    Ok let me start with the fact that i do not know a lot about lifts! I ask chris4x4 for some help answering my questions and he has been a lot of help but i thought instead of bugging him again i would just put this up on here.

    Here goes, i have a tuff country 3" spacer type lift with an AAL. i want to junk that and go to a better lift system. based on chris's advice i am looking at bilstein 5100's and OME 885 coils.
    the truck already has LR UCA installed, and i am running 285/70/17 wheel and tire package.

    so with the bilstein and OME setup will i need to also get a top plate spacer and sway bar relocation bracket? what about a front dif drop kit?

    I guess what i am looking for is what all do i really need to buy to do the setup right, still get a full 3" of lift (i have not measured but i assume i am getting 3" of lift now out of the spacer kit). Also this is a dumb question but i would assume the existing AAL does not need to be replaced and my truck would sit level? i have not had the TSB on the rear springs done yet. my dealer did not want to do it since i already had the AAL, so is this something i should try to get them to do? how would the truck ride/look with the TSB done and an AAL?


    Thanks for all the help (by the way before someone say do a search i have i have been reading all afternoon and my brain hurts now, there seems to be lots of different answers out there)


    one more question on toytech's website they show a single spacer for the drivers side? i do not remember my drivers side being different then the passenger side so do you really just need a spacer on one side? that just seem wrong in my brain
