    So I have an 06 PreRunner without the TSB. I want to put the Bilstien 5100's on but I have read a few threads on here about vibrations/shimmys after lift. I am only having the fronts set at 0.85", maybe 1.75", since I am not able to have the TSB (I have 72k miles). Will I have any of these issues or will I be just fine?

    Any advice will help!

    i initially had vibes at 5-7 mph with my 1.5" aal for tsb and billies @ 2.5". i will say that now that everything has finally settled (after about putting 300 miles on everything with an alignment), the vibes are barely noticeable, but still there. imo, it was worth it to me. i've only read that ppl with 1.75 usually don't have vibes, but you still got that possibility. every truck will "behave" differently when it comes to vibes.

    Vibes are kinda hit or miss- Some folks have had issues and some haven't.

    You'll probably be fine- and if you want the level/lift- Go for it and you can fix the vibes from there. With a real low lift like .85...You probably won't have any issues.

    yeah like Brunes said, some people who lift 3 inches don't have any while others at .85 may.
