Bilsteins at 2.5" and stock rear suspension

Guys, I have a 2013 trd sport 4x4 dcsb. I got the billies for the front and did the adjustment to 2.5". I left the rear as stock. Has anyone else done this? Any problems with it. I don't care that the ride is stiffer, just don't want to jack anything up. The billies at this height make my truck ride about 0.5" nose high, but barely noticeable. Please, give me feedback.

You will be fine if you don't mind the front higher than the rear.

Many people say that Bilstein's at 2.5'' with stock springs is not very healthy for the truck, but I know a lot of people run this setup anyway and no one's died yet.

You should have some pretty epic bro lean though.

If you were able to get the front alignment within spec then no, not really, you may notice some vibration from the front and there are threads about that here

At 5100's set at 2.5 with stock springs there is no way to get the alignment within stock specs. Camber and toe can be done within stock specs but caster will be way off. I have 5100's at 2.5 and stock coils, my caster is way off, thats why I got Light Racing UCA's sitting on my coffee table waiting to be put on...
