    Put my Bilstein 5100s and Toytec coils on last weekend. I set the Bilsteins at 0". I have the rear spring TSB done as well.

    Looks good!
    Just got mine on a few weeks ago, looks like a real truck now. Amazing what a difference just a little lift can do.

    Thanks for the compliments! I will post some before and after measurements tonight if I don't forget. I love the way it rides and handles now!

    2 questions for you - Are those the Eibach/Toytec coils (they look like it) and did you use the plate spacer for the 'lean'?

    Looks good, I've got the same set-up coming and I've got pretty close to the same truck!

    Yes, the coils are Eibach/Toytec. I set the front shocks on 0". I also used the 1/4" top plate spacer on the drivers side.

    Thanks, looks great! I was worried I'd end up nose high because I have a shell on the back. I measured before hand and I'm like 1-3/4" higher in the back now so I'll be close after I do this. Looks like you're still raked slightly which is perfect in my opinion!

    Looks good. Maybe it's the way the pics appear on my Phone, but it looks a little nose high.
