    5100's are the way to go man. They are not that much more expensive that a leveling kit and they will not cause extra strain on suspension parts that the leveling kits may cause.

    5100s. In addition to what Jay stated, if you decide later to go with a coilover, you can still use the 5100s (e.g. toytec adjustable coilover). With a spacer lift, you'd have to replace the shocks if you later decided you want a coilover.

    5100s are a nice way to go, because you get an upgraded, higher performance shock, and the ability to level or lift the vehicle at the same time.
