    My girlfriend just bought a new truck. Its a 4dr TRD Off-Road, locker and all. Its got 5,000 miles on it and she pretty much stole it for 21,500:eek:

    -Anyways I was just curious about her suspension set-up. Its obviously the Billi 5100's. But there is a top spacer plate. Is this alright? It seems to drive fine but I have read that top coil spacers are bad. Might be a stupid question but here are the pics. Also are those stock UCA's? thanks

    See build thread.
    No photos showed up. It could be the toytec ultimate kit.

    OR someone should put some spacers up top to correct the taco lean on any other set up.

    Did you upload them as attachments? You may want to try uploading them to your TW gallery and then just copy and paste the embed code to your original post.

    They are ok for a bit but try to replace them ASAP they screw up the suspension gemoetry... but new shocks and coils will always be way better. Yes those are stock UCAs. Tell your girlfriend about http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php

    im pretty sure those arent billy 5100's, they look like the normal stock billies that come with the TRD editions, and that is a spacer tho, not sure of what brand, but it is. She got a nice truck by the way. :thumbsup:

    those are not 5100's, those or the stock billies that come on trd's. looks like its stock springs/struts with a top plate spacer. looks like a toytec spacer but it would be ingraved on the spacer.

    looks to me like its a spacer kit with AAL in the rear. judging by those UCA angles, it looks like there is no diff drop on it either. hope this helps

    Thanks alot guys. My mistake, I meant to just say billies. Definitly going to make a change over to some toytec c/o. But just for refrence the truck drives great. Shes got 285/75/16 Dynapro m/t on it, minimal rubbing when turning sharp in reverse. The truck came with everything on it.

    Those are stock Yellow Billies with looks to be a 3" spacer. Just don't off road with it and you'll be fine.
