If you do want a little extra lift you can get the toytec .25 and the .5 wich should give you a extra 1/2" thats what i did. My truck sits level and I'm sitting around 2.25 higher. Your love the ride either way.

Well, my Eibach coils and Blistein 5100's came in today, gonna install them tomorrow with the shocks set at 0. Then I am scheduled to have the rear spring TSB at the dealer performed Monday - so I'll get a free alignment

Front coils and billy's installed. Took 3 hours start to finish with the help of a strut spring compressor loan-a-tool from AutoZone. Very straightforward and it went very well. I love the new stance and getting the rear TSB tomorrow!

Ok, so I had the rear TSB spring pack installed and love the ride. Eibachs up front with 5100's at 0. But I either got a little more lift out of the coils (it's a PreRunner) or not as much lift as expected in the rear, because the front is about 1/2" higher than the rear. I don't really like the bro-lean and was wanting to add another inch or so to the rear.

Question: should I install a 1.5" AAL or just a set of 1" blocks, since I'm only really needing an inch?

I measured after my lift was installed and had no lean at all on the drivers side.. Idk if i do when i get in the drivers seat, but i only weigh 155 and am usually hauling the gf so i'm not to worried about it.

I've got the 1.6" Eibach's with the 5100's at .85 on front. 1.5" AALs with 5100s on the rear. Levels the truck and a total lift of 2-2.5"

LOVE the ride! Better than stock. Firmer without being harsh.

I have the same set up waiting to be put on. Eibachs/5100 at .85 in front. 2" toytec long aal and 5100 in the back. No uca yet Hopefully i wont need them. Ill eventually Install some aftermarket ucas. Can't wait for this weekend to put it on. Hopefully the Ride is as niice as I hope it will be hearing from all your guys reviews.

Is the ride going to be firmer than my stock trd off road setup? Hopefully not too harsh or bouncy.

hard to explain....its not sloppy, but it wont be as abrupt and jarring as stock IMHO.
