    After a few weeks of research and going through every suspension thread I could find I decided on my new lift:

    Eibach w/ 5100 (0.85) Front (should give me 2.45")
    5100 Rear
    1.5 AAL for the rear (may not install)

    Before:

    After:

    It seems that I only gained 2" in the front!?! So as the truck sits now I won't need the AAL in the rear. This is a Canadian truck with 4 leafs in the back.
    I'm perfectly level :drunk:

    Was expecting at least the 2.45" in the front but this will do....may have a 1.5" AAL for sale!?! Might add UCA's and spacers w/ the AAL???? We'll see how Santa is feeling next month!

    Center Hub to top of wheel well.

    RF Before: 20.5" After: 22.5"
    LF Before: 20.25 After 22.25"

    Rear is sitting at 22.5" both sides with the 5100's Center Hub - Top wheel well.

    I'm satisfied with the way it turned out...rides great....still needs an alignment. No pulling or vibes right now!

    The wheels on right now are my Winter Beaters!!!

    I think it still looks good leveled. Like you said you can always lift it more in the future. Where did you order your eibach's from?

    This is the lift I'm planning. How's the ride quality compared to stock?

    Ride is great...still waiting to get into the alignment shop, but it runs straight, no vibes/pulling. Hopefully stays that way after the alignment. I'm hoping to get away with the stock UCA's for now. We'll see!

    You should have no problems with alignment. Lifting only changed your camber so it shouldn't pull, it would only make your tires wear unevenly. Truck looks great though!

    Go up on the 5100's and install your AAL. You'll push your entire truck up a little :)
    I mean, you have more notches on those 5100s and you already have the AAL!

    So Eibachs are ~1.5 inches taller than stock coils?

    They are not. They don't need to be 1.6" taller to lift the truck 1.6" because of the nature of the IFS. Think of a fulcrum under a see saw . If you raise it up an inch, the high end of the see saw will raise up more than 1 inch.

    Gotcha! So are they taller at all? or stiffer for less sag?

    I'm not positive but I think they are both slightly longer and slightly stiffer. Both of which accomplish lift.

    Yes the Eibachs are stiffer and taller by about a coil i think.

    This is CND$ but Thats 4X Billies ($420), Eibach springs ($150), 1.5 AAL ($80). you could probably do this set up cheaper in the US. + $130 installation.

    Bought springs and AAL from Toytec
    Billies 5100 from Essex Dist in BC

    One way or the other us Canadians get jaked on higher prices in Canada for the same stuff or high shipping costs from the US. :confused:

    Plus don't you guys have to pay a sales tax / VAT type deal on everything too?
    See, over here you don't get charged a sales tax if you order something online and the store doesn't have a physical retail location in your state. Amazon FTW for example :)
