    Do you know if this lift would affect the TSS?

    So happy with my 5100's up front with the stock coils, (as per Bilstein's recommendation). My 1" block in the Rear has absolutely no affect on the handling.

    Sooooo much cheaper than the TRD 2/1 lift. I still dont understand why the TRD kit includes rear shocks with the 1" block, since it's the block that lifts the rear. I'm assuming it's for folks who dont have the O.R. shocks.

    Highly recommend the 5100's. If I was a serious off roader, I would only get shocks that come with the reservoirs, but I aint, and I dont rock crawl. The Taco would require at least a 6" lift and 35" tires.

    Breakdown
    (2) Bilstein 5100's approx $200 CND each
    (2) 1" rear blocks from Ready Lift $150 CND

    Total $550 CND + Labour & Alignment

    5100 fronts arriving today. Extended travel rears coming at some future date. Very much looking forward to them.

    That said, Icon RXT packs have been a game changer over the past few weeks. I left them at Option 1. Great ride, way less body roll sans sway bar, and what feels like 75% less axle wrap. I'm looking forward to a wet day to really test that out.

    Would UCA’s need to be changed for a 2 inch lift? I was understanding they only or mostly did with a 3 inch lift?

    All 4 shocks for $1000? That’s a great deal I would go for it.

    I had the 5100's because it was a cheap upgrade from the TRD OR suspension, but then replaced it with the 5160/6112 and its a great ride.

    A bit of a 'harder 'ride over bumps at slower speeds, but it eats the bumps at higher speeds and is very smooth and linear.

    Good to hear. I'm doing the TRD version of the 5100s along with the Icon RXT leafs. It didn't occur to me to try running without the sway bar.

    Be sure that the rears have more than 1.0in of additional travel. The typical 5100s are only 1.0in longer. You need more with the RXTs.

    I just installed the fronts yesterday. They feel great, and at the 4th circlip setting on the left and 3rd on the right, the Taco Lean is fully dead. Even less body roll now. I see no purpose to the sway bar with this setup. Prior to, it did cancel out all the roll on road but was massively annoying and harsh.

    After front 5100s with 1/4 tank and new front body mounts:
    LF: 22 1/4in RF: 22in
    LR: 23 1/2in RR: 23 1/4in
