    I was wondering how much lift can be expected with just the Eibach springs and 5100 set a 0 bon a 4x4? Would I be o.k. with just the TSB leaf springs?

    I think anywhere from 1- 1.6" is what most get. I have the Eibachs and 5100s at .85 and got just over 2.5" on my short box double cab 4x4.

    Like I said... 1- 1.6". More for single cab 4 cyl, less for d-cab 6 cyl.

    Bumping this old thread up because I'm interested what other people are getting with eibachs and blisteins at 0 on 4x4. Also, please specify 6 cyl or 4 cyl and double cab or access cab.

    $oo many mod$ to be done....
    Yeah can we revive this thread before I start a new one LOL :D
    I was thinking about doing this setup on my Double Cab Long Bed. Which setup would be better? This is my DD, I don't hardcore off road, but occasionally like to drive crazy on your not so everyday type of terrain and in the snow.

    •Bilstein 5100's at 0.85 with Eibach 620lb Springs and a 1/4" spacer for the driver's side lean

    Or

    •Bilstein 5100's at 2.5 with Stock TRD Sport Spring, and OME 10mm Lift Enhancer Kit

    Any TW veterans or knowledged/experienced ones who would like to share....

    Eibachs will ride better than a heavily preloaded stock coil.

    To keep with the original purpose of this thread, I've got 5100's at 0, Eibach coils on a V6 Double Cab 4x4 and gained right about 1.5".

    I would do the 5100's at 0.85 with the Eibach's...it'll ride nicer. I have this set up, and just FYI, you may need to get some UCA's to go with it. I ended up with about 2.9" of lift on my 4x4 double cab, and even though my alignment was "in spec" it was far from great and I got tired of it. I purchased my Light Racing UCA's from Fat Bobs Garage for $380, got a "perfect" alignment, and have been really pleased ever since.

    go with the one i put in bold ^^

    and on a second gen with billies and eibachs set at 0 you should get 1.6inches of lift

    Right on guys for your suggestions and help. I want to get lifted but not at the expense of a harsh ride. I'm definitely going with the Bilsteins and Eibachs for the front.
