    Grillcraft, Rear leaf TSB, 5100's at .85, with Eibachs, 265/70/17 BF Goodrich AT/S Tires, Hella 500's behind Grill, Kenwood KDC X995 H/U all Boston Acoustic speakers, JL Audio subs, Kenwood XR5 S amp, ATX Chrome 17x8 wheels
    So I just received my 5100's and bushings. I want the most out of the front I can get without any issues. I was thinking the Eibachs in front with the 5100's and top spacer on the driver's side. Do i need the diff drop with this set up? Or not? I have the TSB in the back, so I figure the Toytec 1.5 AAL in the rear. Like I said i want the best set up with less problems. I know you get 2.5 or more up front with the 5100's and Eibachs. But don't want any c.v. angle problems or alignment issues/ Thanks for anyone's time on this.

    Just run the 5100s. They will give 2.5" of lift. If you want a full 3" then use a 10mm kit with them, and just re-use your factory coils.

    I have the TSB already. So 1.75 as many people say will level it out. If I put a 1.5 AAL in the back it will have that ugly rake again. That is why I asked if it was better to put them at .85 with the Eibach's, and then the 1.5 AAL in the back. You get more front lift this way I believe without the alignment issues if I am correct from reading posts on here

    Any 2.5- 3" suspension lift is going to cause the caster in the alignment to be low, no matter what combination of parts you use. However, lifts that are all top-spacer do tend to cause ball-joint problems as well.
