    So Im looking to lift my truck, im putting procomp 7089's on soon and have 265/70/17 tires. I was searching around for what is the best route for a front lift, I see a lot of people with the toytec and was considering that route. In your opinions what is the best route for a front lift?

    Bilstein 5100's with eibach coils is a very popular lift, also I have read many positive comments on the OME setup. It depends how much lift your looking to achieve. If u just want to level it out the bilsteins are adjustable and can be set to achieve the leveled look with stock coils

    Questions #1 and #2 that you need to ask yourself when looking at any sort of lift...

    #1: What do you intend to use the truck for?

    #2 What is your budget?

    1. Mainly for work, but I like to occasionally (like once or twice a month) do some for wheeling with my buddies, all of their trucks have LT, I dont want to go that far.

    2. About 1,500 $


    Im looking for a little lift in the front, I like the rear at stock height.

    Then your best bet is getting some 5100's and setting them at 1.75, from what I have heard this levels the truck

    I am also interested in adding 5100's/stock coils to the front to level it with the rear that has the three leaf pack. I took a jack out to my truck and lifted it to both .85" and 1.75". To me it seems the bottom of the cab is level at .85", even though the tire to fender gap was not equal. At 1.75 " there was a nose high, exaggerated by the slope of the bed and bottom of the cab, but tire to fender was close to the same. Thats looking at it with 245/75R16 tires. Also assuming u get the lift they say at each level?

    I remember reading that 1.75 with stock coils levels the truck, however this may be with the tsb leaf pack. I personally have eibch coils on my 5100's so I dont know that would be the perfect match for a level height. But you raise a good point, I cant imagine a double cab getting the same amount of lift as a regular cab. The beauty of the 5100's is you can always adjust them if your not satisfied
