    I was wondering how much of a lift I will get with 1st gen tundra coils on my bilstein 5100'S set to 0. And some pictures of this setup would be nice too.
    Thanks

    You'd get about 2" up front. I had them with some Tundra 5100's on the second notch (Tundra 5100's have 5 settings) and it was a great ride. A bit more body roll than I liked, but I was happy with them. Only got rid of them to get some coilovers.

    I ran them with Tundra 5100s. Not worth the hassle of finding the proper coils in my opinion. The ride was stiffer than I expected from them and you have to preload them to get over 2". I had them on the middle notch to get 3".

    I agree with this statement. If you can find them easily, cheap and are looking for 2" of lift, then go for it, but if you are looking for a 3" lift then go with the Toytec Eibach coils.

    If your coils aren't too sacked you'd probably be close to 2" , I'm running 2nd gen OME 883#'s on 1st gen Tundra 5100's set at zero, gave me 3"

    & if your on stock leafs , can promise you'll be a little bro'd

    Hi I was wondering what the part number for the TUNDRA adjustable bilsteins that will fit on a 1999 TACOMA 4x4. I want to be able to get 3" out of the front and get the eibach coils that have the correct spring constant match for these 5100s


    I found some that had the 5 settings like you guys said but I just wanted to be sure before I order them!

    heres the ones on Amazon:
