Got a question...

This is hopefully not a noobish question, however it is one a noob might ask:

What is the difference between this kit:
http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

and this one:

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

?????

I am mainly looking to raise the truck and level it out after my rear TSB gets completed and between the 2 kits the nomenclature has me a hair confused. In the second kit, it includes spanner adjustment, is that for leveling, pre-load, or overall ride height adjusting? Which kit would be best served to help eliminate the "Taco Lean" and level the trucks stance out without requiring UCA's or dropping the differential? The truck is mainly a commuter and doesn't get seriously off-roaded, only light trailing and running back and forth across fields (which it does fine with those duties stock, just want some clearance).

So, the billies is only "somewhat" adjustable, meaning (IIRC) 0-.85, 1.75, and 2.5 and the other is fully adjustable and able to compensate for the lean without using the drivers side spacer? Am I on the right track, or missing something?

OK, so am I under the understanding that the Billies in the first kit are not ride height adjustable? I was under the impression all 5100's were...

(scratches head) Strange, I thought all the Bilstein 5100's were adjustable to several ride heights...of course, I am most likely mistaken on this matter.

They ARE from 0 -2.5...but with that particular set up only to .85 because of the spring...now if you were using stock shocks you could set them at 0, .85, 1.75 and 2.5

So, the springs are the limiting factor on the first set-up? I'm still confused by this:

Preset at 3" Lift Adjustable with C Clip for additional weight.
as stated in the first kit (heads spinning.....reaches for beer)

the red ones are set at 0 and has a shaft with threads and are infinitely adjustable 0-3". the shocks are themselves have 4 settings but with the threads the contraption does the adjusting not the snap ring.

the other has the 4 groves. it is set on the first groove (.85") and (1.6")lift coils

the one uses a devise that goes on the outside of the shock for lift. the other uses the shock and a spring for lift

Could moving the snap ring on the set without the spanner set-up be moved if I used a spring compressor to adjust the height? Or does the Eibach springs limit the ability to adjust? I have read not to use aftermarket springs on the 5100's but I thought I had seen them used with OME 884's, 885's and 886's. With the heavier spring rate will that cause the snap ring to fail?
