    I already have the Toytec 3" lift, and want another 1" of clearance. Will 5100's all around set at 1-1.5 give me any more lift???

    I'm assuming you have the OME coils? if so you shouldn't adjust your shocks for more lift you should use them set at the lowest setting.

    What you are wanting to do wont work. If you want more that 3" lift, you have a couple of choices. You can get a drop bracket lift, like a Fabtec, Pro Comp, or whatever, or you can add a 1" body lift to your truck. Stacking lifts, which is what you are considering, never works, and leads to breakage of other components.

    Well, many people want alot more money but dont want to work. If you want more lift, only one way to get it.
