    I just did mine - Bilsteen 5100 @ 2.5 inches in front and Toytech 2" AAL in back. Cheap, good ride.

    Then I added 33" wheels and need adjustments:eek:

    Best for the money is the Bilstien 5100's. Any 2.5 to 3" lift with 285/75/16 tires is gonna require trimming.

    that's what i put on mine - i had to add 2.5 inch wheel spacers in front and then trimmed some of the plastic inside wheel rim with a razor - now no rubbing.

    I'll try and take a pic tonite after work and show you the difference.

    I think it cost me ~375 from Toytech for my level.
