    Hey guys I was just looking at lifts and wishing I had the money to buy one and put it on my truck and was wondering what the advantage of doing lift springs with a lower shock height would be, or is it better to set the shock setting up higher and use just a standard height or stock spring....and the third option is I am making something out of nothing, which is very plausible. (pretty sure the previous is a run on sentence)

    lift springs with more aggressively valved shocks. OME springs with OME shocks, or just about any other springs with 5100's.

    TRD Sport 4x4 with a few things.
    Optima Red Top 34R, OME 885 / N140S + 5100 rear, TSB leaf pack, Camburg Ball Joint UCA, Wheelers Diff drop, AEM Brute Force Intake with filter wrap, Summit Super Turbo muffler, Llumar 5% tint, Pioneer single din head unit, PIAA 510 Ion Crystal Fogs in stock location, Sonar LED tails. Sway Bar removal. Charcoal filter delete. Stant 11509 Locking Gas Cap.
    I was running 5100s with stock TRD sport coils set @ 1.75" its a little too stiff for my liking. I've upgraded to Eibach silver 620lbs springs and will set them to .85 which is 2nd setting. I'll let you know how they ride within a few days!
