    If I were to put the V6 front springs on my 4cyl, would they add any type of lift to the front?

    i think the best way to get lift up front is to get the 5100's and set them to whatever height youre going for

    I am asking because I have a set of the TRD Bilstein shocks and springs off of a TRD OR and wanted to see if I should just use my stock springs or the TRD Sport springs when I install the shocks.

    You could try the sport springs, see if you get some lift. No idea if toyota uses different spring rates between the v6 and 4-banger.

    Would I need an alignment if I installed the V6 springs?
