3in lift

i want to do a 3in lift for my 09 trd double cab short bed. i tow once in a while 3500lbs boat and i dont ever do any REAL offroading. its also my daily driver. i was looking at the $650 set from toytec which has the 3in springs shocks struts and leafs. is that way more than what i need? is there a way of doing it cheaper but still having a normal functioning truck?

5100s all around would be better and aal rear your set, keep it under 3" if you dont want to replace ucas.

I have pretty much the same setup that you mentioned in your original post. Don't off road my truck much at all. Tow a boat from time to time and it's my daily driver for my all highway commute to work. No complaints. I did get UCA's though as well.

So if I set the front 5100s at 2.5" what size AAL should I get? 2" or the 1.5"?

Depends. Do you want to keep some rake or level it? Go 1.5 if you want a more level look.

2"..

be aware you might bottom out your shocks on the rear with 5100s.. there has been mixed responses on this site about this.

I'm getting 5100's set @ .85 with Eibach coils to make it 2.5". I'm going to get the 2" AAL because it will sag a little bit over time to be just about level. You will keep the factory rake when you put it on. I'm also thinking about buying a 1/4" spacer to bring it a little bit more towards level all while keeping it under 3" to prohibit me from needing new UCAs. Hope this helps.

Check out this build. It has 5100's @ .85 with Eibachs and 2" AAL

I'm a noob when it comes to this stuff. Someone had mentioned the same thing on a thread i made. I was wondering if you could explain that a little to me.

thanks

Well I don't know off first hand experience since I've never owned 5100's. I do have a 2.75" spacer in the front and a 2" block in my rear. When I go over speedbumps or any sudden bumps that are big enough to cause my leafs to droop enough, my shocks bottom out in the rear because they are not long enough. This is on stock shocks.

Now.. the measurements on 5100s and stock shocks are the same so IMO they will also bottom out. Yyou will find that alot of people have 5100s and dont have problems with them but some do.

Anyways 5100s seamed too risky for me so I ordered the 5100s extended travel for my truck and they are plenty long enough, maybe a little bit too long and if thats the case i will just make my bumpstop 1/2" longer.
