hey i recently did the 3'' toy tec lift with the bilsteins 5100's and i must say wow what a difference in ride with the shocks !!! i love them even only having them for a few days, the 3'' toy tec lift tho love the stance but its kinda cheap and the 1/2'' strut spacers barely even fit with the kit and the coil spacer barley fit, had to reuse the ubolt for the AAl which every thing sucked cause it was all rusted to **** b for the install , but all in all i love them together, like the height but now want higher !! 305 55 20's go on tomo !!! will post pics tomo !!!!


oh yea and the bestest thing i bought. . . . . . brand new trd headers off ebay for $430 !!!!
Exhaust Headers - 4.7L V8 PTR16-34000-10

anyone have these ??? i have read grrreat things about there quality here on some posts

i know waht you guys are saying , and before i bought all this i called toy tec and they said it was fine to do this and 4 wheel parts said the same as long as the 5100's are set to stock height ! which they are ! when i ordered my parts i even have a third party, my mechanic tell me its fine as long as im not doin any crazy s#@t with the truck

plus along this i also hav a 1.5 '' spacer to fit the 305's . . . .

ok so i am gonna get the 5100's adjusted correctly but will a shop do it for me ? a Goodyear or Monroe or even private mechanic ??? i dont have the skill or the proper tools to do it my self if i did i would definitely do it ! but can the 5100's b adjusted after there set ??? im not to sure even tho i cant see why it couldn't b done . . . . ugh mad at my self i was sooo hooked on being 3'' higher that i got greedy and wanted only that . . . reasoning why i did it this way but this is a learning process even tho an expensive one . . . . . ugh

If you have your 5100 at the lowest setting (bottom notch) with the 3" Toytec spacers you should be fine. You might want to look into the diff. drop if you're 4WD
thats what i was thinking peterfar, i mean im running them as stock recplacements , but that again there allowed to b lifted so i unde stand y the others r saying why have the coil spacer, i also hav the diff drop too with 1.5'' aal so no worries there . . . still had to trim a bit for the 305's will post pics when clean , im wanting to realy 2 do a 3'' body !!


yea ,yea ,yea , i know i know but its not that bad to go off and use that type of analogy !! you live you learn when lifting !! i can see if i stacked both and was fighting on the matter that i don't have anything to worry about and wont hav any problem what so ever !! but that's not the case and for getting mudders then cuttin the lugs cause u needed radials wtf that just stupid , u should of gotten an aggressive all terrain either pro comps ,coopers, nittos, ss-m16's etc . . ! haha

[QUOTE+]As was posted earlier, a coil spacer on top of the adjustable Bilstein 5100s is a bass-ackwards install. It's like buying mudders but cutting the lugs off because you really needed street tires. Just doesn't make a whole lotta sense.[/QUOTE]
