thinking about a "lift"

5100's set at 2.5
and a 1.5 AAL (toytech or procomp)(suggest another?)

i have a 11' TRD offroad prerunner
im trying to level the truck and also lift it a little just for some clearance,

so my question is, is there anything i need to worry about?


anything to look out for? problems?

just thought to ask you guys first before diving in

ANY thoughts, opinions, complaints welcome

How are 5100's not a lift


At 2.5" you may need new ucas to get your alignment into spec.

well its not a full blown lift, while it does raise the truck i dont really consider it a "lift" lift, as opposed to 3" 6" etc.
and ive heard that your fine with the stock UCA's untill around 3" but its debate amongst here

It's way more of a "lift" than any 6" drop bracket...

x2 on what KPT says. at 2.5 you MIGHT need UCA's. All depends on the individual truck. Some do, some dont. Thats why I went with 1.75" and the rear spring TSB which is about an 1". You might want to look into if the rear spring TSB is out there for the '11s. If so, its a free rear lift and will improve the ride and load capacity of your truck.

The alignment shop won't be able to get you in spec.

For a minute, I thought you had measured your truck. And were telling us you had the eleven foot long version, as in whether it was short or longbed. And then I wondered how you chopped the bed to get it to eleven feet, but didn't add a lift yet!
