Toytec Coils with 5100's

When installing toytec coilovers with 5100's, What setting should the shocks be at to get the 3 inch lift??

The shock itself should be at the stock setting, lowest notch. Unless you have the pre assembled, then they are already put together for ya. I think the instructions said 2.5" of thread showing was 3" but I got way more lift than I wanted. I ended up lowering them to 1.75" thread on the collars and they gave me about 2.5-3" of total lift.

Ya, that worked for me. I'm sitting at 38.5" from ground to fender with 33" km2s. I wanna see some picks when you done. I really like this set up. There's a street on my way home I hit everyday and everyone slows down for the narly bump but not me......the rebound compression feels so great. Small bumps are still there and noticeable but the bigger hits you can really feel the suspension absorbing everything! Good luck.

The Toytec coils are just an Eibach coil (1.6 inch lift) The highest setting on the 5100's you can use is the 0.85 setting, but you will only see 2-2.45 inches of lift depending on your truck (4x4, or prerunner/ reg cab, ex cab or d-cab). I am currently looking into this set up, and have read a bunch of threads on this subject. Hope this helps.

I think the OP was talking about the coilovers that are height adjustable. These are also eibach springs but with an adjustable collar at the bottom. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Hmmm, I assumed he was talking about the 5100's with the spring because he asked what setting...

Well to be clear I have the toytec (red) adjustable coilovers (not assembled), and I'm putting the 5100s on them. Should the shock be at 0' or what?

If it is the same spring as the eibach/ toytec one you can set it at 0.85...that is what I heard from Toytec. You will get approx 2 inches of lift on your d-cab.
