    I have decided to just go ahead and order some 5100's from DSM. I am going to use my stock coils and set them on the third setting. I am also going to get the toytec AAL tsb out back. I think it will be the perfect match up for my application. Thanks for all your input.

    The more I drive mine set at 1.75 I am more and more impressed with the set up. It looks and handles better than I expected, and for the price I thinks its the best mod for the money.

    you should be good with 5100's.. I just ordered mine! I will be gone all next week in VA for a school. Next weekend they will get installed!

    By the way, I chose to keep my stock Coils and set them at the third setting. I may add a aal later on, we shall see.

    Mine were sent out Wednesday, just the fronts for now. I have an '04 xtra cab and she sits pretty nose down stock. I'm gonna try the 2.5 setting and see how that works out.

    thinking about doing the same thing... but low on money. if I get the AAL on the rear but keep the stock TRD shocks till I can make some more money will it be ok? Im not planning on offroading anytime soon (the only thing the stockers would hinder would be the flex out, right)

    My set up is 5100's up front, 5125's in rear with TSB AAL and I must say it is superior to the stock setting.

    Long story on my install, but when all is set and done in a couple days it will be 2.5" up front and 2" ish in the rear.

    DSM is awesome, got to thank them for providing TW members w/great products at great prices...

    :cool:

    Maybe.. I think you'll be fine, do you have the rear tsb? I would personally wait until you can buy all four..
