    should i go with bilstein 5100s then? cause it would be way cheaper than kings, but they said kings are great for high speed, and taking speed bumps and pot holes, idk im not sure

    there are a ton of guys on here that run the 5100's and love them. they are a nice, cheap way to lift your truck. set the lift any one of the the 3 setting they have and you are good to go.

    with coilovers you have to worry about having them rebuilt over time.
    if your lifting over 2.5" its nice to get aftermarket UCA's.

    Are you planning on doing alot of offroading at high speeds? - if so coilovers (like the kings you want) won't aren't going to be enough you would want new upper control arms and probably new spindles or get spindle gussets to beef up the spindle.

    Also consider just getting a full long travel kit if you are going to be mobbin it hard in the desert.

    I have new coilovers because i got a good deal on them and it made alot of different just driving on the street and light offroad.

    For the rear suspension just an add a leaf is a cheap cost for a smoother ride and a little lift.

    Yeah I'll just get the 5100s and a leaf in the back, it's nothing to serious, there's accasional braking bumps and pot holes, but if the 5100s can handle them I'll just do that and SAve a lot of money for other stuff, should I get a set of UCAs And ebach coils?

    if you want to. the billys will only give you 2.5" of lift


    your best bet is to just go to toytec's website and pick you a 3" lift that involves new shocks and or springs (billys or the OME lift) and you will be fine.

    Alright, so the 3" lift will level my truck out and give it the pre runner look In the front? Cause I'm keeping my back stock height

    Yeah I'll keep the leaf out so it rides smooth, but this is all on hold cause my truck isn't running right, it's starting to shake when I get around 30-50 mph, so hopefully my warranty covers it, but thanks for the input guys, so 3" lift in front, bilstein 5100s all around, and elbach springs

    dude i'm a little confused what your trying to accomplish here, the spacer you have on it right now is probably 2.5 - 3" of lift so taking that off for something else won't get your front end much higher. If you aren't doing much offroading or atleast very hard then you will be fine with the spacer lift you have on it right now.from the look of how your truck sits it almost looks like it has an add a leaf in the rear but could just be the picture cuz it looks pretty level. If you want it to be alot higher in the front you should look at a CST or Camburg lift spindle. Also when i said i missed the smooth ride i was saying it rides alot smoother with the add a leaf in the rear, when i took it out i realized how rough the stock ride is

    No I want to keep the same look, I just want to loose the rough ride from the spacers that's all, my truck is between .5-1" higher in the front, and I feel every bump off roading, and from what everyone said the bilsteins will take the bumps and make it smoother and that's what I want, and if the add a leaf helps I'll do that to even if it levels out

    Your truck is definitely more than 1" higher in the front,
    The spacer alone looks about 1-1/2" to 2" which pushes all your geometry down giving you almost 3" of lift.
    You can buy my icon coilovers from me for $800 and your current shocks and spacer :D

    I dont know about you but the AAL I had in my last taco rode like shit and the tsb springs are only a little better than that...

    AAL will not make your truck smoother, it lifts it and gives you a little more payload capacity in the bed. adding leafs to a leaf pack will make it more stiff.

    but if you wanted smooth you could take out the overload leaf and get a 3 aal pack from either icon or wheelers off road. that replaces the one super thick spring with 3 thinner springs that are easier the bend thus making it smoother

    Well wouldn't thinner leafs make it bad to put stuff in the bed?
