help with 5100 lift?

I know i know, search. Well I did, but i wanna just make sure I have things right before I have my brother commit. He wants a 2inch ish lift on his taco.

Should he get the Blistein 5100 front and rear? and then also get AAL's to bring the back up like 2 inch?

My question is would this work out well, and what AAL's to get? Pro Comp? And would there be any other things needed?

I just installed the 5100 shocks with factory coils. A lot of members are getting these with the eibach coils. As to which AAL, I would call DownSouth Motorsports. They were a huge help in getting my sh*t done.

BTW, nice truck!

have you considered grabbing eibach coils for his truck? those, paired with front/rear 5100s and toytec's AAL will get you 2" on a 2nd gen

Alot of people use Eibach coils with the 5100's so you can set them at 0 and have a smoother ride. As for the AAL I used a 2 inch toytec with my OME lift and it gave me a slight rake (which I like) You could go for the TSB AAL and get 1 1/2 inch lift in the rear.

Don't get a diff drop if it's a 2nd gen.

I went with 5100's all around, Eibach coils up front and the 1.5" Icon 3-leaf Progressive AAL for the rear. The 3-leaf AAL is more expensive but comes with new u-bolts and centering pins so you don't have to reuse the old ones or worry about breaking them if they're rusted on. If you remove the overload leaf, you'll get 1.5" of lift, if you leave it in you'll get 2" of lift.

5100's alone will work and will ride fine, aftermarket coils will stiffen the ride up and make it ride like a new truck.

Sounds good.
1 question does he have 3 o4 leafs in the rear now?
If 3 leafs those 5100s will work fine.
If 4 leafs those 5100s will be too short. He will need to get the longer ones.
0" to 1.5" Rear Lift on NON-TSB leaf springs, Shock Part #: BE5-C478-T0
Extended Length: 22.94"
Collapsed Length: 14.02"

3" to 4" Rear Lift Shock Part #: BE5-B110-T5
Extended Length: 27.28"
Collapsed Length: 16.34"

That'll work. What does your brother do with his truck? If he's a serious off roader, you might want to talk to a suspension guy about the rear 5100's. They will work with those AALs but if you constantly flex out your rear, they will top out and may eventually blow.

Try Downsouth Motorsports, they are a vendor on here and have great prices (even a discount for TW members). They have the Icon 3-leaf AAL cheaper than your site and are competitive with the Bilsteins. You have a good price for the Eibachs, the only other place I've see then sold through is Toytec. DSM does not carry the Eibach coils.

To simplify things, I would try to get most of the package from one vendor like Toytec.
I think that Toytec will price-match.
Also there is a Tacoma World discount code for Toytec.

That AAL is for the TSB spring pack, but should work with the standard (3 leaf) pack, if you're sure that's what you want for lift.

Not to hijack his thread but, so you can do 5100's in front only and AAL in the rear to obtain about 1.5"? Or do you "need" 5100s all around?

This sounds like THE least expensive way to lift it a bit. THEN, I can start dreaming about bigger wheels/tires....

Yes. No you don't need 5100's in the rear.

You do not NEED 5100's in the rear but they will dampen the ride much better than the stock shocks. If you're lifting on a budget, this set-up will work though.

He'll be fine with the standard length 5100's. I'm running 2" of lift in the rear with standard length 5100's and have not topped them out yet. I only do minor trail riding and mostly pavement.
