Question for those with Eibachs/5100s set at 0

I'm about to order the 5100s and Eibach coils. I'll be setting the 5100s at 0 to get the best ride. I DO NOT have the rear TSB so my question is which AAL will I need to maintain the the factory rake, with the rear being higher than the front? 1.5 inch? 2 inch?

Also, any pics of this set-up would be greatly appreciated!!

2 inch because it will settle some, but check out the new thread from Toytec already preassembled and everything. Same setup your going for just a little better/easier

Thanks trdtaco for the quick response. Are these the ones you're talking about? http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/toy...over-sale.html I don't want to raise the front that much. I'm going for just the lift the Eibach coils provide.

Just guessing based on my situation. I have Eibachs and Billy's set to zero and TSB springs and a topper out back. With the topper my rig now sits ever so slightly nose high, so I'm going to add the 1.5" Toytec AAL to get a tiny bit rake so I don't get anymore nose high when loaded.

Since you don't have the TSB leaf springs, but also don't have (I'm assuming) the extra 200+ pounds of topper that I do, I think you'll probably still end up nose high like mine, and the 2 " Toytec AAL for non-TSB springs will get you level or slightly ass high.

Hope that helps

You can check my gallery for before and after Bilstein pics, but I don't have the AAL yet.

I seem to have factory rake, even with a hundred pound tool box, and tools in it.

Ride is smoother than factory trd offroad....it has great on and offroad manners now.

Did you remove your overload leaf when you added the AAL ? Was the install pretty straightforward...have any do's or don'ts ? thanks !

I'd go with a 1.5". I currently have billys set at .85/Eibachs and rear non tsb 2" aal. With this combo, I have a noticeable rake.

About the new "budget" coilovers toytec is offering. They are set at 0.85 with a 0.5" top plate spacer. You could knock em down to 0 for the better ride you are looking for but know this...

New coilovers are $550

Front 5100s are $180

Eibach coils are $150

Top plate spacers are $60

It's $160 cheaper to buy everything seperately?

Okay guys, I'm going to order the eibachs, 1/4 inch spacer plate and 2 inch AAL from Toytec asap. I have to call DSP later this week and get an update on the 5100s but is there anything I'm missing to complete my lift? Did anybody purchase the front shock bushing replacement kit when installing the 5100?

Nope! I just have 5100s and OME 885, no spacers. But, my buddy did the 1/2" on drivers side and 1/4" on passenger.
