    so, I here people say get 5100's and set it at 2.5 and you'll love it, but I hear about as many people say get 5100's and set them at 0" get some good coils and put them on your truck for the same 2-3" lift..... well I want the best ride quality I can get on a budget and can't afford both new nice coils and new 5100's..... so what would be better for the truck and the ride new cheaper stock
    replacement shocks and some better coils like eibach/toytec OR 5100's set at 2.5.....


    also does anyone know where I could get new leafs for not a ton, all I can find is racing 10 packs for 500-sh OR one aal for 75-sh mine are shot and I would like a new pack.

    I got some 5100's on my 2 gen bout 2 months ago.....so far so good, you can try'em, and if you dont like'em you can allways can go with new coil springs....only thing i don't like about them, is that the lift pull your weels a bit to the inside of the truck, not a biggie tho....can live with it, or get new wheels or spacers....
