    Sorry for making the millionth bilstein 5100 thread, but I've read the endless threads on TW and cannot find the answer im looking for......... :confused:

    I want to lift my truck to have a solid 2in lift, NO MORE (I want to keep stock uca) . I already have some adjustable 5100s im waiting to put on the front and, just have stock rear 3 leafs (no tsb leaf). I want raise it level. I also have a fiberglass shell idk if that matters. How can i do this?

    Can I use my 5100 @ 0 with Eibach Coils(=1.6'') and then use a .5'' and .25'' spacer to get near 2''? (.5 driver for taco lean)

    And for the rear- since i don't have the tsb leaf And have fiberglass camper
    what would be my best option to match front?

    from what i read the 4cyl access cab weighs less than v6, so i will have more lift than what the v6 guys claimed to get. is this true?

    if you want 2'' because you just want to level it out, you just need to set the 5100s to 1.75 setting, esp if you don't have the TSB in the rear.

    it still may be a little nose high but then should settle. Don't know how much your topper is weighing the rear down, but I think the 1.75'' setting is the way to go imo

    I don't know if this is going to help you or not. That being said;

    I have eibach coils and 5100's set at .85. I have a 2 inch AAL in the rear non-tsb and my rear sits .5 inches higher than the front.

    I do not have a shell and I do not know the weight, but it seems if you do the eibach at 1.6 and get a 2 inch AAL in the rear, you will be damn close to level.

    Just a little lesson I learned, you should get UCA's.
