    Toytec just came out with the pre built 5100/eibach combo. Looks pretty sick. Add a good leaf back and your golden.

    I've got a DCLB with OME Dakar springs and 885 coils in front.. Drives better than my old stock 4cyl.
    2 things I'm not happy with.. how much rake it has (no spacer) and the Dakar springs just started making noise.

    Anyone have comments on the ride with a spacer up front?
    Thinking about going with a different setup in the front to try and level it. Not sure what that might be yet.

    Icon Stage 4 Kit, Billet Arms
    i just purchased the Icon Stage 4 kit, billet arms, from 4wheel parts they have good customer service and work with the prices. i purchased mine through one of their "Jeep and Truck Fest" events and saved some good money. i also bought new method wheels and Toyo 305's that they also cut me a deal on. but definitely shop around and see what the best price is.

    Check the build!
    There's some groundbreaking info covered in this thread........

    Anyway, my 2 cents is Bilstein 5100's and Eibach coils in the front and an AAL in the rear; that and the OME lift are the two most popular on Toyotas b/c they're cheap and effective. The Bilstein vs OME is just like Nike vs Adidas/Windows vs Mac/etc...they're both great lifts and pretty much the same. Moral: there's no sense in spending bukus of money on a simple 3" lift, when you can get it done for around $500

    Dipped my badges | Took the mud flaps off | Took the bug deflector off | Added Stubby antenna | Can't wait to start the REAL mods...
    How'd it go down there at 4wheelparts?

    Later.
