    x2! bilsteins will provide a much better lift while allowing you to choose how high you want to lift the truck. i have a block and spacer lift, do not get it

    Are 5100s for offroading or can you put them on a truck just for lift just because it looks good?

    On that first page it says that the products won't fit on 5 lug Tacomas. It's just a general statement for every lift kit they sell but has anyone tried this on a 5 lug or know if it will work?
