    5100's all around - fronts at 1.75", 265/70/17 Bridgestone Revo 2, HID headlights and fog lights, factory skid plate, ss exhaust tip, tube steps, Access roll-up tonneau cover, Redline hood struts, 6 D-rings, seat MagLite, LED dome, fumoto oil drain, DTRL, fog light anytime, Kenwood/Clarion speakers, Pop-N-Lock 5300, LED bed lights and a few other things...
    On a 2009 TRD Sport with 20K miles, do I need the rear 5100's or is my stock suspension about the same?

    I am adding them in the front to achieve a 1.75" lift. Just not sure if I want the back too. I am also adding a 1.5" tsb AAL.


    Also, if I decide I later want a 3" lift, I can set these back to 0" and replace the coils with 885's...correct?
    I think 1.75" is enough but may decide later to go higher.

    The 5100 rears allow for up to 2" of lift in the rear. It's your truck but I would put them on all 4's.

    Yes you can set them back to 0 and use 885. Some members have them set to .85 to compensate for sagging/settling.

    I bought all four corners from DSM a couple weeks ago. ( got lucky). I look at it like this, why wear a nice dress shirt with cutoff shorts.
