    Just bought new front 5100's from DSM.

    I am about one click away from buying this OME lift w 885 coil springs and 2" Toytec AALs


    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=113&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    From reading for hours, I plan on installing the lift and setting the front 5100's at .85 and leaving the stock shocks in the rear to give it a 3" all the way around.

    Question is, will my stock rear shocks work with this set up for my 2007 Prerunner Dbl Cab? I do 99.5% on road driving, I am not worried about any off road issues at all.

    I am trying to do this w/o pissing off the ole lady by spending more than is needed.

    it would be a good idea to get rear shocks, less of a possibility of topping them out. Also I would first set the 5100s at 0 and see how much lift that gives you, and if you need more later go to the .85.

    i believe you need longer shocks with the AAL, could be wrong tho...

    You may be just on the edge of acceptable with your rear shocks ride zone. Also make sure your rear brake lines will reach without any issues.

    F#@$!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I already paid for the front pre adjustable 5100's only. I was being a cheapskate and saving the extra $110 not buying the rears.

    I was hoping being a mostly street truck, it would be alright.

    I read about 1.5 AAL's not needing new shocks a few posts ago.

    You need rear shocks. I put this same lift on and I ran the stockers for a couple weeks and they top out over bumps and speed bumps. It sounds pretty bad when they top haha

    just leave the rear stock until you get new shocks.

    I think DSM will help me out. I emailed them and they said they will switch the order.

    Thank you Down South Motorsports!!!!

    The more I think about it, I will probably just put in Toytec 2" AAL's in the rear along w the 5100's set at 2.5. AHHHHHHHH, I am so confused on this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1:confused:

    So putting the shocks at a 0 or .85 setting still gives the front lift?? I thought the settings meant how much lift you got in inches, as in 2.5 gives 2.5 inches of lift... Am I incorrect?

    I read in the suspension section that the OME 3" lift with 885 springs would have some sag in the front. to counter the sag, people setting the 5100's at .85 to give it a true 3" lift.

    yeah, but the 885's give about 2.5" of lift alone

    Oh that's right I forgot you were putting springs on as well. I'm sure it'll look great lets see some pics when it's done!
