    07' DC LB TRD Sport 4x4
    BAK BakFlip Tonneau cover, 30% front tinted windows, AVS vent shades, Black Billet Grill,Pop& Lock, secondary air filter removed, Goodyear Duratrac's, Billies @ 2.5" on front, Billies on back w/ 1.5" AAL, Toytec Diff drop, NOKYA Hyper Yellow fog light bulbs, LaminX Weathertechs, Rear diff breather mod, BHLM
    Looking to build-up my 07' Taco TRD Sport DC LB with the following:

    Front
    1pr. Billstien 5100 shocks @ 2.5" keeping stock coils
    UCA's ??

    Rear
    1pr. ToyTec 2" AAL's (truck currently has the 3 leaf pack)
    1pr. Billstein 5100 shocks

    Wheels
    17" stock

    Tires
    Nitto TG's or Kumho Road Venture MT KL71 (265/70/17)
    Considering spacers w/ 275's and another brand tire!

    Truck is my daily driver and I plan on using it on the beach and on occasion some light trails in the Va. mountains!

    Questions
    1) Is it okay to use the stock front coils w/ the 5100 shocks?
    2) Are the 5100 rear shocks necessary?
    3) Think I'll need spacer to accomdate 275 tire on a stock rim? If so what size?
    4) Should I consider adding UCA's to the front?
    5) Is my propesed build-up good enough for starters? Any comments are welcomed!

    1) Yep!
    2) Not necessary, but provides a better ride if I'm not mistaken.
    3) Not sure about if you'll need it or not, but I'd highly recommend that if you do, go with Spidertrax spacers ONLY...
    4)Add it into the budget and make sure you have enough money for it all, but I wouldn't order it immediately with the rest of the stuff. I'd only buy them if you are having an alignment problem.
    5) Yep, that's a great start for beginners! You won't be disappointed!

    Travis - I saw a build-up on a 2010' somewhere on here this morining. He didn't waste any time at all!!

    Can someone tell me if I'll need anything else in addition to what is mentioned for my front and rear proposed items. Gonna be placing an order by weeks end and take to a shop for installation. I want to be prepared!
