    Im ordering the last bit of supplies for my lift and I have a few questions. I have 5100s and am pairing them with eibachs. Im ordering an 1.5" aal.

    What is the best squeak free aal. Toytec any good?

    I have the ubolt flip, what do I need to retrofit the bump stop?

    Will I need the axle shim. I think the 3 degree is too much but maybe a 2 degree would help with angles.

    If I lift it on stock wheels and tire and get it aligned will I need another alignment after new wheels and tires?

    Thanks

    The AAL from Toytec is a good one. It has friction padds on them, and its very rare for them to squeak. If they do, its most likely due to not cleaning the springs off when installing them. You shouldnt need any shims with only 1.5" lift.

    Sweet thats what I was hoping. Thanks. Im looking to have it lifted by the end of the month.

    Will there be a problem going to new wheels and tires (265 70 17) once I have everything aligned after lifting?

    It would be ideal just to go in and get the wheels swapped and not have to do anything twice.

    If you get the right size wheels and tires, there shouldnt be any issues.

    I would get the alignment after the new wheels to be safe, I think you need a timbren bumpstop

    I know the timbrens bolt right up to the flip kit but I also know that people have reused the factory bumps. I dont want to spend 250 bucks on timbrens
