    The simpliest way to level your truck would be to buy front Bilstein 5100 shocks and a set of Toytec-Eibach coils that lift 1.5-2" . This should just about level a stock truck I think

    5100's with stock coils and arms, set at 1.75" and you'll be set. Or like homer said....you can get spacers for pretty cheap

    I am in Canada, so my truck came with a 4 leaf pack but yes American trucks can cash in on a TSB for an extra leaf. Perhaps they give you a whole new leaf pack? That would be a bonus.

    that would be sweet. i know its probably been asked a 1000 times but while im getting all this great info, do the offroads sit any higher than the sports? i know the sports have stiffer sway bars, just didnt know what other changes with suspension had

    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    I thought the TSB only applied within 36 months/36,000 miles

    I am not 100% on this, but I think they are the same suspension. The big difference with the OR is the rear diff locker
    I just hear about it on TW. For some reason they build the Canadian tacos with 4 packs...which aren't much better

    Check out member 4wd's thread "spring refurbishing". Works like a charm, won't break the bank, and with a little work you'll have a rear leaf pack that will compete or beat the name brand rear replacement leaf packs.

    Hella Black magic lights, HID headlights, HID fog lights, CB, Yeasu 817ND HF Ham, Warn VF8000 (bumper coming, still deciding on HWMS vs US Offroad)
    I have a 2009 DCSB TRDS with newly installed OME Dakar's on rear with 5100's set at 1.75 in front, I want to re level the front after the Dakar install, Have Hidden HWMS bumper with VR8000 winch installed, I am trying to get equal lift to match OME leafs without UCA change out. I am between the OME 887 or the elbach coils, I know there are 2 different Elbach coils. what would be the best one to get. Not too concerned with ride (stiff) because its a truck, I want whats best for my setup and to level out with the OME dakars without changing the UCA's and to be able to get all alignment settings done spot on, Oh yea, running 265x75x17 Goodyear wrangler AT/S tires on stock 17" stock rims. I will do off roading, no major rock crawling unless required to once in blue moon to get where I need to get.
    I have read enough post to have my mind spinning, just as many good as bad on the 5100/887 vs elbach's. TT said to roll with Elbachs, but which one? I don't really want to go softer rate in case I add more weight, so, 887 or elbach's and if elbachs which ones and why? I just can't read anymore and come up with a good answer so I am going to those who have already done this. PLEASE HELP! ALSO, I am trying to do with as little "accessory" parts needed to complete. I just want to finish the front end and be done with it.
