    I've got a 2011 4dr sport wanting to lift the front to level the height. Any help would be appreciated

    Hello and welcome to tacoma world brother! Go with bilstein 5100 adjustable shock (from 0-2.5 inches) these shocks are made for leveling and great ride quality! Pretty inexpensive also. You should order them from sunny out at downsouthmotorsports!:)

    I'm up the hill as well..... brakes love it... lol..

    If you just looking to level, yea 5100s are the way to go. Also, because this site will have you almost never being done, having the 5100s will still be a good shock of you add coilovers or new springs down the line. Welcome to TW. This is a gateway drug, and some of us will be starting a 12 - step program in the very near future.... lol.

    And if ya have some extra cash throw in some eibach 1.6 springs from wheelers;)
    This spring (eibach) is a really common combination with the bilstein 5100. Both put together is a great ride ! I have mine set at 1.75
