    The 5100s will only lift the front, but you'll only get about 2.5". You'll need to get something for the rear though like blocks or AALs. I'd say if you're going for more than 2" of lift in the rear you'll probably need extended travel shocks.

    in that case...you may wanna get a set of coils so that you will keep the lift. if you get a set.......get some ome coils........great springs man. and if you get the bilstein 5100's.......keep them at the stock setting with the new coils. you can do just the 5100's and lose the spacer, but you wont have a full 3 inches of lift. by the way....welcome to tw!! im right up the road in rock hill.:)

    well....you can get a set of the ome 881 coils, and bilstein 5100's...............and set the billys up a notch if needed. and you need a diff drop also.............it corrects the angle so it wont kill the cv's. and dont really have anywhere round here to ride........most places got shut down. we do have a tacoma meet a few times every year though,at uwharrie up in nc. next one is in the spring.
