    Ok, if I go with a 3" lift in the front but I want the rear fender to sit 1" higher than the front fender should I go with a 5100, 5125, or 5150?

    If I use the 5125 or 5150, how much travel will I need? This will determine which shock to buy since those come in different lengths. I wont be doing much off roading with my 09 DC TRD OR PreRunner.

    Thanks for the help guys!:D

    X2, the leafs do all the lifting and as for which shock, that would depend on which leaf pack you go with and how much travel those leafs will give you.

    Yeah, I know the rear shocks dont make it any taller. Not sure how I would get the rear fender about an inch higher. I may do toytec coilovers (including the 5100s) in the front to get the 3" there and do the toytec AAL for TSB to get 1.5" and a 1.5" block. Since the rear is 1.75" higher than the front now that should get me ~1" higher in the rear if I went with a 3" lift using coilovers in the front.

    If I did that, which shocks for the rear would you recommend? 5100, 5125, or 5150s?

    Thanks!

    But I thought if you went more than 3" the 5100s wouldn't work?

    Sorry, I missed the 1.5" block. You can still get the 5100's and an extender from Toytec. That would work also. Your main concern is going to be at full droop. Since you won't be doing much OR'ing, I wouldn't be too worried about it.
