Will this level my truck?

1.5 TSB AAL (Rear 5100's).........I only have 3 leafs right now.
Bilstein 5100's @ .85
Eibach Coils

^^^will this be completely level?^^^

***If not, how can I make it level, but keeping it under 3" so I don't have to purchase UCA's.***

yes and add a small lift if i'm not mistaken, around 1.75 up front if you set the billies at .85.(with eibach) glad you chose the springs. less preload on your struts

Shouldn't it be more? I thought the Eibach coils added 1.6" + 85" (billies) = (total) 2.45 (2.5 rounded)

I thought the Eibachs gave a lift of 1.6" just themselves.. so 1.6 + .85 setting would sit around 2.5" up front.

Edit: The OP beat me

no, but if you set your strut to the next setting, 1.75, and added the eibach, then it would be the 2.5. eibach adds .85. not the billies. billies are what you set them to. i think you just have it backwards.

billies @0 plus eibach =.85 lift
billies at .85 plus eibach = 1.6-1.7 lift
billies at 1.75 plus eibach =2.5 lift

.....i think this is right,

I just looked at the toytech website and it said Eibachs give you 1.6". Can anyone confirm this 100%?

No the eibachs have 1.6" of lift (http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72)

the billies @ 0 is stock height with stock coils.

Edit: OP beat me again HA!

I dont think it does.. Toytec sells a Non-TSB AAL. Or you could try to get the TSB which would add another .75 - 1 in the rear

I'm just trying to completely level it but also add a could of inches. I want to keep it under 3" so that I don't have to deal with UCA's. Any suggestions?

ETA: I don't want spacers or spindles haha

I think the 1.5 AAL and the Eibachs / billies @ .85 will do the trick.

Although your a regular cab so I think you'll get a little more lift too

Ha - Yeah DC = 4 doors. Your little thing under your avatar says regular cab.

Then yes I would go with the eibachs @ .85 with a 1.5 AAL. This should give about 2.5" lift and "level" (which is defined very differently in here)

Perfect! my definition of level is the same length (front and back) from center cap to top of the wheel well. Same for you?
