    I have a 2011 reg cab 4x4, with 2.25 spacer in front and 1" blocks in the rear. The rear now when I hit a bump feels like its topping out. I was told I could get away with using stock shocks with 1" of rear lift, but it sure rides like shit.
    I need a temp fix. I saw on toytec they have stud extenders. Would those work for a few months until I get the bilsteins?

    Block lift + OEM shocks = poor ride, and topping out of the socks. You need shocks designed for more lift.

    Get the 5100's in the appropriate size.

    ok, so i decided to order OME's all around and 884s. ( did alot of searching so I got 90% of my answers)
    with the ome and 884s, what do you think my final height will be up front? I really want to stay around 2" I am not going to do any top plate spacers.

    the rear- think my 1" block will be fine with the ome or should i get a 1.5"?

    remember, its going on a reg cab, thats why i got questions. most everything i found was for ex. cab or dbl cabs, except for especks, and he used 885s.

    thanks in advance

    You'll probably get 2 - 2 1/2" from the 884's
