    Eibach coils. 5100's all around. AAL. WickedFlow
    I have... 2011 trd sport 4X4 double cab. Currently has eibach coils and 5100's at .85. 2inch AAL.

    I'm running 285/70/17 duratracs with 4.25 BS wheel.

    I love this setup and put it on my truck within the first month of having it. But... I want a couple more inches
    (just like she said)

    I'm looking at the RCD lift. So my questions are...

    Can I run the rcd with my eibach coils and the provided RCD bilsteins together? And if so would my 285's look to small? Cause I don't want to go to a larger tire.

    Can I keep my 2 inch AAL and get a 2inch block in the rear? Instead of the full 4inch block.

    If the eibachs don't work with the rcd I'm totally okay with running the kit as is. I just love the look of the 4inch ish look and though I have minimal rubbing, it is still annoying.

    Here's my truck, if u think I should just leave it and I'm just having crazy pipe dreams... Chime in :-D

    I think you should leave it. Looks really good, thats about the height i'm looking for.

    Do you just have 5100's all around AAL rear and Eibach coils up front?? How much lift the coils give you and how's the ride?

    your 285's will look fine, you can put a 2 inch block with your AAL, im not sure about the coils with the new shocks...my guess would be no because you dont want to stack lifts. maybe im wrong on the coil situation but the rest is fine.

    The coils give 1.6 inches. Plus the .85 from the 5100's. So I'm somewhere around 2.5 inches of lift up front.

    I have 5100's all around. The ride is very nice, better than stock.

    The way I thought I understood it with drop bracket lifts... Is it lifts the truck while keeping stock geometry. Which would still leave room to lift the front an additional 2.5/3 inches.

    well you will only be gaining the 1.5 inches that the coils give you because you get different non-adjustable 5100's.

    you can do both... you'll only get 1.5' from the eibachs because the 5100s on the RCD are non adjustable

    Sweet, I pretty much got all my questions answered. I knew the new shocks were non adjustable and I would only get the 1.5 inches out of the eibachs. Just wondering how that would look with my 285's... Hmm

    Thanks for the compliments! This isn't really anything that will happen too soon, but it is something I'd like to do in the future for a little change :-D
