    I have a 2in spacer lift right now, and i want the front end higher. I cant afford kings or fox, so i was thinking about the toytec lift with the 5100s and eibachs, what would i set the bilsteins at to get like 2.5" for the front and keep the back stock so it has the rake look to it

    thanks

    Sounds good but I'm not a professional nor have I done it myself so my opinion is 3rd person. What I do know is that if you are messing with stuff as important as you suspension don't skimp on it and try to save money with it as doing so could be very dangerous and life threatening. Do it right the first time even if it means spending some extra cash or saving a little while longer.

    I dont think bilsteins or eibachs have killed anyone? not everyone needs King or fox coilovers and most people that have them don't really need them. You can do A very solid (safe) Front lift for under a grand

    What if I can offer you these...Icon 2.5" with their new 2.0" VS aluminum smooth bodies for bit more but a whole lot better than the 5100's.

    PM me if you or anyone's interested.

    If it works and is safe then more power to you, but I was thinking by his title saying "for under a grand" that he may be trying to save money and skimp out which would be unsafe. If it's a good lift and can be done right then disregard my post. :thumbsup:

    I just installed the Toyotec lift with the Eibach springs and the BIlstein 5100 wit the TSB AAL. The truck rides and handles good. I have the front shocks set at .85 and it does have a slight rake in the front, but I know the back will settle a little over time.

    so how much would those foxes be and are we talking a WAY better ride? I wouldnt mind spending a little more ching for a much better ride. I mostly drive on road like 95% of the time. I was leaing towards the eibach/5100s but that fox setup looks shweet.:D

    I think I paid about 650.00 including the shipping after the coupon for The Toyotec kit with the rear TSB AAL.
