I've done all my research, saved up some money, and I'm ready to lift my 2012 DCSB TRD OR. The plan is to go with a very mild 1.5 in lift to increase ground clearance and give a little more room for 265/75R16s to move around. For the front I'm going with 5100s set to zero and Eibach springs. The rear will be Wheelers HD 3 leaf AAL. My truck has the 2/1 leaf pack that has settled almost an inch since I put the camper shell on so this setup would maintain my current 1 in rake (20 front, 21 rear hub to fender). I like the look of the rake plus I load up several hundred pounds of gear in the back from time to time so maintaining the rake is a priority.
Toytec has been backordered on Eibach springs for several months now, and they "expect" to have them in the first week of April and can ship the second week. Normally I would continue to wait, but I have some vacation time coming up in just over a week that will allow me the free time to install the lift myself. I figured I would just go with 883s, but Toytec recommends against them with the 5100s and I don't want to pay the premium for OME shocks. Plenty of users on here have 5100s and 885 springs and they work just fine. I've searched on here to see if anyone has done 883s on a 2nd gen DC and only found one person...and they didn't keep them on very long enough to comment on height or ride quality.
So...do I take a chance on the 883s or wait for the Eibachs? Concerns would be that I won't get the full 1.5" lift out of them being a double cab. I only found one thread where someone did this combo and did not get the height they expected (but didn't post their numbers either). Also not sure if the 5100s not being valved for the spring makes more or less difference than normal with a shorter spring (versus 884 and 885s). Thoughts?
