    I have been looking into lifting my truck or at least leveling it out and after doing quite a bit of research, I know alot more but still don't know what I want. My questions are. If I wanted to go with one inch bigger tires than my 265/65's up to 265/70's, should I just level out the front end with Bilstein 5100's and what should they be set at? I don't really want more than 2 inches of lift because then 265/70's will look crappy so what are some other options. Thanks guys

    Yea i understand, im in the same boat! I think you should just get some 5100's! You can leave it at stock height until you get enough money to buy some larger tires!

    5100's set at 2 inches would be ideal

    Would I just need the front billys set at 2 and no billys in the back to be leveled out? Can I clear 265/70's without any lift?

    the 5100's are front adjustable shocks, with two inches of lift there will be a little bit of a rake but not bad you can throw a aal in the rear or a 1 inch block

    I have the rear spring TSB, gave me about 1 inch lift in the rear.
    you could also do a 1 inch AAL
    I have the 5100s up front set at .85 to match the rear.
    I have 265/75R16 Duratrac's on my painted stock rims.

    Seeing the TSB was free, the paint, tires, and 5100s cost me under a 1000.00 dollars. So my whole set up was about 1300.00.
    I would have to say i got a great deal.

    If I were to do 5100s in the front and rear 5100s with the TSB AAL, what would I need to set the front at to match the rear?

    Could I go 2.5" in the front without having to add a spacer in the rear (already have the TSB AAL)

    So do people actually add the Toytec AAL after the TSB? to go to 5? More or less I want the max lift for the $ with the 5100s..I'd like to go to 2.5" in the front if possible. I realize I might have to buy UCAs to keep it from drifting at higher speeds.
