    Thanks in advance for all the help. I've read through the various lift threads and had a lot of my questions answered but I'm still a little stymied.

    I have an '09 DC TRD Sport. And I have serious lift envy. I rarely go off-road. If I do it's mellow gravel roads. I'm looking to lift my truck 2.5-3 inches. Later I'll do tires/wheels. Any suggestions? Billsteins all around? ALS? I'm not a rich man but I also don't want to put cheap bullshit on my truck. Thanks again for humoring a new guy (and dumb American;)).

    Thanks for the quick response. Any ballpark estimates on cost of having that setup installed?

    Front 5100's = $182. 1.5" AAL = $50. DIY install = 8 hours. Professional install = shop around your area as prices vary by geographic location.
