    5100's all around with the fronts set at 1.75" 1" readylift blocks in the back. antenna X shorty antenna. smittybilt step sides. MKW M19 satin black wheels 17x8.5 plasti dip'd front emblem and hood scoop.
    before i go ahead with this, i was wondering if anyone has had any issues with re-alignment after installing the bilstein 5100's @ 1.75"?
    on 2012 models to be more specific.

    thanks.

Then Toyota dealer said they couldn't align it so hopefully next shop can getting pissed cause pretty sure dealer just didn't wanna do it and other guy just didn't give a damn maybe 3rd time is a charm

    Dealer had to do a lot of adjustment on my '09 set at 0.85, said it was close but they got it. The 1.75 setting may have it right on the edge. Did you change tires and wheels as well?

    im going to put 265/70/17 duratracs on the stock wheels, i have been told by others that have them that they'll fit with everything stock. i just wanted to level the front a bit with the 5100's, but might not if it's going to be a problem getting it properly aligned.

    That's close enough to the stock tire size and shouldn't be a problem. Get it aligned with the wheels and tires you are going to use on it, though. If you haven't changed tire sizes or wheels yet, they *should* be able to align it even at 1.75. But, it may be right on or just past the edge and they may only be able to get it close. Some people are OK with it being close, others want it in spec, your call in the end. Going from 65 to 70 shouldn't make a big difference.
