5100/eibach...tsb and/or AAL?????

hi,

i've searched and thought i had it nailed down to what i needed but now after some more searching on here i'm more confused than ever.

I have 5100/eibachs waiting to install. I want to run them with the bilsteins set at .85 with the eibach coils.

I want my rtuck to be level or just a slight slight rake (definitly not nose high).

I'm going to get some 5100s for the rear.

here's my question.....

what do i need for the rear?

who the tsb alone level the truck or would it be nose high?

would a 1.5" or 2.0" aal make it level? If i use a aal should i get the tsb done or just us a aal?

If i get the tsb done and use a aal, would i have a big rake? (remember i looking for as close to level as possible).

*also, one last question a little off topic.....is it a big deal if i don't run a 1/4" taco lean spacer on the 5100/eibach set-up?

lastly, i'm trying to not buy new uca's right now, so would i be better off setting the bilsteins at 0 when using the eibachs?


sorry about all the questions but my head is spinning.....

thanks for any help!!!!

Nose high

would a 1.5" or 2.0" aal make it level? If i use a aal should i get the tsb done or just us a aal?

1.5" with no tsb would be almost perfectly level

If i get the tsb done and use a aal, would i have a big rake? (remember i looking for as close to level as possible).

Yes

*also, one last question a little off topic.....is it a big deal if i don't run a 1/4" taco lean spacer on the 5100/eibach set-up?

No big deal if you don't mind your truck leaning to the side a little bit

lastly, i'm trying to not buy new uca's right now, so would i be better off setting the bilsteins at 0 when using the eibachs?

It will be hit or miss at 2.45" (0.85" + 1.6") with the UCA's. Some need them, some don't at that height.

sorry about all the questions but my head is spinning.....

thanks for any help!!!!

Im rocking 5100/eibach at .85 and 1.5 aal. W/out the spacers and no aal I was slightly nose high if not level. But as soon as u throw something in the back, I would be nose high. Yes, there is rake with my current setup. But, the truck still sits nice with a bed full of camp gear.

Close to factory rake. Yes,tsb. Yes, light racing uca's. The coil isolators that I am selling will be the happy medium between 0 and .85. Its pretty much like having 1/4" spacer on each side. Check my sig for link. It might be what u are looking for in order of being slightly raked with tsb and 5100@0 and eibach.

I am running Billies on all 4's .85 in the front on Eibach Coils and just the TSB in the rear (no AAL). With 275/70/17 tires i sit almost 1" higher in the rear than the front.. I believe its like 38 1/4" in the front and 39 1/4" in the rear. I love the ride..
