5100 lift questions

I have a 2012 double cab TRD Off Road edition and I will soon be ordering 5100's for my entire truck. I hate to say it but I doubt that I do much off roading, just want to have a truck that looks good and will ride close to stock on the highways, which is where I do most of my driving. I do have a few questions:

1. I'm going to go with some 16x8 Method Double Standard Wheels and 265/75/16 Goodyear DuraTracs. I want to go 1.75 to level out my truck. I was told that I should order these Camburg UCA's:

http://camburg.com/store/05-12-taco/...nt-upper-arms/

My question: Do I need to order UCA's for my truck, and if so, what are brand suggestions? Someone on here told me that the Camburg UCA's won't help my ride.

2. I was also told that I should install a differential drop. I have read mixed reviews on them. Opinions?

3. I have seen some people install 5100's and end up with a bro lean. Is this something that happens from time to time? Any way to avoid it?

4. Are there any other suspension components that I'm forgetting?

Thanks for any input!

1)When you lift your front to 1.75, you don't need new UCAs. Your stock ones should be fine.
2)Differential drop doesn't do anything to our 2nd gen.
3)Every truck is different. From what I've seen, with the front at 1.75, your nose will be a little higher. A tad higher. You can either set your 5100s down to .85, run a rear block (not recommended), or run an AAL.
4) You'll want a 1/4" top plate spacer to correct the driver side lean.

Seems like a thousand different suggestions for every set up. 2012 DCLB Sport, 5100's set @ 2.5'' with stock coils and TSB rear is what I run and it sits level. Stock UCA's and alignment in spec. No diff drop, no vibes.

Does anyone have the specs for that spacer plate? I run a CNC waterjet and could cut my own for free... Thanks

I don't know but you can probably email Toytec about it.

Could you explain the TSB process you went through? I have read threads on it, but still don't quite understand it.

Went to look at the truck before purchase, asked them if they could take care of it before papers were signed and they did. It's just something that you'd have to talk to the dealer about. they should do it no problem if it's under warranty. If not I'd just go with some Dakars or Alcans.

Boone Taco, Any cutting needed for your 285's with only using 5100"s @2.5 in the front? I have a 2013 DC and I really want to just throw 5100's @ 2.5 and some 285's and call it done...

covered many times. You will need to cut some plastic. Maybe do the cab mount chop too depending of how bad it rubs. Its easy as fuck though

Yeah, I see different results all over the place. Just asking what you did, more importantly, did you do the cab mounts?
