    but does anyone have pics of a taco with 5100s at 2.5" (stock springs) and NO aal in the rear?

    I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on this setup then eventually getting eibachs with uca's and an aal or new leafs in the future.

    ^^haha had a feeling...so stock at 2.5" is thatt bad huh?

    I guess if I end up pulling the trigger on those I'll probably get them set at the middle setting so it at least evens it up...hopefully my stock springs aren'y sagging too much and I get just a lil higher in the front

    If you want to sit completely level use the middle setting (i think its .75") If yu have it on the full 2.5" you will have yur nose pointed up.

    I have mine on the middle setting and it sits completely level.

    lol, no it won't be that bad, but the front will be about 1" higher than the rear, especially if the leafs are worn.

    the middle setting seems to be perfect with stock rear.

    ^^haha

    I suppose its not that hard to change it if I don't like the middle setting...

    other question would be how would the middle, or higher lift setting look with the stock wheels and tire size?

    a little goofy but not too bad. I have 265/75/16's on about 2" of lift and its right on the edge of looking goofy.

    eek...I need to go and double check my tire size but isn't stock 265/70/16?

    sounding more and more like the max I should go is the middle setting untill I get bigger tires, aal, etc...

    well shit...so eventually I want to have 5100s, eibachs, ucas, and aal or new leafs...

    what would be a "non-goofy" looking tire size for this setup...
    (I don't wanna get new tires then lift again and have to get new tires again just to make it look right!)

    Eh I put in OME coils and shocks (no preset) and it sits level,
    I don't think another .5 would be a big deal

    In my sig those are 265/75/16
