    Ok, just got back from LaLa land with new rear diff. , lo & behold, looks like the UPS truck was here with some more goodies... Not a great pic but there's 2 cv axles,2 LBJ's 2 axle/wheel bearings (Timkin) & 2 ABS tone rings, guess I'll throw this shit on & see what sticks haha... No Eibachs tho' apparently they're out from a phone call recieved...

    Ok, I recently (like 2 days ago) swapped out my stock 1st gen progressive coil springs for a set of 2nd gen coils off a 2015 Tacoma.

    I was looking to gain an inch in front to level out my truck & I got 1.5" of lift , throwing my stock uca's out of range for alignment, so I reset the clip on my 5100's to the middle setting & pretty much hit the mark...

    Thanks guys , kinda slow in MODS but it'll pick up , I DO need sliders & another tube bumper so I'll do a mock up first, get dimensions, get to a bender, fire up the mig & start slapping tubes together & see what sticks...

    EDIT: I'm still about 3/8t" from level but I'll live with it for now....

    Did my own alignment & pretty happy about the outcome , ride is def smoother than the preloaded progressive...

    Disconnected my sway bar as well, as usual takes a little bit to get used to the truck moving free'r

    than before, no sway bar = more articulation...
