    What do you guys think?? I recently purchased the eibach 1.6 coils and i was also wondering about the different adjustments on the 5100s is it 0 .85 and 1.65?

    I'm at 2.5" on my billy's and still have them within reasonable specs as far as alignment. If I decide to go higher, I will without a doubt need the UCA's.

    I did a TON of research on this topic a few weeks ago before I purchased the Eibachs. It's not recommended that you go above the .85 setting with the Eibach's on the 5100's. You will get right at 2.5" with this setup. I wouldn't chance anything higher.

    Hmmm, so any suggestions guys? I feel like the front won't be high enough @ 2.5, i want it to be slightly higher in the front then it is in the back, I got my aal from toyota a month ago so i don't think they're even close to settling its ridiculously high in the back :X

    Not to hijack, but I have my 5100's set @ 1.75 due to alignment fears - but didn't try the 5100'2 @ 2.5".

    How many individuals have actually had problems @ 2.5" of lift?

    I originally had my Bilsteins set at 2.5" with no problems but I could tell the wheels wouldn't align right. When I looked at the front of the truck the angle of the wheels was noticable like this though not as extreme: \ /

    I think it would be much worse at 3".

    hmmm so any recommendations as to what to do WITH THESE COMPONENTS (the 5100s and coils) to get around 3" of lift?? This is just a temporary lift until i have the funds for something nicer so no recommendations of spindles/coils/etc lol just with these billies and coils!

    Pretty much stock
    TECHNICALLY.....if anyone has a 2nd gen tacoma without a UCA then they have a serious problem on their hands. I'll assume that you mean us without aftermarket Uca's :)


    i have a 3in procomp with stock uca's....dealership was able to get truck within oem spec's. I'll get uca's eventually.
