New Lift

Hey guys, I have bought the items required to do my first lift & would like to get thoughts on my purchase. I have researched ALOT since first getting my truck, and have read the good/bad etc with each type of lift etc. I know I will get negative comments about what I chose for the front (2.5" spacer) but I got it through Fat Bob's and it has a lifetime guarantee, so I figured being as I don't go "wheeling" with my 2wd Pre-runner, and wanted it more for looks & clearance I should be just fine. The lift comes with a 2" AAL in the rear & I bought some rear OME shocks to go with it. I will get some 885's and front OME shocks in the future to enhance the ride but for now I think my set-up will work just fine. If I was to be going off road alot, I would not have got the spacer, period. Thanks for your feedback ahead of time!

Scratch the spacers, going with the 5100's set to -0- with OME 885's. That should give me a GREAT ride from what I've read on here.

Thanks, I heard the Eibach coils work better with the 5100's and being set at .85 will put it at 2.5" lift. I am trying to avoid the $400 for new UCA's but will evaluate it after the lift has been installed and make my decision then. If I need em, I'll get em. Also, with the 2" AAL I'm putting in the back with OME shocks, I might just finally be content with this set-up. Oh, and I'll be getting new Nitto 265/70/17 A/T's to go with it, stoked! The Mod bug has bitten, no doubt...

If I had a 2 wheeler, I would have installed a spindle drop. This raises the truck and there is no need for new shocks or springs.

They have spindle drop kits for motorcycles?? I'm pretty sure my truck has 4 wheels.

Oops. I mean spindle lift. You replace the front spindles with a set that are lower which lifts the front end of the truck. Then use an AAL on the rear. Do a search on here for spindle lift.
