    881 Front coils, Bilstien 5100's all the way front set to "0" Icon Dynamic's mini leafs in rear, stock tires.
    I lifted my 04 Tacoma with 881's and 5100's on the front, my son bought a 2012 ( 4 banger ) and wants to just level the front with Bilstiens ( 5100's ) and save the OEM coils what setting would be advised for this install ,don't want to lift the rear or have the front CV boot's rub ,any other recommendation's would be appreciated. Is the install about the same as on the 1st generations?

    The lift is about the same, but a lot easier....I would recommend putting the billy at the .85 or 1.5 setting. When I had mine, I had them at the 2.5 setting with an AAL in the rear and it was just about perfect. Maybe someone else will chime in on the hieght. As for the lift itself....Check this out

    Just ordered 5100s for my 2012 reg cab. I'm setting them at 2.5. Should be delivered next week. I'll let you know how it goes
