    Hey guys been doing a lot of reading on here and i think i figured out how I want to do a lift on the front of my truck. I have a 2004 PreRunner V6 extra cab and I was looking at ToyTech Lifts and I think I want to get The Eibach front coils which it says will lift my front end 3'' is this right? and then replacing the front shocks with the 5100's. And with the new coils I would leave the 5100's at zero right? or do I need to adjust them to get the 3''?
    And with the front end lift is there anything else I need to do? or will I be good After I get an alignment? Just was hoping you guys could help me out or give me any input. all info is appreciated! Thanks

    I pretty sure those eibachs give the 1st gen 3". Try calling them to double check. Or PM them. They have an account here.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I got 3 1/2 form mine set at 0 but I'm sure the extra 1/2" was just my stock coils sagging.
