What I did get an answer on is that I decided I'm going to get the Bilstein 5100' and pair them with the Eibach springs but I have a few concerns that I couldn't find the answer to.
1. Will raising the front of my truck with that set up fix my problem of my tires rubbing on the UCA? That is the issue that I'm trying to fix
2. How much of a bro lean is this going to give me till I can afford to get new leafs for the back?
3. What spacer are people using for the drivers side? Just a 1/4" seems to be the most popular but is there a certain brand to go with?
I would only want to set the BIllys to 0" so I should only get about 1.6" lift. I've only had my truck a little over a year and this is by far the largest project I've undertaken on my own so I would like to make sure I'm not going to be wasting money. Any thoughts or input would be great
Not sure on question #1.. However I'd think you'd be pretty close to level without adding anything on the rear (assuming you don't have a shell or carry any add'tl weight). The factory rake is about 1.5" or so I believe.
For reference, I have an 09 DCLB with 5100's all around, fronts set to 0" with the Eibachs. I do have a wheelers 3-leaf aal pack in back on top of the non-tsb 3 leaf oem springs, but have a shell & about 50 lbs of various equipment in the bed (gas can & holder, etc.) for about 200 total lbs constant weight.. so it squats the back to about level.. I love the set up, it's great for the price especially.
I went with the Toytec 1/4" front top plate spacer for the driver side lean, worked great.
Anyway, hope the info helps and good luck!
