    Hi everyone hope all is going well,

    Anyway. ive read and re-read this section and I think i have finally come up with a a lift set-up. Im putting 5100's all around, TSB AAL, and 884's (i saw that solus694 was using 885's on his access cab -- why is this? the 884 sagging issue?).

    Does this sound like a good way to go?

    Also with the 884/885's and the front 5100's set to "0", how will the stance be. Will the rear be even with the front, or should i get the Toytec TSB AAL in addition to the regular TSB AAL. I am shooting for even or rear slightly higher.

    Thanks guys (and gals), :wave:

    884s are the "standard spring" to lift a stock access cab. The 885's may gain you a little bit more height or they can be used to compensate for heavier front ends (winch/bumper/light bars/etc)

    It's hard to guess what the height will be...They don't always come out the same. My guess is that you will be a little bit higher in the rear tho...but don't blame me if it's not so...

    My one question would be- Why, if you are going to replace the shocks, are you going with the 5100s over the OME shocks??

    Thanks for the info,

    Good question about the OME vs. 5100's. I originally was just going to go with the 5100's (stock springs) all around and the TSB AAL, but only after they arrived did i read about the not-so-good ride with the 5100's/stock springs. So i now plan to go with the 884 or 885 springs as well. Who knows, maby i should just return the 5100's and go with the OME's. Confusing sheeit.

    Thanks again,

    Ted

    Oh...You have the 5100s already...Makes perfect sense. I'm a fan of using parts that are built to go together...but I'm also a fan of not wasting money.

    Best of luck!!
