EDIT: I can't decide where to set everything, I think I want to do my eibach's with 5100s set at 0, with the 1/4" top plate spacer on the driver side, and then my rear set up with a 1.5" AAL, no TSB, and a 3/8" spacer on the drivers side to get rid of rear Taco lean. I have a DCSB 4x4, and hoping that this set up would sit level or close to level.
I am getting ready to install my lift kit on my 2006 TRD Off Road DCSB 4x4 this weekend. I have all the parts or they are on a UPS/FedEx truck to be here tomorrow, but I had a few questions.
I am going to take a look at all of my bushings front and rear, no plan to replace the, just inspect them and then replace the following weekend if needed. I also plan to put lots of anti seize grease on the bushings when I put it all back together.
Anyway, the questions I have is, since I will be under there and pulling a bit off my truck, is there anything else that I should be looking at, checking, greasing, inspecting or replacing? I know the old saying it it isnt broke dont fix it, but the truck has 100k miles on it, so there is always the potential to find worn out parts or somethings that should just be replaced instead of letting it go until failure and have to take it to a dealer and get bent over in parts and labor fees...
Also, how do you know how tight to make the nut on the front struts? I have read several install guides and threads but no one says how far down to tighten the top nut on the strut once the coil is compressed and the top plate and washers are installed...?
