He said he wanted alittle bit of lift. Setting it at 1.75 will only level the truck.

front: 5100s .85 with eibach coils diff drop kit
eibach coils give you 1.6 on a 2nd gen
Rear: aal or new springs
my brother has this and he was still in spec for alignment
you will have about 2.25'' lift after it settles

I don't think you will like your 5100 set any higher than .85

Arent they designed to set them higher given you compress the coils to do so and loose down travel.

If he intends to wheel his truck a lot he should buy a good lift kit rather than try to put one together on a smaller budget.

He said that he wants to level the truck. Setting it at 1.75 with the ~0.5 inch lift from the TSB is about level. If more lift is wanted, then 2.5 with the 1.5 AAL will be closest to level.

Setting the 5100s at 0.85 with the Eibach coils is safe. Many, many people run that set up. It's not advised to go over 0 with OME coils because they are longer.

Finish of that sentence is level the truck "and give it alittle bit of lift."

u r right, my bad. Is that something new as of this year. I don't remember my brothers rear shocks being adjustable, toytec said he had to have the 1.5 aal to lift the truck the shocks alone would not do it. I was told that he could lift his truck up to 2'' then he would have to go with a longer shock 5125.

Have no idea. When I was looking at blisten a whole set came up and said front 0-2.5 and rear 0-1 probably new.

The rear 5100s can be adjusted? News to me if they can. I was under the impression that the 0-1" was the amount of lift they can be used with to allow enough travel. Anything more, you'd have to go to a longer shock to get enough down travel.
