    So I finally got some leave and when I got home I had some fresh Blistein 5100's(all 4 no pics of me doing the back tho) waiting for me. Put em on today without to many hiccups tell me what you think. the rear is completley stock no tsb or aal and i set the front to 1.75" it leveled it to where the back end only has 1/16" of rake exactly what I wanted also included some pics of the process itself. wouldnt have been able to do it without TW.

    first I set up my office

    then got to work, tore the whole front apart myself and but I had some help from my dad and stepdad after i got back from NTB after getting the coils on the new shocks.

    My total cost came out to 282 for all 4 shocks,46.64 for NTB to put the coils on and 70 for an alignment I'm glad I did it myself the local shop wanted 200 just to put on the front :eek: thanks for all the comments

    Just under 400 thats not bad at all. I was really thinkin about doing this but I called few shops and they wanted 120 each side and then alignment of 120 so close to 700 and heck no I cant afford it. But if I can do it myslef then it still maybe an option. How hard was the front?

    the front wasnt that bad and i have never done anything like it as long as you stay calm and read the instructions carefully it goes pretty smooth it took me about 3.5 hours which is longer than most but without any expierience i considered it a win.

    Yea I was talkin to a buddy of mine and he was saying 15 to 30 mins and he could have the front done. Course he has all the right tools and lifts to do it. Just dont know if I trust him with my Taco

    I installed mine last night. Had them in the garage for about a month so I decided why not. My initial drive was fantastic! Silky smooth on the hard bumps and controlled too. I had 3 year old Icon coilovers that were pretty much shot and so I will send them in for a rebuild. I don't know if I will install them again. Haha. time for an alignment now. What are caster are you guys setting it to? I know stock is 2.4. I have 265/70/17 tires. TSB springs in the back.
