    Hey guys,

    I know this might be the millionth thread similar but just want an OK or advise.

    From reading all over this forum I've decided my goal for a lift is to do 5100s all around, eibach springs and the TSB in back with an AAL (Then tires after I wear the stockies or have funds). I don't have anything or the TSB yet. Get me good lift and nice ride which is what I want..

    I'm going to the Pismo Beach (Dunes) TW run next weekend (26th) and I have an itch to mod by then. I'm thinking I can start with the front 5100s at 1.75, and schedule the TSB for next week to get the rear leafs and an alignment before the weekend.

    But...Should I wait to get all four 5100s?
    Then later upgrade to eibachs and AAL (with another alignment)? I'd save $70 on rears if I get all four pkg with Downsouth Motorsports, but its spending $120 more than just the front.

    I'm kind of in the same boat...I need the spring TSB, but can't take time off work to get it done. I'm planning on installing the 5100's front and rear before I go in for the TSB, so I can get it aligned for free.

    If you are thinking about the possibility of getting the 5100's for the rear, I would do it all at the same time and save the money you will end up spending on another alignment. It might actually offset the money you spend on the 5100's now...especially with the DSM discount.

    I didnt't think you needed an alignment when swapping out the rear shocks since they do not add lift...?
