    i haven't seen anyone running 5100s in the front and blocks in the back so i am asking if anyone knows how the ride would be if i had the bilsteins set at 2.5" and an inch of blocks in the back.

    better idea would be to run the 5100s in the forn and get either an aal, or the tsb for the leafsprings in the rear

    tsb- technical service bulletin. the stock 3 leaf pack was bottoming out so they add a leaf. i think it gives you about 1" lift and stiffens up the rear

    would it be better (or easier) to just get the 5100s set at 1.5 and no tsb?

    No Toyota will do the tsb but charge you for it if your out of warr. Just get the aal that's what I have and I love the ride.
