    3" coil over suspension lift and 3" body lift on 35's.
    I have a 2001 Tacoma extended cab and i put a toytec 3" suspension lift on it and it sat lower in front. Now, i replaced the spacers up front with bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks and it sits about a 1/4" higher than before (still not enough). I need to know what kind of coil springs to buy to lift my truck up to be level. I need about an 1" or 2" to get back to level. Help?????:confused:

    you can't go any taller than 3" up front with stock lower and upper arms... if the rear is sitting higher, the rear lift is too much...

    at 2.5 to 3 inch front lift, you want to do 1.5 to 1.75 inch lift in rear to level out...

    what did you put in the rear?

    Light bar and bumper guard, 3/16 steel skid plates for engine, tranny and transfer box, OME 881 springs with 5100 shocks at mid clip. AAL in rear. Positraction rear diff.
    I used a OME 881 spring. That will give you 1.5 inches of lift, I think, maybe 1.75 inches and then I went with the 5100 set at mid clip. If that doesn't level it I suggest using a smaller block in the rear.

    Thanks guys! That's actually not a bad price on those springs. I'll be giving them a call soon to level out my truck.
