    Ok So the Bilstein 5100s...
    Interesting and apparently they are extremely reliable cause everyone here buys them...

    Where do you guys buy them?
    Do you install them yourselves?
    If so. How do you install them?
    How difficult would it be?

    Is this an entire lift? Front and back?
    OR do I need a new leaf spring package...
    I know NOTHING about lifts... Up until this point in my life Ive been a car audio nut. And this is my branching out to the exterior

    ok next question If I get the 4 pack from the link in my first post.
    does it raise the rear? or do I have to get some sort of leaf spring package also?

    I pretty much want an all around 2.5" Lift

    what are the suggestions?

    Shocks will not lift the rear you will have to put in new springs, an add-a-leaf, or (god forbid) lift blocks.

    I highly recommned Sonny and Downsouth Motorsports for the Bilsteins. Call and tell them you are a member and get the discount. Great service, best price, and fast shipping.

    I set mine at 1.75" (I really, really had to fight the urge for 2.5") and with the rear TSB I still have a little rake. If you area dead set on 2.5" then get the Toytec AAL for Tacoma's that already have the TSB done. I think it was something like $79.

    And no I am not from Willis!!!!!!! :)

    They made an exception since I modded it with the 5100's. At 2.5" the mobile home rides a little rougher, especially when the wife and I are having relations :eek:
