    Welcome to TW

    The front ones have an adjustable spring perch that will preload your stock springs to achieve either 0.85", 1.75", or 2.5" of lift. the rear shocks do not provide lift, they only accommodate it. For the rear you can buy an add-a-leaf.

    Welcome to TW! To answer your question, the 5100's are known as a leveling option lifting up to 2.5". No need for anything else up front if this is what you want to do. Adding a block or a set of AAL's will give you some lift in the back!

    Edit: I see that you're a 1st gen Tacoma. I'm not sure if what I said is correct in your case. Sorry
