    Already got the 5100's and the 1.5 AAL for my lift, about to irder the Eibach coil too...what else should I pick up from ToyTec to do this lift?
    I don't plan on taking apart the front OE shocks, so should pick up the new front bushing/washers? And what about the U-bolts, should I get them here to (expensive), if so what size for a 4-5 leaf set-up? Anything else needed..
    I have a DC TRD Off-Road 2wd 2011, do I need the differential drop kit or sway bar kit?

    My goal is to set the front to .85 with the new coils and rear will have TSB (after I convince the dealer I need it) plus the 1.5 AAL added to complete my lift. I will pick up new UCA's (if needed) after an alignment is done.
    Just want to ensure I get everything in one order to complete this.

    As for the jack, will a 2.5 ton jack and stands work for lifting the truck up and supporting it while I work it? I thought about taking it to someone to install, but hell, I worked jet engines for 26 years, should be able to get this done (will take new shocks/coil to dealer to put together).

    Thx for all the help here.

    Don't forget the 1/4" spacer for the drivers side. That is if the taco lean is evident on your truck like it is on mine.

    Thx, will add the spacer.
    Anyone else comment on what I need to complete this.
    Looked at the UCS at Toytec, anyone else use these?
    Would like to place this order today..so input on what all is needed plz.

    Thx

    I will take the 5100,coils and parts to the local Goodyear shop to put all together so
    I can replace the OE one. So need to ensure I have all I need to take to them to put together.

    Also, which u-bolts would I need for a 4 or 5 AAL install, the 7.5 or 8.5?
    Will be getting the LR UCA with the order too, get it done all at once.

    Since you're 2wd I'm sure you don't need a differential drop kit, but I'm not 100% positive on this (I'm a noob at all of this stuff right now) and the sway bar kit I don't know about at all. I would assume the 2.5 ton jack and stands would be good enough...from pics I've seen on here it looks like people put 4" x 4" wood blocks under the jack stands as well.

    Hopefully someone with more experience can help you out more than I can.

    Thx for the info....
    Yes, there is a sway bar..I think all come with one, don.t they?
    But have seen no where any mention of having to reloacte due to new springs..guess I will search some more.

    I think the new AAL I have coming has a new center bolt with it..correct?
    As far as the U-bolts..how long..Toytec lists 2 sizes (7.5 and 8.5)

    Thx

    For u-bolt length get the 7.5in ones. The 8.5in ones are for lift blocks and such. I got 7.5in ones for mine and I'm getting axle shims and a 2in add a leaf from whelersoffroad.com that will fit the TSB leaf pack. Not aure for you but I got extended brake lines for in the front and rear for my lift, but I'm on 265/70R17 wheels and a 2in lift back w/TSB leafs and 2.75in lift front. Got mine lines from the "stickied" brakelines thread on here. Toytec AAL do have new center pins. As do wheelers. Yes all 2nd gens have front sway bar.

    Sweet, but do I really need a sway bar relocate kit? haven't seen mention of them in any other install thread here?
    I will be running 275/70/17 wheels eventually...but concensus here is stock breaklines are good.

    Thx

    Can't help ya there my coilovers came with them. They do use the Eibach coil springs for them. They are the Radflow coilovers. Haven't installed them yet, sorry.

    At work with my truck on the rack with the tsb leafs at full droop the rear lines are almost tight with a bit of play, but not much. Thats why i went with new lines and b/c of the 2in AAL for the TSB leaf pack.

    Read many posts and not a mention of replacing break lines in ones I read.
    I understand watching the lines when dropping the axle to install the AAL, but didn't see to many mentions of adding new longer lines.

    I am seeing if local dealer will do the TSB on Tue., so at worse case I would have the TSB done with the 1.5 AAL on top of that. Would that be cause for a longer line? Note: no off-roading..only street and bumps associated with this driving.

    Thx

    As long as they are careful it should be okay. Hopefully they don't give you some grief for it. If your not wheeling then you should be okay. I'm doing it b/c after all my stuffs on i will be. More flexing going on off road.

    Don't mean to thread jack here, but I'm wondering if I will need a swaybar relocate kit. I'll be using 5100's all the way around with stock coils and set at 1.75" in the front. Just going with the TSB leafs in the rear. Just looking to level my truck for the time being.

    Going by what I'm reading here I'll need the relocate kit, and just want to make sure.

    Thanks for the info. It wouldn't hurt anything if I were to go ahead and get the relocate kit would it? I'd rather install it and not need it rather than need it and not have it.

    Is it easier to change out the shock with the UCA out of the way?
    If I do both at the same time, seems it would be simpler.

    Any harm in pulling both out at the same time for the change?

    Thx

    Sitting in dealership, they have all parts in stock for TSB and didn't question anything. Waiting for them to install, sweet. So now I can order the Eibach to go with the 5100 and install that. Still can't decide if I should wait and see how alignment works out to pick up the UCA. A lot of money for something I may or may not need.....decisions.

    And still trying to figure out which rims/tires I should go with.
    Ain't upgrading fun

    Screw it,ordered the LR UCA when ordered the springs.
    But figures, Toytec is out of stock on the Eibach springs and may be a couple weeks before they get them in....guess that's what I get for waiting and thinking about things for to long.
