    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.

    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.

    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.

    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc

    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.
