    Since I pulled my sway bar due to bed bounce guys have said a better suspension may help and I’m willing to try. I’ve had 5100 series height adjustable on my Taco and 4 runner without issue.

    Are a lot of guys on here running them without issue? I don’t want to do anything but help the ride and level the truck.
    Will I need a diff drop or anything else?
    I’ve also heard a few horror stories about the clip slippping but I dont know how common that really is.
    Thanks in advance and if that has already been beaten to death and I should have searched I apologize!

    I've been running 5100s on the top setting for a year now and have done a bit of offroading and a few trail runs and havent had any issues with them thus far. (knock on wood). I dont have the diff drop was told it wasnt needed.

    Thanks! Are you running the same UCAs and did your truck have any issues getting into alignment?
