Leveling kit suggestions needed

I have a 2010 Tacoma Off Road that is stock at this time. I am considering having it leveled or possibly an inch of lift in the rear and the front leveled out. I don't want to do anything to change the geometry or function of the truck. What would you guys suggest? Thanks

Sorry, I worded it wrong. I should have said that I want to make minimal changes so that I don't have to make any extra changes. Forgive me for not knowing the proper terminology or methodology, as I really don't have much knowledge about this type stuff. Thanks for the suggestions.

So, all I would need to do is put the 5100's on the front and tune them to the proper height and leave the rear alone? I won't need any extra add on's or whatever to compensate for any changes? Thanks

The 5100s have 4 different height settings; stock, 0.85", 1.75", and 2.5". Some people experience alignment issues at the 2.5" setting, keep them below that and you should be just fine.

5100's are a nice ride. I run them with Eibach coils and they provide a great ride. Slightly stiffer than stock. The Eibach springs lift the front end 1.6" . This should put you very close to level.

After reading 3454695094580 posts recommending the 5100s I have but 1 question. How do you adjust the height setting once installed? Dumb question, but thanks

You have to take the whole assembly out and have it adjusted somewhere unless you have a coil spring compressor.
