    The only mod is a hole in my wallet!!!!!
    hi,

    i've searched and thought i had it nailed down to what i needed but now after some more searching on here i'm more confused than ever.

    I have 5100/eibachs waiting to install. I want to run them with the bilsteins set at .85 with the eibach coils.

    I want my rtuck to be level or just a slight slight rake (definitly not nose high).

    I'm going to get some 5100s for the rear.

    here's my question.....

    what do i need for the rear?

    who the tsb alone level the truck or would it be nose high?

    would a 1.5" or 2.0" aal make it level? If i use a aal should i get the tsb done or just us a aal?

    If i get the tsb done and use a aal, would i have a big rake? (remember i looking for as close to level as possible).

    *also, one last question a little off topic.....is it a big deal if i don't run a 1/4" taco lean spacer on the 5100/eibach set-up?

    lastly, i'm trying to not buy new uca's right now, so would i be better off setting the bilsteins at 0 when using the eibachs?


    sorry about all the questions but my head is spinning.....

    thanks for any help!!!!

    Im rocking 5100/eibach at .85 and 1.5 aal. W/out the spacers and no aal I was slightly nose high if not level. But as soon as u throw something in the back, I would be nose high. Yes, there is rake with my current setup. But, the truck still sits nice with a bed full of camp gear.

    is the rake close now less or more than the factory rake?

    do you have the tsb done?

    are you running uca's?

    Close to factory rake. Yes,tsb. Yes, light racing uca's. The coil isolators that I am selling will be the happy medium between 0 and .85. Its pretty much like having 1/4" spacer on each side. Check my sig for link. It might be what u are looking for in order of being slightly raked with tsb and 5100@0 and eibach.

    I am running Billies on all 4's .85 in the front on Eibach Coils and just the TSB in the rear (no AAL). With 275/70/17 tires i sit almost 1" higher in the rear than the front.. I believe its like 38 1/4" in the front and 39 1/4" in the rear. I love the ride..

    No shims needed for this kind of lift?

    I'm about to get same setup of eibachs @ .85. i dont have any lean issue now, but I think its cause I have new stock springs, I'm thinkin 1/2" spacer on driver and 1/4" on passenger for the tank, battery and driver added weight.
