With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I cant seem to get a straight answer on something. RidingonTRD, and I are installing the threaded adjusters on his Bilstien shocks, along with the Eibach springs. What setting and how many threads from the bottom show for a 2.5" lift?
Thanks, guys.

Thanks. I PM'ed him, but wanted to see if anyone else might know. The guy at Toytec didnt. We are doing this tomarrow morning, so I guess If I cant find the info, it will be trial and error.

Thanks, guys.
Chris,
Did you get the Toytec top plate? I've read on one thread that if you have it, you'll set the Bilstein to stock position but if you will be re-using the OEM one, you'll set Bilstein to 2nd position (0.85). Such different positions, will definitely affect the number of threads will show.

I have a bilstein right now and wanting to upgrade to Toytec C/O but still hesistant since I never heard of conclusive answers. I have no "buddy" to help me do trial and error. Good luck and please post what you find out.

no top plate, just the stock one. Toytec told me that the "C" clip on the 5100's needed to be on the bottom setting. I did some calculations and found that to be in error. longhorn gave me some good info, and it seems that Toytec has a few variants of this assembly, but I have an idea on how many threads need to be exposed. I will post up all of my findings.
