    Looking to install 5100's all the way around without too many issues as far as driveline vibrations. I own 07 TRD SPORT DC 4x4 with 50,000 miles. Right now it is bone stock as far as suspension goes and I have the taco lean and front is about 2" lower than rear. My goal is to level out the truck but was wondering if I should get new coils while I am installing the 5100's due to the mileage on my truck. Is this the way to go? Any input would be appreciated.

    Eibach coils. 5100's all around. AAL. WickedFlow
    Taco lean refers to the truck leaning to the drivers side due to battery, gas tank, and driver.

    U can check out eibach coils. U can have those paired with 5100's. Set the front 5100's to 0 and you'd get 1.6inches of lift up front. Or set them to .85 and get around 2.5. You'll probably want an add a leaf at that point.

    Do u want bigger tires?

    285/60/18 would be nice. they are not that much bigger. Can I just go with 5100's and 50000 miles on my coils or should I bite the bullet and get the eibachs so I am not replacing everything over again?

    Not sure on the lives of stock coils, someone else should chime in on that...

    Also think about what kind of ride you want. Stiff/stock...

    The ride with my eibachs/5100's is awesome.

    To not hafta mess with vibes and new ucas and that kid of stuff stay at or below 2.5 inches.
