    New '10 4x4 SR5 Tacoma owner here. Here's she is:

    [​IMG]

    Been doing some reading on this here great site and the first mod will be 5100s for the front. Will the shocks be the only thing I have to buy to just level the front with the back? Or is there another part I need?

    Also according to the Bilstein website, the part number I'm looking for is BE5-C475-H0. But on downsouthmotorsports the part number is listed as BE5-C477-T0. Which one is the one I want?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Welcome to TW! And Nice truck :) I remember when mine was stock like that it seems like forever ago! hahaha


    You should be fine just setting the 5100s at .85 I believe to just level the truck.

    I always thought the setting was 1.75 to level out the truck. and anything beyond that you would need new UCA's

    I still need to measure the fender height as it sits now. There's not much of a rake, but it's noticeable.

    Cool, that's where I bought the truck!

    Hmm I thought it was .85 but you're probably right, and eventually you'd need new UCA's. I've got 2.5" for mine, and I just don't have the money to get new UCA's yet but yes if you can afford them do it immediately.
