    K&N Drop in Bilstein 5100 front and rear Toytec/Eibach front coil lift springs TC UCA Icon 3 leaf aal Cab Chop
    I just got a 2013 prerunner I want to lift it about 2 or 3 inches. I know zero about lifting a truck.
    People say just raise the front with a leveling kit 2". My truck seems level already.
    Do I use 5100's with UCA is that the way to go. Then would i have to add leaf spring to rear.
    Dose 2-3" lift change drive shaft, brake lines ect..
    Rim size 17-18" ?
    Tire size? Brand
    Any advice or help would be appreciated Thx..

    Someone correct me if I an wrong but if you stay under 2.5-3" of lift you can use your stock UCAs. There is a bit of controversy over this but its a general rule of thumb.

    If you have the TSB done, 4 leafs in the back, then installing 5100's at 1.75" in the front will give you a level ride and make it look a lot better.

    What kind of driving will you be doing mostly?

    5100's in all 4 corners will be perfect then
