    I am about to run 33's, I'm going to buy some eibach 3" lift coils and bilstein 5100's. It says that with the bilsteins set at factory it will actually add 1 inch of lift for leveling? Is this correct? will i get 4 in the front or just 3?

    well now that i figured that out, I'll run 3 inches on the back too. I'm thinking for the back i'll get AAL's. I'll have to run the front at 4ish to level out i guess, but I wonder if my cv axles will run ok?

    Ok! Good advice! I'm going to do like you say and probably just go ahead and get my front diff drop just for piece of mind. Most likely ordering everything from Toytec so hopefully it will all go good.

    yea you can't go 4'' really without killing your CV joints.

    3'' is more then enough. A 2'' aal will level out the truck or slight bro lean. 3'' is levelish too and the 4''+is rake. when you pass 3'' in the rear you need extended travel shocks too and brake line and raise the BPV.

    Well i have 4.5'' of rear lift and i didn't puts those on for 4 months. Course i didn't wheel like that just street driving.

    the BPV valve definitely makes a difference tho, i felt a big difference when i did that. So really its prolly not a bad idea to do it with any lift.

    the extended brake like i think you'd be fine at just 3''. cause i was flexed out a few times and my line was pretty stretched but not terrible and that was a 4.5''. The line i got is super freaking long tho now. No way it'll ever get tight.

    no its not. I have the 5 pk with the AAL and its shorter then the last leaf. THe 5 pk only gives like 1.5'' of lift man. I have the AAL and 1.5'' shackles and i get about 4.5 or so lift.

    Are you joking?? That is completely unsafe!

    You should use duck tape instead.

    Toytec 2.5" lift., just the beginning. Front Builstein coil-overs fully adjustable from 0-3". 2" AAL in the rear with 2.5 degree shim. Total Chaos uni-ball UCA's.
    I agree with NMCQUEEN, get the toytec ultimate lift with the rear aal. I actually had a saggy leaf pack, and i haven't experienced any problems. I'm running 31's but i'm sure i could stuff some 33's under there with no issues (other than needing to adjust the bump stops so i don't rub when full tilt).

    Your best bet for tires/wheels i would go to tirerack.com (bought mine from them, all 5 for under 2K)(if you're ordering a combo they will mount and balance for you).

    Yes i highly recommend getting a longer brake line. I only have a 2.5" of lift, and when i dropped the rear drivers side during some wheeling i actually tore the brake line completely out of the fitting. Ended up driving all the way home using the E-Brake. Not fun, very dangerous, luckily i had a buddy in front of me that didn't mind if i bumped him in the rear to slow down. Still losing brakes is bad juju..
