    I know this question has been asked thousands of times but I am having trouble locating the correct answer and I figured I would just ask it.

    I just purchased a 2013 TRD Sport and wanted to purchase the 5100 setup. I just want to level out the front with the rear. I have seen the TSB for the rear leaf springs. Does the TSB apply to the 2013? Do I just purchase the front 5100s with the stock coils and set it at 1.75? I was at downsouthmotorsports.com but had trouble finding the right setup. Also, does anyone have pics of this setup with stock tires? Thanks.

    Count the leaves on the rear, 3 thin & 1 thick (overload) you have the TSB pack, 2 leaves & 1 overload you have no TSB

    Here is a picture of my truck with the 5100's installed, 1.75" setting on the front with TSB in the rear. This was before the alignment and the shocks settled a bit so its sitting even on the front and rear now.

    Where did you get them? Just the fronts, correct with the stock coils?

    Got them from downsouth motorsports. Yes it is just 5100's in the front and yes they are the stock TRD offroad coils. If you check out my build thread you can see how it evolved from stock to where it is today.

    ur lucky enough to have the sport/SR5 coils which are linear and take preloading somewhat better than the progressive offroad coils comparatively


    U could always get eibach coils and 5100s set at "0" for about 1.6" of front lift and not have any preloading also

    No you do not have to get all 4 if you do not want to. I only got the fronts at the time of this photo because I knew when I did my lift I was going to be getting new rear shocks so I opted out of getting the rear 5100 at the time.

    no, refresh this page and click on my link....I HAD TO EDIT IT...............at the drop down, if u dont want rear shocks, select NONE and u will be fine......................although the rear 5100s are a nice compliment to the fronts

    What about the longer brake line? Is it really needed?
