    Hey guys, I have an 07 double cab 4x4 with the 5100's set at 1.75" and it sits perfectly level with the TSB rear leaf springs.

    My basic goal is to get a full 3 inches of lift...

    Since I already have the billy 5100's im just going to get the ome 885's and set my billys at 0", but how thick of a spacer do i need to be at 3"?

    I do need 885s instead of 884s right?



    Also since I already have the rear TSB, what inch add a leaf will get me level with the 3" front lift?



    Finally, what is a decent quality but fairly cheap upper control that i can get to help with my alignment?



    thanks for any help!

    You may be able todo it with 1/4" spacers , or you can set the billies at .85

    The LR UCA is a good option

    yeah i was looking at the LR UCA's, but do you think a 1/4" spacer will be enough to get the full 3inches? I kinda want to stay away from setting the billies any higher than 0"

    I got 2 1/2" of lift from the 885 coils on my DCLB 4x4 with no spacers .

    The 1/4" top plate spacer provides approx 1/2" of lift .

    Doing that will give almost 4" lift.

    1.5"


    The best thing to do is measure teh front and rear. Then add the correct amount of lift to the rear to make it level with a 3" front lift.
