    07 4x4 TRD Off Road, 17" MM 955's, etc.
    Bilstein 5100 front shocks, Clarion VX409 DVD/ipod head unit, aFe air filter, Grillcraft MX grille, color matched grille surround.
    I am wanting to put 285 Nitto's on my Taco, but I have a couple of questions.

    1. What is the minimum lift required? 2.5" is what others have said.

    2. What are the required components? I want to go the Bilstein 5100 route. Do I need to replace all of the shocks or just the front ones? If I already had the TSB replacement done, do I still need to do the AAL?

    Here is a link to the wheels and tires I will be buying(they are on the red Tacoma. It has a 3" Toytec lift). http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/new-members/38076-new-other-forums.html

    Here is a link to my Tacoma as I bought it. Not a big fan of the Enkei 20" WT4's(they look good, but they are a little to "street" for me).

    Sorry that I am so ignorant, I have only had a Taco for a few weeks! I love it though!

    Those links must change:confused:

    Type in 5100's and check the titles only box. Also type in lifts and check the same box. There is a shit pile of info.
