    what do you guys think of 1. bilstein 5100s, 2. toytec front coil springs, 3. 2.5" coil spring spacers, 4. 2.5 rear leafsprings, 5. 1.5in rear block...also some other little things like swaybar ends and stuff...im just not sure i can use the coil springs and the spacers with the shocks....any input would help.
    thanks.

    A. Yes
    B. Yes

    This setup won't work in the front. If for some reason it did it would be a HORRIBLE ride and cause all kinds of problems: won't ever be able to align properly, wear out CVs super fast, etc. 3" is easy, after that you'll need alot more $$$tuff.

    Setup will work n the rear tho. You can go as high as you want in the back but you'll have to get a custom driveline after 4" probably.

    Look into long travel kits for the 4", or go for a drop-bracket 6"

    You can do a mild 3" suspension lift with a 1" BL. Other then that...DB kit like FT or PC.
