    Hi guys. I'm buying some 5100s soon but I need some help on how I should go about with the instalation. I want too keep my stock coils, ucas, and spindles but I will change them if it's necesarry. I am basically looking to raise the front end higher than the rear. I don't have the rear tsb. Also my truck is a 2005 trd offroad access cab.

    Set them at the 1.75 inch setting. You could set them at 2.5, but some people say you may have alignment issues, which would then require new UCA's to fix.

    If you want the front noticeably higher than the rear, as you stated in your OP, 1.75" won't be enough. You'll have to go up to 2.5". Some need new uca's at this setting, some don't.
