    I have searched this to death with no avail. Looking for advice. Extended rear 5100s arriving, have tsb on dbl cab sport. Normal 5100s coming too for the front. What setting should I use for the front to level it. Will be using the oem coils. As a side note, what does it mean when people say I may have to alter the rear bump stops? Make them higher or cut them down? Thanks all!

    With only the tsb is the rear there is no need for the extended length 5100s. The standard ones are a better choice for that application. 1.75" front will level you with the tsb rear.

    You'll want taller bump stops for the rear. You want to make sure you hit the bump stops before you bottom out the shock. The extended travel 5100's are made for 3 - 4" of lift if I recall correctly. Even with the Toytec AAL, the standard 5100's might have been a better choice depending on the type of driving you do.

    I have the TSB with a 1.5"AAL and extended 5100's. I went with the extended because my stock billy's were topping out over speed bumps. the extended 5100's fixed the problem.
    in the front I am running eibachs with 5100 at 0.85" and its pretty darn level. with stock in the front as stated 1.75" should work.
