    I have a set of the Bilstein 5100 for my 2004 tacoma, I havent put them in as of yet, If I went with the Eibach spring will I be getting the same amount of hight as if I ran the OEM spring? also witch notch should I be running on the front struts?

    Also....I have 1 1/4 inch rear shackle and I have an AAL to be installed as well should i be running both or do i go back to an OEM shackle?

    thanks.

    I have my 5100s set at 0 and Eibach 620 coils on the front. Dakar leaf pack on the back with 5100s. I couldn't be happier with how it looks and how it feels on the road. Also did the diff drop on the front. This is how it sits after the install. Pretty level.

    Hope this helps.
