    My tacoma ones are massive also - almost out of proportion.

    Hey guys! I have 6112's being delivered tomorrow, I am stoked! I had them assembled at 1.9" has anyone had experience adding CB shims to both sides? Positive or negative feedback would be appreciated.

    You are in for a treat! Mine feel even better now than when I first installed. No shims yet but that is what I would do if I wanted another.5 in.

    Not yet. My FJ got some lean after a while, but I just ignored it. As I sit today, it looks perfect.

    My 6112's are installed, unfortunately I'm waiting to get tires on. Mechanic forgot to put shim on driver side. I asked him for tape measure and measured center of wheel to top of fender wall. With the installation it took out most of the lean. Difference is less 1/4". :thumbsup:. No need for shim.:D.

    I have the 6112s set at top setting. 5160s for the rear. Coachbuilder shackles and extra shims if necessary. @Coachbuilder1 was an incredible resource and help when it came time to order the proper parts for running this setup at the top setting. Obviously I will post pics and feedback once everything is installed.

    I'm leaning hard toward this set up as well. Which size CB shackles did you get?

    Im working on it!
    Is there a reason you went with the CB shackles instead of the cheaper adjustable Toytec shackles?

    Call @Coachbuilder1 at 801-635-4872. His name Is David and he knows more about this setup than anyone out there. Talk to him about your application and what you plan to do with your truck and he will assist you with the best setup. Possibly shackles. Maybe an add a leaf. Maybe just shocks only. I was debating add a leafs in the rear until he dropped the real knowledge on me and went with the shackles setup instead.

    Well Guy's and Dolls, B-day as in Bilstein installation complete :amen:. Tundra needs a serious bath, but figured I would post a few pics specific to tire stick out and spacers.

    Set up is Bilstein 6112's set @ max up front and 5100's in the rear. 1" tapered block in rear. Spyder Trak Spacers 1 1/4" . There is no rubbing as far as I can tell:D . The stick out is exactly what I wanted. Tires are Nitro Ridge Grapplers 295/70/18. :bananadance::woot:
