    I always wanted a Tacoma, finally got one in April. I bought a 2017 Tacoma TRD Sport 2WD, I am loving it. Have done a few quick mods. Now looking to get educated on a lift. Would like to just level the front with the rear... there are a lot of good conversations on the subject, just getting a little over whelmed :confused:. Looking forward to being a member !!

    Thanks everyone for the welcome !! I know I can find this information somewhere in the Forum , but I thought I would ask. There is 1 1/2 inch differential between the front and back. A shop is telling me that all I need to level it is Bilstien 5100s all the way around without any other mods. Are they correct ? Will I need other parts ? I don’t plan to off road , just pavement driving. I am just looking for the level aggressive stance.
    Thank you for your help !!

    You can level it with just 5100’s and your stock coil springs. You don’t even need the 5100’s in the back of you just want it level. But they would probably improve your ride.

    Welcome! I've heard here that the take is designed to be minimal when the bed is unloaded, but level out (mostly) when loaded at recommended capacity. There's a plethora of leveling kits, but if you just did the Bilstein 5100 front shocks and adjust them you can level it out without affecting ride comfort much.
