Not sure what to do on lift.

Well i was planning on getting some bilsteins and spindles for my 02 prerunner to get about 5.5 inches of lift but i was thinking...Is there any way possible to get eibach coils and bilsteins and crank the shocks to 2.5 and have 5.5 inches of lift that way? Itd probably be too much weight on UCA though so i was wondering if i got some of those then itd be possible? not sure though.

No, it doesn't work like that. When you put A 5100 and adjust it to 2.5" setting, that's how far it will go in height. Plus, if you want to achieve longer than 3" of lift you will either need A spindle (as you mentioned above) or A drop bracket, due to the LCA angles.

That makes sense....Thanks for the help

But is 3 the highest i could go without having to do spindles or DB? I emailed the only company that makes spindles for 1st gen and there 1450!!! Didnt expect quite that high but im still debating on it and just trying to find out some options

Yes 3" is the highest you can go without A DB or Spindles. Ever thought about just getting an OME lift for roughly 700$ and get 3" of lift? You will get a great ride... 285s with A 3" lift on our trucks look perfect...
