    Got my Bilstein 5100s put on up front @ 1" setting. Looks great~ Next up for tomorrow are 265/75/r16 Cooper Discoverer S/Ts and Yellow Top Optima. Bonus is a day above freezing so I can give the Taco a fresh wash. PICS coming soon!!!

    Nope, just up front. I have Bilstein 5125s for the rear, keeping it stock in the back (no lift in the foreseeable future). Hopefully, 5125s will be completed this weekend weather permitting. :)

    Are you still running a stock spring set up? If so did the 1" setting on the 5100's get you leveled out?

    Yes, still running stock coils up front. It didn't quite level it out, still 7/8 lower in front, but I am fine with a little rake. Running the Billies @ 2.5" translates into a harsher ride, one the reasons I opted for the middle setting. I will post some pics soon, damn work is getting in the way.
