This is Billy's at .85 with eibach coils if you set them at stock you could get your 1.5 (the coils are acutualy 1.6) and way better ride .. Stock in the rear atm

Thanks alot guys! I already bought the bilstein 5100 all around. Do you think buying OME dakar leafs springs and eibach coils would be a good combination with these billy's? will i need an alignment?

You can run the eibachs withe the setup you got without a leaf pack. Put front 5100s on the bottom notch and use the 1.5 aal with the coils it would only put you .1 higher up front..

And thanks still some things in the work for the truck but I like the bro lean lol don't care what anyone says

if you're going to lift the front more, you should get new coils rather than stacking a spacer
He's 2nd gen Cody, for 1" no issues, he'd be fine on stock shocks...

No, this is incorrect... You CAN run your stock shocks for a 1" lift on 2nd gen Tacomas.. 1st gens not so much

Only if the geometry changes (lifting or lowering)

really i heard its a bit better than the old stock ones. but im guessing rear ToyTec 1 1/2" Lift Add-a-leaf will do it since i just read that it will fit in non-TSB springs also.

Would I get the same look on a 1st gen with those? I'm looking at doing billies all around set at 1.75 in front and a 1.5" aal in the rear too but what I'm looking for is exactly how yours sits. Also 1.75 on the front with stock springs is safe on the parts and tires right? I plan I driving this thing A LOT more miles.

I too have just purchased 5100's for the front and rear of my 07 double cab. i do not have the tsb leaf. Im putting some 20'' WT4s on my truck and want to level it or get it as close to level without having the infamous "bro lean".

so my question is, with stock springs and no tsb where would i set my front shocks? 1.75? or could i go .85 and still be more level than stock? some pics would be great!

I read somewhere that you should not mix lift components but I didn't know for sure if that was just a disclaimer or what? The reason I ask is that I just bought a 2013 Double Cab that came with a 2.5" lift on the front (spacers). The dealership kept calling it a lift but it is just a leveling kit. I want to get rid of the lean even though it is not that noticeable to most people, but it is driving me nuts. Couldn't I just add the 1.5" Toytec AALs since I have the TSB to even it out or give it a rake without messing anything up?

I eventually would like to replace everything but just can't afford to purchase the complete OME or coils, 4 Bilsteins, and AALs at this time.
