    Which setup is best? Bilstein 5100s all around with front at 2.5 with a rear aal, or 5100s in front with eibach coils and a rear aal? Which looks best, rides best, or anything. Thanks

    The best setup would be the 5100s set at 0 with eibach coils up front and the AAL and 5100s in the rear. The eibach coils will most likely give you a little over 3" of lift until they settle and may cause your cv boots to need to be replaced.

    Replacing the springs is usually the best option. Speaking of which, how far "gone" are your rear leafs? In many cases, an AAL only delays the inevitible leaf pack replacement. If yours are bad enough, the cheaper long-term solution MAY be to do that instead of an AAL.

    It's easier to replace the whole axle than the actual boot, but the boots aren't that expensive. Reman axles from Toyota are like $175 and reman axles from autozone are a little over $50 with a lifetime warranty so if you break an axle or rip a boot again you can get another one for free. I went the autozone reman axle route.
