THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 5100'S AND STOCK

so i came out of the gym today and there was another tacoma parked beside me. i thought it would be a perfect opportunity to show those who are on the fence about 5100's the difference. sorry for the cell phone pics but they aren't too bad.

my truck is a 2012 trd sport with 5100's all around, fronts set to 1.75" and 1" blocks in the back. i've got 265/70/R17 duratracs for tires.

hope this helps some people......

Not much difference hard to tell you did anything more than add tires.

so at 1.75 on the 5100s how much lift at the flare did you get. maybe from hub to flare as well. but i believe your tires are bigger than stock. thanks

1.75" isn't very much.

How is the ride compared to the stock suspension? I'm sure it's a bit stiffer but is it bad?
I don't want a harsh stiff ride but I would like to get the front end level with the rear.

thanks, the ride is a little bit stiffer than stock (the front that is, back seems the same) but i don't really notice it, and the roads where i live are absolutely brutal with cracks, holes, dirt, ice, snow, basically barely a step up from a gravel road.

Your truck looks absolutely perfect, it's exactly the kind of set up Im looking for. My only question now is, will this set-up negativly effect the drive shafts for the rear and front for the 4wd? Thanks, your input is greaty appreciated!

thank you. i have had this setup for two months now and have had ZERO vibrations, axle wrap from the 1" blocks or any other type of issue in two wheel or four wheel drive. i don't think there is really that big of a difference from stock since it's such a minor lift.

Did you get the shocks local in the peg, or did you order online? That's pretty much the exact setup I'm looking at for mine.

i tried to get them around here but most shops didn't even believe me there was such thing as an adjustable shock/strut, and the ones that said they could get them quoted me no less then $650 for all four. i ordered them from essex in vancouver.
http://www.bilsteincanada.com/
$476 shipped and not even a week to get here. good guys.
you could get them through downsouthmotors i think they're called on this site but i didn't know of them when i got mine and was happy to stay in canada anyway.

Nice truck, I seen the snow and then realized you're from winterpeg, so had to post, not many prairie boys on here. Actually just held a door open at shell the other day for a manitoban I see you look level with a one inch block added? So you must not have the tsb leafs? Mine was level with no rear lift at 1.75 and sr5 coils with tsb leaf, but it might have settled I guess since it (leaf) has been on since new.

Anyway, I'm rambling.....wanna trade hoods and front clips? oooo and headlights too

It's been -40 here for a while now....taco still starts without being plugged in

hey thanks. the 2012 sports come with the 4 leaf pack so i don't need the tsb. it actually was level when i measured it, i just thought it looked like it was a little nose high and even felt a bit like i was pointing into the sky when i was driving it, so i threw in the 1" blocks. feels and looks perfect now with them in.

Okay, One more question....yeah, right LOL., Did you use Aluminum Blocks for the rear and if so, how are they holding up? I'd like to get a lifetime use out of my lift gear!

i used these, http://www.readylift.com/c-117-toyot...2-2wd-4wd.aspx they are cast iron, it has only been two months, so far so good. i have heard that aluminum blocks are better to use though.
