    So, I dont know very much when it comes to suspension, Im eager to learn though. Anyways I want to put bilstien 5100's in the front and rear with Toytec coils on the front shocks. I have a 2007 TRD Sport with stock everything right now, Id rather not spend anymore money at this time on new UCA's or anything (I do eventually want total chaos UCA's), so my question is will this setup be fine how I want it for now?

    first thing. it would be toytec/eibach coils, not coilovers.

    Coilovers are the high performance pre assembled units such as fox, king, icon ect.

    second thing. Im pretty sure the eibachs are on backorder. so good luck there.

    Depending on how much you lift the front. maybe an AAL in the back. Make sure rear shocks are right length and your good to go.

    yeah I know they have a 5100 coilover kit. but it sounded as if the dude was talking about the eibachs. who knows. he did edit the post..maybe he will say something.

    oh, gotcha, I changed it, see im already learning!

    yeah I know theyre on backorder, i probably wont be actually ordering all this for a while, gotta go to court first and fight a ticktet :p

    I plan on setting the front shocks to 1.75 plus the coils so it should be about 3.35" in the front and Im not sure about what to do for the rear...

    pretty sure its not recommended to go over the .85 setting or whatever with the eibachs? dont remember the actual #.

    but i do know for sure if you want 3" its almost guaranteed to get new UCAs

    for the rear id suggest and AAL. just make sure the rear shocks you get are the proper size for the ammount of rear lift. Just give toytech a call when you are ordering and they will take care of you with sizes.

    oh, i didnt know that, good thing I asked around first.
    yeah i dont have the $$ for new UCA's so ill probably just keep it around stock high, i dont like a lot of lift on tacomas anyways. And ill def give them a call.


    yeah, I want the best ride quality

    thanks for the responses guys

    go to wheelers you can get the toytec ultimate lift kit and some light racing uca's and you will have a decent set up with everything you need for about $1450 that is a good price if you are going to do it do it right the 1st time
