    the spring you wont need if your going with that coilover kit. and the rear shocks you'll need but also an add a leaf or blocks.

    hope this helps

    if you want the lean you wont need anything. im not a fan of the "bro" lean but its your choice. an AAL would be better and a new leaf pack is the best option but not chaep. i think an aal is under $100.

    will the shocks in the back help the ride? cause i plan to do some off roading but not to much, just coil overs that can take braking bumps but im not going over 4' whoops or anything crazy, just pot holes and bumps

    No, shocks do not add lift. An add a leaf/blocks/shackles are needed to lift the rear. You need new extended length shocks when you lift the rear.

    Yep, if you're not going to lift the rear aftermarket stock length shocks will work

    If I get longer shocks do I have to cut the bed and run it through?

    You won't have to cut through the bed to run longer shocks unless you go with some sort of long travel setup.

    A lot of people run the bilstein 5100s and really like them. I'm running the 5100s with my new leaf pack and I really like them. You should try calling the guys at Toytec or Down South Motorsports and talk to them about what shocks to run in the rear so you can get the right length shocks.

    Actually these will work. It says it works with 0-3" of lift so if you decide to lift the rear in the future these shocks will work too.

    Sounds good. I ordered my lift from them and they had great customer service, I'll definitely buy from them again :thumbsup:

    Your on the right track bud...those adjustable coil overs and 5100s would be great up front and then a 1.5" AAL for the rear and some rear 5100s as well...remember that if you go higher than 2.5", new UCAs are recommended for alignment purposes

    Yeah I'm staying at 2.5 cause of that reason, but once I get money I'll get the UCAs, this helps a lot
