Which Lift?

Trying to choose a lift for my 2010 4x4 DC. Here are the two I have it narrowed down to:

Build #1
Bilstien 5100 all the way around, with the fronts set at .85
Eibach coils in the front
TSB(hopefully) and toytec aal in back

Build #2
OME 3" suspension lift from toytec
http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

Any input is appreciated!

i voted for number 2, because i cant read, and didnt notice that you listed the eibach springs. i actually have exactly the same setup you listed for build #1. i have been very happy with it so far. for either one of these, though, make sure you get some aftermarket uca's.

just speaking from my own experience. i suppose you could wait and see if you have alignment issues after the lift, but i will be surprised if you dont.

I voted for #1 because I like my Bilstein setup, but I'm on stock coils. To tell you the truth, I'm not sure I even understand how the eibach springs add lift.

I'll check into ucas if I have issues. Hopefully it won't be a problem!

Speaking from my own experience of course... lifted since 05... 1st spacer... now 885s...
my caster was off enough to really screw up my ride quality. youre lucky to have not had serious problems with yours. i suppose there is no hard and fast rule about alignment issues with this kind of lift. didnt mean to give false information, just providing my experience. sorry if there was any confusion.

I dont want to jack this thread but i was wondering, i've heard of driveline vibrations from the 3" lifts... i also want one probably the #2 kit listed here. Are the rumors true?

Have any of you guys used a 1/4" top plate spacer to correct the "taco lean"? I know you're not supposed to use spacers with the 5100s, but one that small couldn't cause too much of a problem it seems

I voted OME because when my truck in paid off in a few years thats the route I am going. I currently have the Eibach springs in the front and I like the ride but was hoping for a little more lift out of them. I also just ordered the 1/4 spacer to correct the taco lean.

Are you running the eibachs w/ your 5100s at .85 setting?

I'd go with OME, just my opinion.

Some have and some don't. I have DC LB and I don't have vibration issues.

I voted for #2 but if budget is a concern #1.

With things the way you have them set up, you may need new UCA's to get alignment into spec...that will cost an extra $339-$669.

I'm going to get the lift on first, then see if i have to have the UCAs. I'm assuming that I'll need them though.

I really like the OME kit and wish now I had bought it instead of what I have now, but I still really like my set up

The full OME kit from Toytec comes with a trim packer for that.

Thansk for all the replys guys. I'm pretty much leaning toward the OME now. Just waiting to see what the dealership is going to decide as far as my rear leaf TSB so I make sure and get the correct AAL.

I almost want to just say F*** it and get the dakar for the back, but i'm going to wait and see what they decide.
