How much lift did you get out of the Eibach's? Sounds like it was less than an inch. If that's the case, I'm sold!

I gained 2" with the Eibachs and 1/4" spacer. Rear TSB gain was about 1 3/8". Its been about 3 months and nothing has changed yet. Remember, this is a 4x2 so mileage may vary.

IMO it think it's best to be a little higher in the back for a truck. Especially if you use your bed at all.

agreed because there is a reason they made it that way at least on the prerunners. But I have a brush guard on the front and that would weight down the front alittle. I just don't want the ass end a mile higher than the front, where it is really noticeable.

And just to be totally clear you have done nothing other than get the rear TSB done to the back.

Rear TSB and 5100s, but there was no gain going from stock shocks to Bilstein 5100s.

Very nice ride with this set up. I had Billies set @ 2.5 with stock coil and it was pretty stiff, but OME is a softer ride imo.

Thank guys, now I'm going to have to choose between getting the OME or Eibach's, I'm for sure not gonna use the stock coils, because i would rather not preload the springs. I'll just use the coils to do the lifting. So now the new question get the OME's or Eiback's??
