    Ive read all the threads I could find on the topic. Want to confirm with you experts that the best and most economical way to level out/small lift for my new truck is to go with Bilstein 5100's all the way around and maybe an add a leaf? Spacers seems to be a no-no. Thanks for the tips.

    Im new to this sight and im super stoked to see this online forum with so much great info and so many helpful people. This sight is addicting. Just upgraded from an 05 tacoma that I put 260K miles on to a 2011 Trd sport. Wish I had bough a new tacoma sooner. What a nice ride.

    you dont need the 5100's on the back to level it out, just throw a pair on the front and you're g2g, just did this to mine 2 days ago

    For the record, when you "level out" your truck, it makes it "squat when going down the road. It look like a dog dragging its ass because it has worms.

    The rake on the vehicles are set that way for a reason.

    If you level it, make sure you adjust the head lights so your not blinding other drivers.

    mabye if you crank the 5100's up to 2.5 and leave the rear alone, i raised mine 1.75 and it's a hair front high but i'm getting ready to put a relentless fab bumper on so that'll level it out again

    at the OP no pics of it done yet, hit a deer last week and my front end is smashed, i'll post pics when i get it back from the body shop and get my bumper on
