    I have contacted Zone about this and they were very quick to respond with their lift is designed to work with OEM parts.

    I personally installed my 3" Toytec lift about 3 weeks ago with 5100's, 2" add a leaf, silver 620# Eibach springs, differential drop, skid pan drop and Light Racing UCA's. At the time, I was torn between the 3" lift or 6" and I opted for the 3". I am now going to install a Zone 6" lift and my questions are. 1) Can I still use my 5100's for front and rear? 2) would it be beneficial to keep the lift spring in the rear and go with a shorter block? 3) Since I will be adding a Relentless aluminum bumper very soon, will the 620# springs be enough to overcome the extra 50ish lbs.? 4) Remove the complete Toytec lift and use stock shocks and stronger springs for the new bumper? I will be running 33x12.5x18 with 4.5" BS. I like the look of the extra fender gap between the tires in which the 3" isn't giving me. I do not do any heavy offroading but I do ride in the woods and mud at an easy pace. Hopefully this newb question isn't too confusing. I have searched for my answers but can't seem to find anything elsewhere that is similar. Thanks

    1.no
    2.yes blocks are bad
    3.yes, just might want to add some preload to the springs
    4. I'm pretty sure stacking a 3" and a 6" lift would cause problems. Take the toytec out.

    I am now checking into Alcans for the rear instead of blocks. Thanks for your help.
