    The 5100 billys aren't a coilover they are just a shocks which will give you 2.5" lift when set at the top notch. Spacers ride like hell don't do it. If anything get the 5100 at 2.5 on stock shocks, cheapest way. You could get coilover kit from toytect for like 700.

    Also if you go with lift with the 5100 don't lift with anything else, use 1 lift type only don't stack.

    the 5100 will give you 2.5 inches of lift if you put it on the highedt setting. No need for the spacer. If you are set on the spacers just use them alone. If you plan on offroading go the 5100 route though, as the spacer will cause uneeded stress

    And with the 55100 if you want 3" get top plate spacer from toytec but nothing bigger than that

    The Toytec coilovers use Bilstien 5100s if memory serves me correctly.


    Stacking lifts is a bad idea.
