCA and Coils?

Nice, glad you like them! Your stock uca's should be fine w/5100's @1.75. I hear anything over 2.5 is hit or miss, some people need them and other don't. Enjoy!

Thanks for the reply. I am not seeing any issue with the current set up I will get some pics this weekend. My issue lies with getting 265 tires and the extra width that comes with it.

I want to say around 2 to 2.5 inches. Hard to remember. Putting the larger rims and tires may have made it look more.

Yes your tires and rims probably added a full inch of not a little more.

I have yet to see a 4" leveling kit, not saying they don't have em though. What lift are you talking about? I assume the advertised amount of lift is what you will get. What's confusing? Is it the fact that the spacers actual thickness gives more lift i.e. Toytec .5" spacer actually gives .75". If the advertised amount of lift is 2" the spacer won't be 2" thick. There is info about it if you search. I can't remember the conversion. Some one may jump in who knows.
