    Hey guys,,, noob here and been doing a lot of reading and searching on here for what I want regarding a 3" lift. Got it narrowed down to these two. What are your thoughts as it will be mainly a pavement pounder with some off road but nothing radical

    I actually went with a Revtek kit that will use my existing springs and shocks since I already have bilstiens on it and saved some money.

    Also looking at 5100/eibach lift for my '13 sport access cab. Ive read through probably too many threads about this already, but have learned a ton from everyone. I still have a couple questions though if anyone would be willing to chime in. Im not too worried about lift height, anywhere from 2-3 is fine, but I would like the truck to still have a near factory rake (a little less if fine but do not want to be anywhere near a bro lean). My two questions are as follows:

    if 5100's are set at .85 should i get 1.5" or 2" AAL (truck already has 4 leafs including overload). And how much lift will this give approx?

    Also the same question as above but with 5100's set at 0" scenario.

    Thank you - new membah
