Ok, I've been reading the threads and reading about the Bilstein adjustable shocks.
I currently have a Revtek 3" spacer lift on my 06 standard cab, 4 cyl, 5-speed, 4x4 Tacoma. The lift came with the truck when I bought it. It originally had 285 tires on it. It looked awesome, but there was no power and the steering/alignment was wierd. I replaced the tires with 265 standard truck tires (the Dunlops from Discount Tire that everyone hates but I don't really mind them. I had the tires balanced and the alignment done. Obviously steering improved, but there's still that shimmy/wandering on the highway, which I beleive is from the 3" lift killing the caster/camber (one of those c's). This truck is my commuter/all around vehicle. I drive on the highway daily and I have been trying to make the truck more highway friendly.
I originally ordered Fabtech steering stabilizer shocks, but sent them back because I heard about TC UCAs. I thought that would be cool and they would probably resolve the alignment/wandering issue. However, due to the price, spacer lift, this is probably overkill. (But they would make for some cool bling ). Now I discovered the 5100s. I want the truck's steering to perform normally (better than it is) on the highway, but I still want a levelled look. My question is do the 5100's with the front set to 2.5 reduce shimmy compared to 3" lift? Also, would new rear 5100 Bilsteins affect height or do I need to leave the blocks in the rear springs?
Thanks for read'n
