    Fairly new to the forums so go easy on me and yes I have been using the search function for the past 2-3 weeks. I just had the TSB done and the rear sits about 3 inches higher than the front but I know it will settle about an inch so to level out the front I ordered up some 5100's. My question is should I use stock springs or should I just by the ToyTec adjustable coil kit for the 5100's. Not looking to go a full 3 inch lift just say something like a 1.75-2 inch lift. Will the ToyTec coils give me a much better ride? Thanks for the advise. LATER!

    They will give you a better ride. But I think you should try out 5100's with stock springs first to see how it rides. Alot of people like the ride with just the 5100's.

    But if the ride is too harsh for ya, you could always get the new springs. :)

    Yeah I thought about giving both a try but since I will not be installing these myself I only want to have to pay once for the install. I am nursing a level 3 AC separation in my shoulder an will more than likely have surgery so doing the work myself isn't an option at this point.

    ok. well then in that case.. I would just go with the Toytec coilovers, and just adjust them to the hight you want. They have a great ride, everyone loves them! Including me.:)
