    ok so i have decided to lift my 05 tacoma dbl cab long bed and get rid of the big rims look... i have sat on here for the past 3 hrs and researched the site about spacers vs the 5100s so on and so forth... to get started its gonna be for looks i like the feel of a truck that sits up higher so i am looking for the right choice that wont break the bank but will last.. i was hell bent on the toytec 3" spacer but then i saw the 3" that had new coils with a spacer whats the difference??? then i saw alot guys on here running the 5100s??? i am so confused right now... all i want is my truck is about three inches of lift and to be able to put a thicker tire and still maintain a decent ride quality??? PLEASE HELP!!!!

    My suggestion is this. You won't need the DD though.

    5100's all the way around. Front set at .85. Camburg Spindles. Camburg Uniball 1.25 UCA's. Total Chaos LCA skid plates. Custom Deaver 10 pack rear leaf spring. BFG AT KO's 285/70/17, Weathertech floor liners, Wet Okoles. Midland CB/PA, Firestick.

    The 5100's are the best quality bang for the buck - the front's are adjustable and will had about 2.5 inches of lift. The ride quality is better than stock billies that come with the TRD package.

    The 5100's were the first modification I did. Then came the Camburg 1.25 Uniball UCA's and the Camburg Spindle lift - and now working on the rear leaf spring set up. Still riding the 5100's. I am sure that I will get some Fox Shox down the road, but for now...yes, I am hooked! I am happy with the set up and ride they have provided so far.

    If you are thinking about upgrading down the road, go with the 5100's on all 4 corners. You dont have to break the bank with the High Performance or LT coil overs and remote reservoir shocks - front set alone could cost over $1000. The 5100's are very respectable.

    On the other hand...If you are just looking for a little lift for the daily driver - Spacers and blocks will be the cheap and easy way to go. Rear blocks will run less than $100.00 and front spacers are less than $100.00 plus install.

    The best ride and alignment lift for a 2 by is hands down new spindles but they come at a cost. The general consensus (as stated before) is that the 5100's are the best bang for the buck if you don't have a grand laying around.

    Not to hijack the OP's post, but if using this kit^, and wanting to run 285/70/17 tires, would wheel spacers be useable if lift was set to 3"? Or would their not be enough clearance?
