    So I have been talking to chris4x4, who has been very helpful, about my lift setup.

    I have an 01 SR5 Double Cab, second owner. My leafs right now are def in bad shape. They are more of a frown shape then a smile shape. Today I found out that I could get my leafs replaced under warranty by the 7th of next month. After doing that, Im gonna throw on bilstein 5100s with OME 881 springs for a level lift around 2.5 plus adding a leaf in the rear. After or before, let me know what you think, Im replacing my brakes, rotors, and shoes.

    Another thing, If the springs are going to do most of the lift, do I need adjustable shocks?

    Any advice is much wanted. Thanks.

    Welcome to TW. You do not need 5100's if you are getting aftermarket lift coils like OME's. However, many people run 5100's w/ OME coils but set the 5100's at the lowest settings. I suggest OME coils paired up with OME front shocks.
