    Bilstein 5100 shocks in the front are adjustable and will help level out your truck.

    you can actually lift level the front just fron the shocks? how?? lol...i'm nowhere close to understanding the suspension of the taco...

    and is there actually that much difference between the 65 and 75 series tires?

    thanks man...and i'm guessing you could do the same w/ the rear shocks? and from what i've looked up, the difference between the 265/65 and 265/70 is 27mm=1.06"...will it make that much difference?

    but more importantly, has anyone actually lifted the front by doing this? and how?

    I have no lift yet and my 265/70/17's rub only when truning hard left and hitting a bump, like a driveway or something. I've never gotten any rubbing while four wheeling and I cant see where the rubbing is so it must not be too bad. But I have 1/4 inch spacers behind my wheels to help clear the upper control arm otherwise it would rub there.

    Ok, so far this is what discided that I plan putting Bilstein Height Adjustable Front shocks, I don't think that there the 5100's, there at www.toyteclifts.com. The site says that it can be adjusted up to 2 1/2".

    Does anyone know exactly how much the front has to be lifted to be leveled?

    So, anyway, eventhough I lift the front are the 265/70-17's still going to rub? I don't think the rear would rub anywhere?

    If I put a 1" block lift on the rear and then lift level the front, should I have any problems?

    Hey Bayou -

    I think if you want to level your truck out, you will need about a 2-2.5" lift in the front. I have the 3.5" adjustable Donahoe coilovers in the front and its a bit taller in the front than the back, and i think i only have mine cranked up about 2" of the 3.5 possible. You have a 4X4 though so im not sure if they are exactly comparable. Also, alot of guys with a 3" lift run 285X70 OR 75's - i think. good luck buddy, and when you get it done post some pics!

    I just got my 5100's today! I finally decided what i am going to be doing with my truck.:D

    I don't know what I should go with to level the truck yet, 2" or 2.5". Depends what looks better with 285/60-18's.:cool:

    I bought a 1" rear block spacer incase I discide to use it with the 2.5".

    Also a diff drop from toytec lifts.

    Thats what im doing- setting the 5100's (when i get them) to 2.5" and getting either a 1" or a 1.5" block for the rear.

    I will be running BF A/Ts 265/75-16s prolly.

    I will also go ahead and put the diff drop, axle shims and carrier bearing drop kit.

    I am figuring this is gonna run be about $1350-$1400 respectively with the most expensive thing being my tires at $759 installed.
