Not this question again.......

So I'm trying to level out my 2006 Prerunner. I'm trying to do this on a budget but at the same time dont want something that will hurt my truck. It looks like my best option is to buy the Bilstein 5100's and set them at 1.75 or 2.5. I have heard good stuff about Sonny at downsouthmotorsports so I will probably just get them from him and have a local shop install them. Anything else that I need other then the shocks.....or anything that I need to be aware of?

thats all. the shop will take the coils off urs, as well as the top plate, set the shock to whatever height you tell them, then install the stock on the 5100's. all they should nee to know is what setting you want it on. if ur doing nothing in the rear, i'd say 1.75 in the front

Yeah i figured I would have to do the alignment.I have the TSB done so do you think I should go 1.75 or 2.5? I want it level or maybe nose down just a fraction.

If you have the TSP and you want ur truck to be level or slight nose down i would do the 1.75. i have stock in the back and 1.75 in the front and its a little bit nose up. but i like the look of nose up so i would do the 2.5 with the TSP
