    hey all. i installed the 5100's with eibach coils appx 4 months ago with a toytec aal in rear. i have since noticed that i am getting some bad vibs from the front. contacted toytec and they said my front height from center of hub to edge of fender flare should be 23 mine is 25. also noticed that even w/ fdd my front cv boots are leaking. just wanted to know if anyone else has ran into this problem. by the way i have a 02 4cyl. also could i just replace the eibachs with ome 881's to lower a little without replacing the aal in rear. thanks

    waiting for the pics. some grease coming out of the CVs are normal, but the bad vibes are not. Theres tons of things that can go wrong, from the 5100s being set at something other than 0 to having the coil seat upside down.

    If he bought them from toyotec, i highly doubt its on the 0'' setting. But so far..all evidence points that way..

    I didn't order my 5100s from Toytec, but mine were shipped at the highest setting - not 0. Unless Toytec opens every 5100 and adjusts them, they will not come shipped set to 0...but I could be wrong. Did the 4 cyl Tacomas come with 5 or 6 lugs? As far as I can tell, the 5100s are made for 6 lug vehicles only.

    no its a 6 lug. the struts came assembled from toytec. the seat for the coil is set on the bottom grove with two groves above it.
