    Hey this is my first post and I thought I'd start off here since a lift is the first mod I plan on making. I've been reading for the past week or so and I think I've decided on a lift.

    I am about 4 days away from getting my 2005 trd sport double cab and I plan on running the bilstein 5100's all the way around set at .85 and the eibach coils. I'm looking for a level look with a slight rake. Will I need a full 2" aal to achieve this or can I do it with a 1.5". I'm also thinking of getting spacers for up front but have heard that you shouldn't combine spacers with this lift. Any truth to this? Also I'd love to see some pics of this setup as well. Thanks.

    i would go ome 885 and bilsteins at zero.....with an add-leaf.....eibachs and .085 will give you more than 2.5 which UCA"S will be needed

    I thought anything less than 3" would be ok before new Uca are needed. I plan on getting new ones I just don't have the money right now. Would I be ok running

    eibachs- 1.6"
    Billys at .85
    With a .5 driver side and .25 pass side spacers.
    Would this give me a full 2.85 lift or a little less? And adding the 2" aal in the rear should put it close o stock rake/ level right? And I plan on getting new ucas about 6 months down te road, would it be ok running it with stick uca for the time being?

    I guess what I'm really trying to ask is how much higher is the rear on a trd sport dc and will this set up be 2.85 up front and will it be level or have some rear rake?

    i would like to say you will be fine....but if it does not align up well then you may have to get UCA's.....common rule around here is 2.5 before needing UCA's.....i was just asking this same questions myself not tthat long ago:eek:

    Thanks wolf dog. I've always loved your truck and that's exactly what I'm looking for. How does it ride? Do u think new control arms are required? What size tires are you running?

    Rides awesome.

    No ucas. They got my alignment in pretty well too. Have no issues with it.

    Tires are 285/70/17.

    And, thanks!

    What kind of trimming did you have to do? And what backspacing did you go with

    Note this was right after installation thats why the rear looks higher, its level now.
    I think with the Eibachs and 5100s @ .85 the lift will still be 2.5

    Homertaco grill, Light Racing UCA's, 2.8" front lift (5100's at 0.85 setting and Eibach springs) 2" AAL with rear 5100's, Wet Okole seat covers fr/ bk. 17 x 9 Incubus Crusher wheels w/ 4.5" backspacing. 30% tinted front windows.
    I have this set up and it is great. I would go with the 2" AAL myself, as it provides a bit of rake which is nice for when you have a bit of a load. Otherwise it's not super noticeable. I got 2.6" of lift up front and my alignment is acceptable, but I bought some Light Racing UCA's just to get it perfect, because that's how I roll. Pics in my gallery.

    Im gonna keep myself tapped into this one, im looking at the same setup.. prob wont be able to swing the eibachs right away but the 2" AAL and 5100's will be ordered by march..
    I do have one question... theres WAYYYY too many threads about this... and they all say different things.. so to get a clear answer ill ask here...
    When i get the 5100s and AAL, what setting for the 5100s... and when i get the eibachs what setting?

    With the eibachs paired with 5100's the only two settings you can have the 5100's at is "0" or ".85".

    So if you get just the 5100's first, set them to 2.5. Once you get eibachs, set them to .85.

    TRD skid painted black,
    I did the exact same setup on my 09 dbl cab prerunner.
    Eibach 1.6 springs, billies at .85 and a 2" AAL.
    I would go with same springs at 0 and 1 1/2" AAL if I did it again.
    We could not get enough caster and was darty on the highway ( you need to stay on the wheel to keep it straight as it will tend to move rather than go straight ), so get adjustable upper control arms to keep it in alignment specs.
    The 2" AAL with the front lift created a driveline vibration which required shims on the rear axel and there is still a slight 20 mph vibe.

    All this said the little bit lower it will sit will make driving more fun.
    To raise it more get taller tires or be willing to adjust the problems

    Just my story and with my 4X4 dble I went with OME shocks 885s first and now 886s with all the extra weight I added with a 1 1/2" AAL
    No vibes and I may still need UCAs but I have not had it aligned since the 886s went on a couple days ago.
    Good luck and keep us posted.
