5100 questions

Noob and need advice.

I have a 2001 Taco and need a new struts. I am not really a technical guy so any advice would be appreciated. I was looking at the Bilstein 5100 leveling struts and going all around with these and replacing the stock coils on the front.

I only wanted to get about one inch out of the struts are these my best options. Or should I go with another brand.

Also I have no idea what all would need to be changed out with the new struts. What other parts would I need?

What would also be the best coil spring set for the front?

Here is the problem. I am trying to do this all for under 400 or close to that.

Thanks for any help.

885's are for second gen tacomas. You want the 880 which will give you 1". Keep the 5100 at the 0" setting

If you just want to lift the front, you just need the 880's and 5100 shocks. You don't need anything for the rear as far as lift if you just want to level the front up
