alright so 5100 all the way around, extended break lines, and wheel spacers. In terms of the rear can i just add a leaf to my stock set up instead of the whole leaf pack? Ive heard some bad things about the rear blocks but what do you think? I see a lot of people on here with the aal but will i get enough of a lift from them?

Does anyone have any links to the websites with these rear leafs or blocks? The OME site is the most non descriptive thing ive seen.

PM sent about the stock spindles.

You can do a 2" aal and a 1" block and save up for the leaf packs.

I dont know what phone you have but there is an app called craigsnotification and you input what you want it to find and it updates with all the hits. You can set it to different areas too so it makes it easier to find.

You don't have to do 5100's all the way around you can use stock shocks and springs toytec lifts has a 2.5" aal I think that will work fine I just have the tsb done and the tsb aal with 6 inches of lift up front with only the spindles and a aal you should be fine but its up to you

you dont have to get new shocks but it is highly advised, since you are extending all your suspension components your stock shocks will max out and bottom out and that will be limiting your travel. With new shocks ou ownt have to worry about that.

So with some how to's from here i can put the spindles, 5100s, and rear aal's all at once. Looks like thats what im going to do then. Ill post some pictures as soon as its done (hopefully in a few weeks after i get all the parts).

I would start out with the 5100's all around since you are on a budget. It will ride great until you want to upgrade to what yotadan said earlier.

With the spindle lift I would go with a 305 tire, looks much better than a 285 with a 4" lift.

You will need a spring compressor to do the front shocks. I would take the 5100's and front coilovers and have them swap the shocks for you. It's much faster an should be about $40. Then you just pop the coilover back in.
