With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

that pretty much covers it. You should consider new Upper control arms, and new front shocks for the best performance.

The "5100" Bilstiens are a MUCH better shock than the factory OEM Bilstiens, and are a good upgrade. They can be found at Downsouth Motorsports.
For the UCA's, most people are running Total Chaos.

I have the Bilstein 5100s, the Toytec Bilstein Coilovers and the Light Racing UCAs from Toytec. Sonny from DownsouthMotorsports sells the Bilstein shocks (I think most of us bought from him). He is a member on this board. Send him a PM.

The adjustable coilover kit doesn't work with the stock shocks.

Yeah, that's Downsouth Motorsports. Great guys. I bought mine off him as well as A LOT of other people here... I believe Sonny's partner is also a member of this forum.

If you go with the adjustable coilovers from ToyTec, then yes, they have to be replaced because they don't work with the stock shocks.

Another option are the 5100s with the stock coils (up to 2.5" of lift) or I think you can use the stock shocks with the OME springs. However, it's recommended to replace the shocks with the springs because you're gonna get a better ride.

From toytec website:

299 for the lift
289 Front OME shocks
30 Diff Drop
169 Rear OME shocks
20 Axle Shims
70 Extend SS Brake Lines

that's 877 bucks so far

but it depends what shocks you go with and I didnt even put UCAs on there...

You dont need the extended brake lines. With a little tug, the bracket can be positioned perfectly.
