5100's and tsb only..

anyone running this set up? I have read a lot of threads and most ppl also have an AAL in addition to the tsb. I am trying to lift my truck and have minimal issues, vibes, strain, etc.

My plan is 5100's at 1.75 and the tsb is getting done next week with complete new leaf springs. would lik eto do this one time and be done!

Should I expect any issues with this setup? I just got rid of a lifted F150 that had tons of problems!! So I don't want and can't afford that again..!

I am planning the same set up but running at 0.85" with Eibach springs, what I have read it should provide about 2.5" in front

Im running this set up and its been great so far.I still have a barely noticeable rake overall.opened up more options on tire size and sits on proportion to the rear.

What are the advantages to running aftermarket springs with the 5100's? as opposed to the stock springs? More lift? ride?

there is a thread on the coil rating of the eibach vs the OEM. the eibach set a 0 gives about 1.6" and set at 0.85 about 2.5", this leaves me another setting to lift the front more but it will require new UCA's and that's not in the plan.

I'm planning on running 5100's at 1.75" along with the TSB springs in the future too. Does anyone have pics of this with 265/75/16's?

When yal are saying TSB springs do you mean the ones from Toyota? Because over time won't those settle back to original height? (maybe Im wrong?)

When I lift mine I plan on using the TSB AAL (1.5") that won't settle from what I hear

I have factory TRD off road springs and the ride feels a little more stiff to me. Ultimately I would like to get my end lifted about 1 1/2" and a new EMU 885 springs with Cambrug UCA's but I don't have $1250...
