    So, I have Bilstein 5100's set at 1.75" up front, and the Rear Leaf TSB done for the back. I love how it rides and I liked how lifted it looked, but I just got the N-Fab nerf steps, and I want to lift the truck some more now. Like a 3" lift, I don't wanna cause any problems. It's my daily driver and I don't want to lose any ride quality, I want it to be good on and off road(though I don't wheel much, but when I do I'd want it to do fine). So what can I do to lift it some more? Can I just get some front coils, and another rear leaf for each side? What will that do and how high will the total lift be? Should I get OME or Eibach coils?

    Thanks for any help

    Ugh..I could set the billies to .85 when I do the install, how would that ride with the eibachs? And how much of a lift for the front would that give me? I don't have rear 5100's, just stock TRD sport bilsteins. What AAL would I need to level it with the front after the eibachs?

    Well why don't I set the 5100's back to 0 then do Eibachs? Is that different or better than having it at .85? And will I need new rear shocks or u bolts if I get an AAL?

    I recommend getting the 1/4 top plate spacers, or 3/4 is our a DC. it will make it sit more level. I didn't get it and my rear is sitting a little higher than front. The Eibach is a very good spring, i believe they are rated at 640LBS compared to the Stock one which is 300-400LBS not exactly sure. (spoke to relentless and he said his OME 885 started to sag, thats why he stacked his with a spacer) Just an FYI

    Okay, and then can I just get the 1.5" rear AAL from toytec for the tsb pack and be good to go? And rear 5100's maybe..

    i feel confident you need rear shocks, because every lift comes with them, from cheap to inexpensive. U-bolts have to be replaced if you have TSB, because there aren't many thread left on stock TSB leafs, not sure on regular leaf though

    also, with Eibach and 5100 at .85, no need for UCA. however, if you went any higher, i would suspect you will need them. Im thinking hard about turning my 5100's up to 1.75 and stacking with Eibach, from what i have read and searched, no one has done it. but, i will def need UCA's first. I will have a similar set up to Relentless, but he will have OME and mine will be Eibach. but, ill be sitting around 3.25 - 3.30 somewhere in there.

    The old 885's sagged , the new ones are 885X , they aren't supposed to sag .

    I will definitely do it. it will be a little while, tried turning them up last night, but the dang Upper ball joint would come apart from spindle, and i got pissed off and put it back together. It will be a few weeks, ill definitely have a thread about it and hopefully answer many many questions about this setup.
