    That's all you'll need. You can set the front to 0, .85, 1.75, or 2.5.

    If you go above .85 you'll probably need an add a leaf in the back to level it.

    Your best bet for a nice good ride would be to get that kit, and set the front to .85 inches of lift.

    Then you'll have no need for new upper control arms or add a leaf. And have a great ride.

    FYI, this is all Second gen 2005 and up. The link I gave you was for second gen. But it looks like you figured that out and got into the 1st gen second there.

    Not sure about the 1st gen settings.

    Yes. Just make sure u order the right year setup for your truck.

    What are tour goals for the lift? How high do u want to go?

    The rear 5100's don't lift at all. They accommodate for a block or AAL of 1-2.5 inches of lift. AAL might stiffen the ride, but will be better than a block.

    You'll need a coil spring compresser.

    And the adjustment is easy. It's just a snap ring that you pull off and put at whatever setting u want.

    Yes, they come stock with them if you have the TRD package, they should have been Blue and Yellow, right?

    U can get an AAL if your lifting upwards of 2 inches or so. Look around at some threads to see some of the combinations people use. I'm not quite sure what height front lift and what size AAL will make it level.

    I know some tacomas come stock with bilsteins. Again, I'm not too familiar with 1st gens.

    Post a pic of ur truck and suspension and we can tell if it's lifted or not.

    If you get this new lift, it will just be replacing whatever was on before, not providing additional lift.
