Toytec just came out with the pre built 5100/eibach combo. Looks pretty sick. Add a good leaf back and your golden.

Sounds like alot of OME fans.

I've got a DCLB with OME Dakar springs and 885 coils in front.. Drives better than my old stock 4cyl.
2 things I'm not happy with.. how much rake it has (no spacer) and the Dakar springs just started making noise.

Anyone have comments on the ride with a spacer up front?
Thinking about going with a different setup in the front to try and level it. Not sure what that might be yet.

i just purchased the Icon Stage 4 kit, billet arms, from 4wheel parts they have good customer service and work with the prices. i purchased mine through one of their "Jeep and Truck Fest" events and saved some good money. i also bought new method wheels and Toyo 305's that they also cut me a deal on. but definitely shop around and see what the best price is.

There's some groundbreaking info covered in this thread........

Anyway, my 2 cents is Bilstein 5100's and Eibach coils in the front and an AAL in the rear; that and the OME lift are the two most popular on Toyotas b/c they're cheap and effective. The Bilstein vs OME is just like Nike vs Adidas/Windows vs Mac/etc...they're both great lifts and pretty much the same. Moral: there's no sense in spending bukus of money on a simple 3" lift, when you can get it done for around $500
