    Hey guys so i finally did it. IT was well worth it. The Bilstein %100 lift is more than worth the money. Please check it out and let me know what you think.

    yeah i did. I used bilsteins all around. The extended rear shock with the 1.5 inch leveling block. Well worth it. LOOK AT Bilstein 5100 Front and Rear Shocks from Wheeler's Off-Road, Inc

    youngtacoma06, What is the BP on your wheels? I just ordered a set of Pro Comp 17x9 with 4.75 BP with a 285-70-17 BFG and read in another forum that the wheels will rub the the brake caliper and may require more lift. What do you think?

    thanks guys for the rims i was going to go with the pro comp tires but i was not able to get the 16X8 in them, they would rub. The procomp 17X9 fit there needs to be a little cutting in them but it will work out. Post some pixs when your done

    Just to clarify, what size wheels and tires were you able to go with with the 5100s? I'm looking at lift options, but I want to run 16x8s with 285-75-16s. Your truck looks really good!

    No it will touch the mud. Whats the point of having a truck if it doesnt get dirty.

    youngtacoma06, the tuck looks sweet. I just wanted to comment on wheel fitment.

    Your 17x9's should fit. I have 17x8's with 4.8" of backspacing with 295/70-17 tires. They won't rub the brake caliper but mine (and yours) will rub the upper control arm at full steering lock, which I avoid anyway. The magic number for backspacing is supposed to be 4.5" (on 16" or 17" wheels) to avoid the upper control arm. I don't find it to be a huge problem so I haven't put on 1" wheel adaptors or popped $550 for Total Chaos upper control arms yet. The Total Chaos upper control arms will also allow you a bit more caster hich can help with the wandering at freeway speeds that is often associated with lifting and larger tires.

    I am running the Toytec/OME 3" with OME 885 coils and Alcan add a leafs. I will be adding the OME shocks very soon, which are valved to work with the lift to soften the ride a bit. They are also longer so the shocks aren't over extended (which is very easy to do with the stock Bilsteins). Here are a couple of pics. You can click on the link in my sig to see more.

    Ok, I got the 5100s and need some help on putting them in. I read that you need to remove the lower control arm, but when I looked at your pics you removed the upper? I have the sway off and the lower off at this point and will finish in the morning. Also, the strut compressor says to compress 180 deg from each other but they do not fit! What strut compressor did you use?

    Can I buy the front and rear shocks you have, get them installed and not need the spacers and still get some lift?

    I don't off road, highway more than anything, just like the looks but also don't want to sacrifice riding comfort.

    Sorry if I sound dumb, but I am .
