5100s as a leveling kit.

Would just ordering 5100s up front on stock coils and stock rear act as a leveling kit set at 1.75?

Would I run into problems doing this?

Dude your in college; you should be better at research than this. Look at the suggested threads at the bottom of the page. Just make sure that you are looking at 1st gen stuff...

Do it! Thats what im doing, and i just got my 5100's the other day and saw pics, im doing 5100's all around and setting it at 1.75 in the front, the front will still be a 1/4 inch lower than the rear because the stock ride height is 20 inches for the front and 22 for the rear, the rear bilstiens wont change the rear ride height , it will stay at 22 inches and the front, when setting it at 1.75 will be 21.75, a 1/4 inch difference in the front, utilizing the 5100's is the most proper way to do a level on a tacoma

Hope my post helps, and no u wont run into problems , the billys are designed to work.with you oem springs, but the only thing i.was told ud run into a problem.is if u are putting the billys on a trd offroad tacoma, because the trd offroad runs a progressive front coil as opposed to the regular coil spring used on the base, sr5 and trd sport tacos, u want the normal spring when u use the 5100s because the progressive spring with the 5100s affects ride quality .. Hope this helps again

It depends where you measure from. I put a level on the frame and I was nose high, barely.

You can't measure hub to fender to judge levelness because the rear fenders are cut slightly higher than the fronts IIRC.

These high performance Bilstein front struts have 3 spring seat positions you can choose that provide approximately 0"-2.5" lift with your factory coils; the lowest notch provides a stock ride height, the second notch provides 1.25" lift and the top notch 2.5" approximate lift. We have some customers who run them with Old Man Emu Coils as well. Good for lifting, leveling or compensating for winches, snowplows, etc. Performance valved to provide better handling. Use with or without the rear shock set shown below. We can assemble coils on these for you, inquire if you need a cost on that. The struts don't come with new stem cushions or washers; you can re-use your existing cushions and washers or get new ones below.

I could definately tell standing back and looking at it. But I'm picky.

Many of the "leveled" trucks on here look nose-high to me.

@ everyone else Thanks for the help guys. Sorry for the confusion on my description it says 99 if you click it. My main question was just rather the rear bilsteins were needed if I was just goin to level and run a 32 inch tire. Thanks for all I you who were helpful.

@ green, dude just don't flame man it's so much easier to just ignore me haha it takes away from the thread and puts us off topic.

Sorry for the twitter reply. Again hard to multi quote with such a small screen
