    I have an 07 Double Cab with 5100's in the front and I just ordered a 1 inch block to level the back. Does anyone know if I put a 1/2 spacer on top of the billy's to get a full 3" would that cause problems??? Eventually I'll be going with the coilover conversion but don't have the $$$ right now so would that be a reasonable intrum solution or should I just wait?

    Most vendors don't recommend running spacers on top of 5100s. If its not too late, I would change that block for an AAL. I hear blocks can cause your axes to warp. They can also break.

    you beat me to it. blocks may be cheaper, but aal's would be alot more beneficial, and you wont have the problems associated with blocks either.

    you could possibly get spacers for the front, but leave the 5100's on the stock setting. or maybe a different set of coils. either way it'll cost a little, but if you are gonna do just the 5100's as the lift for now, i would stay away from the spacer.

    Yeah I'm probably going to go with the 5100 coil over conversion. But I have to save my pennies.
