    ok so i plan on pulling the trigger on a lift by the end of the weekend. I have been looking at the 3" procomp with the new struts and springs but have heard they ride rough. i know that any lift will make the truck ride rough but one guy said it rode like a wagon with metal wheels and that bothers me. So i am now looking at this kit below from Toytech. its complete 5100's and Eibachs any one with this set up got any input, complaints? Hows the ride would you change your pick next time i have a budget of 1500 and i am already planning to get LR UCA's. Thanks for the help!

    Only procomp experience I've had was with the strut spacer from them that I used for a couple years. It leveled out the truck and rode pretty smooth, close to oem drive style. Bought it as a noob but never complained.

    Just put 5100/eibach up front yest. Set at the super common height of .85, so far so good. It rides great man. I did a ton of research on here before I pulled the trigger and I was supr comfortable in knowing what I was buying. I put the 5160's in the rear, plus aal, and I can't complain about going that route either when ordering.

    Yea def....there are build threads on here with pictures for toytec lifts. But I cannot find a complete one yet, so I am going to try and make another one.
    I compiled a lot of data from many other threads to get all the information I needed.

    I think you made a wise choice.

    I love my Eibach 5100 combo on my 1999. Rides great on road, it's stiff but absorbs everything it should. On dirt roads and trails it's a different truck from my factory suspension.

    You should be happy with the set up you purchased, I am pretty confident to say that it should ride better than if you would have bought the procomp lift.
