    Just wondering if anyone is running the TRD leveling springs on stock TRD Bilsteins without issues. My only worry is the shock my not be long enough to accomodate the the added length of the spring. I have a set of each that I am contemplating throwing on when my new tires get here.

    I may be wrong, but I believe a couple people have this set up with no problems... Just search around.

    Type in "Eibach" into the search and you will find a couple guys that have them on the TRD shocks. They aren't that much longer then the stock ones as they provide only 1.6" of lift. I could see if they were a 3" lift spring that could mean trouble sure, but 1.6"?!?

    From what I have gotten from searching through TW is that it works unless you go offroading then you might have problems.

    Got the rims and tires installed last night. Decided not to do the suspension and just wait till I get billies for the springs or just wait until we do some more Tacoma testing at work and see if I can get a full set up.

    Yes the 5100's were designed for use with stock springs.
