Dont know what you have done, if anything yet, but i bought this for my 2002 you can go check it out, the ride is a little stiffer, but i think it makes it a little better riding, and driving wise, but i havent had any problems with it so far, been in for about a month now, and also the tow is what changed on mine after installing them.

I agree with what everyone has said above... the 5100's are great place to start, DSM is the place to get them for sure. Just got a set for my truck... still need to install though but I'm stationed away from home. Why spend 65 bucks now just to throw those spacers out a couple years down the road when you want to upgrade. Those 5100's are the best platform IMO to put other coilovers onto if you want in the future.... Lifetime warranty too thru Bilstien!

As implied above... if you are gonna do it, do it right.

Thumbs up

evryone here is right, you pay for what you get, hopefully this helps. keep in mind, this set was for a 2006.

Just drove down south today to Down South Motorsports and picked up a set of 5100's front and rears. With Ca tax $344.00. Good Price, either way, Marco, Sonny and crew were great to work with.Nice clean shop set up and seeing how clean and professional they operate. They took the time to answer all questions on suspension matters.

I look at it this way, They support Tacoma World, so I will give them the business.

And for those who are not close enough to pick up, they offer free shipping..

Your better off saving your money, and doing ti right. You save money by not having broken parts afterwards.

Eh, I can understand your thinking, but there is nothing wrong with a spacer lift really. I know guys that have some pretty serious off road experience that have never had a problem with them. I have had them on a few trucks and never had a problem either. People just need to understand what they are buying...

I have read SO many posts on here and seen SO many different opinions on this subject. I have a new 2012 Pre and have been shopping around and seeing if i can do a lift on a budget. I have to say that 9 out of 10 people say stay away from the spacers and spend the extra coin for the shocks if you plan to do any off roadin at all. If you're just a mall crawler the spacers might be enough for you. Seems like I have typed a ton of stuff to say nothing. At least I get credit for a post here. LOL. No seriously, I would have go with the majority and if you can afford it spend the extra bucks and DIRTFT (do it right the first time)

I had the spacer lift had no problems some mud,small rocks and sand with stock tires after when I got some interco super swamper tires(31x12.50) on 16x10 wheels with tons of traction offroad the stock shocks couldn't keep up bottoming out was horrible felt like the front clip was gonna fall off and I'm not talking about jumping or high speed hits just deep ruts and off camber sections.I'm glad I swapped out for Coilovers much better travel and truck doesn't have to work as hard offroad

Just looking to level out the 2009 regular cab. Currently have 31.5"s (265/70/17) and looking to upgrade to roughly 33"s (270/75/17). This leveling kit is only $65 with FREE shipping and i can install is and align after in my school auto shop with expertise, but i will be the one installing. Anyone have any opinions/experience with this company? Ride quality? I know the 5100's would be better but for now i cant afford it.
So what/how much lift did you end up going with? I'm going with a 2" front and i have 275/70r17s. They will still rub but i don't want to go over 2" because of alignment issues

so if you just put the 5100s in the front it will level out your truck and what if you have struts on the front, can you replace them with these shocks no problem

You can get up to 2.5" on the front and the rear ride height won't change from installing them there. You either need to install a add a leaf or block to do the rear. And yes an alignment is in need after the 5100's are installed.
