    Here's a good place to start.
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/197516-2nd-gen-eibach-toytec-gallery-thread.html

    I know you said you don't like to search but if you search Eibach, there are a whole lot of threads that come up.

    Eibachs on 5100's set at .85 would get you around 2.5" of lift. It will be a stiff ride, you don't nose dive under braking or 'roll' in corners. You will notice it being a lot stiffer on the chopped up, pot-hole infested Boston city streets. Out of the city though, you'll love it.

    I think i would be fine at 2.5 lift and no ucas. Just for a few months untill i get the ucas later.

    Personal preference. Some people run this lift and never get new UCA's, others can't stand the way it drives and go for new UCA's right away. You won't be able to get your alignment within spec but you can drive it with the factory UCA's.

    I have 5100 @ .85 and eibachs on a dbl cab short bed. I only have the TSB in the back and I'm level. It rides rough though even with an All Pro bumper. Before the bumper the truck was sitting the same also. I would just keep OEM coils and clip the 5100s @ 2.5. Or just get some OME 885 springs. I don't know why I didn't do that originally but I didn't get the lift I expected out of mine. Also, I have factory UCA's, you won't break them. They are only needed to correct alignment. You shouldn't encounter this until 3".

    You won't break the factory UCA, it's just an alignment issue at 2.5" of lift. I also agree with ffemt, if I were to do it over again, I think I'd go for OME coils due to the lower spring rate. 885's for around 2.5" of lift, 884's for around 2" of lift.

    I have stock Uca's but . As soon as I have the extra cash I'll be upgrading . pugga is right they can't get the alignment in spec . At least the 2 shops I went to.

    Thank you. For Some people it rides fine and other people they say its stuff lol. It depends on the person. I kind of like a stiffer ride so i think the combo would be fine for me. I dont want a huge lift and have to replace alot of the parts so thats why i want this lift. 2.5 to three inches is a good lift for me. I;ll just keep the ucsa now intill i can buy some aftermarket ones later. Thanks dude.

    ya i know i wont get it factory spec with lift and stock ucas but it should be fine for a few months untill i have the cash. I wanna see if i can get a few mass tacoma people for a mod day and maybe help me install my lift. Dont feel like spending up to 1,000 for labor to install it when the parts are only 700 lol.

    I don't mind helping but I can't have it at my house . I live in a townhouse . You should put it out there maybe someone has a good location . I can bring my tools.
