    Looking for feedback reg. 2WD 2.7L 4CYL Prerunner Double Cab (automatic) install of Bilstein 5100's front/rear with 883 coils up front. Front height set at .00. All feedback from knowledgeable Tacoma owners would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Overall lift height? I have been told 1.5 inches which would not affect the geometry of the vehicle.
    2. At 1.5 inches would that level the truck?
    3. Ride quality improvement?
    4. Estimated labor cost for the install (central, southern California)?

    If I decide on going this route it would include alignment and up-sizing tires to 265/75/16 (Wildpeak A/T3W). Current tire size is stock 245/75/16.

    Thank you!

    Jim

    Following, looking to do this same setup. Not a lot of people with 883 setup on a 2nd gen DC 4 cylinder

    latin3,

    Say, after all said and done I decided not to do the lift. I received some valuable insight from (experienced, well-known) TW members that helped me decide. Instead: I upgraded wheels/tires; added OEM alloy wheels and added Toyo Open Country ATll c-load and I could not be happier. In the future I will go with Bilstein's 5100's (front set at .00) front/rear.

    Gotta be careful with the DCSB 4 cyl if functionality and performance is what you are after. Doing this and that (lift stuff) is not necessarily better.
