    Wahoo...u r fast...

    there are two nuts on the end link that I am seeing one that attaches to sway bar and the other attaches to the spindle

    Is that 52lbs for both nuts? Or is there a different specs for each?

    Gotta give mad props to the entire tacomaworld.com community and let everyone how awesome this site is...also a great appreciation goes out to Drew (DK2006Yota) who came by and provided a fellow tacoma owner with some much needed help and advice on what turned out to be a difficult install of 5100s front and back and a progressive aal in rear as well...Drew came by at just the right time to help us out and bring some tools and knowledge and we would not have been able to complete the install without him...and we would not been able to connect if not for this forum...I appreciate it Drew...thanks again!

    everything is installed...

    I need to get an alignment done badly though as I have a new truck only 500 miles on it and the front springs need to settle a bit from the install because I got about 3"inches of lift even though we set the spring to 1.75" setting. Is it extremely abnormal that I would have additional lift with new springs? We were very careful to install correctly so I do not think there was anything wrong with the install...

    at the bottom of the spring...where the spring rests? we installed the way the instructions showed...as far as the top configuration we just replicated the stock set up for everything above the spring...

    so yeah to my knowledge and research the perch where the spings rests at the bottom of the spring is in right and all the stuff above the spring is the same as stock...

    could it be that because the truck has less than 500 miles on it the springs need some time to settle?
