    So I'm hoping that within the next 2 months to have my truck lifted, and I'm looking for suggestions.
    I already have an idea for what I think would be a good setup, but if somebody can help me get the same basic setup for cheaper or a slightly better setup for not much more let me know!

    As of right now here is my idea:

    Front adjustable Bilstein 5100's: lowrangeoffroad $98
    Rear Bilstein 5125's: wheelers offroad $149
    Toytec coils: Toytec Lifts $164
    2" AAL: lowrangeoffroad $40
    Centerpin for leafs: Wheelersoffroad $4
    U-Bolt set: Wheelersoffroad $30
    Extended Rear brake line: lowrangeoffroad $24

    Total: $509 not including shipping costs

    I can't seem to find any shocks for the rear for less that $150, and as far as I know Toytec seems to be the only site that carries the coils. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    The only suggestion I might have is that if one place happens to charge a few extra dollars for one or two of those products but they can throw it all in on one shipping charge that may save you some money

    Have you checked Downsouthmotorsports. They usually have good prices on 5100s

    Yeah, I guess I need to price everything out with shipping and figure out what's best... I looked at downsouth but they were usually in the middle price range compared to other places, but with differences in shipping they may be better.

    Well it seems no matter what the total is going to average between $550-$580. Toytec is the main reason for the price jump, They're charging $50 shipping because of my address...

    don't complain about shipping... my $600 worth of lift parts cost $350 to ship :eek:

    and those coils are proprietary to toytec, made by eibach so you won't find them anywhere else.

    DSM sells the 5100's as a set of 4, with extended rears for 2" lifts; pricewise I think it's about the same though

    Yeah, I guess it's not too bad. I priced everything with DSM and it came out about the same. About $15 more in the end.
