    I am considering the 5100's and Eibach springs and I noticed alot of people have the same setup. I am a total newbie when it comes to lifts and I am hoping someone could advise me on what to do.

    Anyways here's the situation:

    I have a 2010 Tacoma Double Cab with the harsh ride TSB completed in the rear (adding an extra leaf). What do I need to lift my truck properly?

    Here's what I know I want:

    SUSPENSION:

    5100's - Any clue where I should buy them? Could someone send me a hyperlink on where to buy them?

    Eibach Springs - Any clue where I should buy them? Could someone send me a hyperlink on where to buy them?

    Do I need anything else for the lift?

    RIMS:

    18" KMC XD Monster's - Could someone send me the part # or what I need to purchase the right rims? Link?

    TIRES:

    275's or 285's? All-Terrain type tire - Any suggestions?


    Thank you to all that help! I am new to this and seems like searching doesnt get me anywhere.

    Cheers,
    Eric

    Downsouth Motorsports is where I'm getting mine. They're active on the forum and they have good prices.

    And that's the extent of my suspension knowledge. Others can help more, or the search button always works too.

    Eibach coils. 5100's all around. AAL. WickedFlow
    DSM as mentioned. Or I got mine from toytec.

    If you want to fit 285's you'll want to set your front 5100's to .85. You'll probably still rub a little still.

    Wheels, just make sure they have a backspacing of 4.5 or less.
