    Just bought a 2017 trd off road 4x4 in super white with 2900 miles on it. The previous owner put bilstein 5100 on all 4 corners and 285/75/16 duratracs on before deciding he didnt want it anymore and traded it for a ram 1500. His loss was my gain got it for a steal. Although he did these upgrades he did put a block in the rear which Im not to fond of. He left the stock front coils on as well as uca. Sooo... I wanna keep the 5100’s since they are new and already there but get some new coils up front as well as uca. Also a full leaf pack replacement in rear. Any ideas...????? Lets hear em.

    Thanks

    Ome 888 springs or 886 if your putting 150lbs up front, lr spa ucas, put you at about 500$ then do a hs3 leafpack in rear or dakarS. Then lower 5100s to stock setting. @Headstrong offroad has it all for ya. That is basically my setup. 3” up front 2” in rear for a level lift

    No complaints at all. 3” is absolute max id go. my front cv boots are bent pretty good so i installed a diff drop kit and it helped about 25%. For the price i dont think it can be beat. There are better options out there but this does what i needed it to do at my 1300$ price point.

    Btw we had exact same vehicles i traded in a 15 lb sport for ny 4x4 offroad.

    Thats crazy, are you running any wheel spacers? My tires are to close for comfort to my uca, now if I did the LR UCA you think I would need to run spacers?

    Yes if its stock wheels and you are keeping your setup. People run pizza cutter tires 255’s i beleave or get aftermarket wheels. I have methods with 4.75” backspacing with 285’s. Im not a fan of spacers.

    Unknown lift, maybe 2" I don't know how to ID it, and would rather set it back to stock.

    Tape measure would tell you block thickness. Look at your front shocks, you will see several grooves cut into the metal body of the shock, where the lower spring mount is. Count how many rings you see above the perch. Since you have the front shock w 5 rings/settings you will have the following lift in inches based on which ring you're set on. Bottom ring is "Stock" height.

    1--0"
    2--065
    3--1.1
    4--1.55
    5--2"

    I just learned this yesterday, now I'm an "internet expert."

    888’s and either a dakar pack or progressive pack for the rear and youve got yourself a fun little toy.
