    Hi,

    New member and wanted to get some useful information. I have a 3' lift kiton my 2006 Tacoma. Just bought me some Bilsteins 5100 to replace my old stockshocks, should I leave my spacers on or take them off and run the billies atthe highest setting (2.5)?

    I like the way my truck looks at 3' and I don’t do too much off road stuff. I’ve been getting differentsuggestion from different people.

    Take the front t spacers off leave the back, Take them both off. Buy newspring coils and so forth.



    Help Please

    Take both the front and rear spacers and run the bilsteins at max 2.5? I like the 3' lift look will there be a huge difference between 3 and 2.5? Im running 285 75 16 tires.

    Thanks

    If you want 3"out of the billies, run them with a thin top plate spacer from toytec.

    A single apostrophe is feet btw.
