the perfect lift

(4) bilstein 5100's. fronts on top notch (2.5") w/ rear leaf TSB. it firmed my truck up nicely and it stands 39.5" at each fender. i measured from ground up past the center of wheel to bottom of overfender. new leafs gave approx. 1 1/4" lift. anyone pondering a lift IMO this set up is the way to go. i didnt even need an alignment. even with my mud terrains the ride is better than stock and it feels more stout

Are the rear shocks adjustable or just the front? Where did you order your stuff from and how much did it set you back. Sounds like this would clear 285/ 75 R16's on factory TRD Off-Road wheels? Thanks,

the set up is still as good as ever. no vibes, no complaints. and no, the rear shocks are not adjustable. i got the shocks from wheelers (all 4) for about $320 or so. the rear leaf tsb was free of course. with wheels and shocks installed. $1700.
so around 2 grand total. WTF ! did i say that??

Anyone wanting a nice deal with great service can get a set of 4 5100's from Sonny at www.downsouthmotorsports.com for $258.00 with free shipping. Bought mine yesterday morning and they just arrived by UPS a few minutes ago. Course I just live a couple hundred miles north of Sonny, still pretty awesome service and price.
