This will only lift the front of your truck, since rear 5100s aren't designed provide lift, only to accomodate that which is provided thru other means (e.g., new leaf springs).

I'll also echo what 08pretaco said - the best deal around for 5100s is at DownSouth Motorsports, since they offer a discount to TacomaWorld members and FREE shipping.

I had this lift for a couple of months and decided to buy some Old Man Emu coils. I like the OME set up a little better myself, but you'll get 10 different answers from 10 different people. The Bilsteins are great to level, the OME will lift a little with an AAL.......all comes down to personal preference (you're going to get a lot of "search is your friend" and "search" replies to your post but here is one answer)

Recommend you spend some time learning about your options. There are a multitude of threads on this topic, but the best place to start is probably here.

Armed with that information, you'll be better-able to weigh those options. You won't be able to replace coils, leafs, and shocks for $300-$500. A reasonable alternative might be one of these setups from Toytec. The experts at Wheeler's Off-Road or DownSouth Motorosports, both of which offer discounts to TacomaWorld members, can advise you on your specific needs.
