Okay... so. As some of you may remember, I want to go on this 3k mile trip with my brother and our motorcycles in the bed. total weight of motorcycles is probably 850lbs, plus me, my brother our luggage etc. I've already determined through my other thread that my leafs need replacing. I brought the Taco to a local toyota dealership to look at the shocks, struts and coils. Although they weren't as knowledgable as I had hoped, the tech pointed out that my front OEM billies and coils look fine but the rear two are leaking slightly and he suggested new shocks. Hopefully he's right about the front struts/coils being up to the task.
So this is what I'm thinking, since im on a budget but i want to keep my options open. Would it make sense to get the wheelers 4-leaf pack and billistein rear 5100s set to stock height, and then later in the year when I have more money, can i get the 5th leaf added and get billistein struts with 881s??
Will the 4-leaf pack and rear 5100s be enough to handle the trip i want to take? I guess i could add timbrens too but they're pricey. Does anyone know if the 5100s are still back ordered?
Thanks in advance. I want to hit the road by next weekend so i need to know what im doing asap so i can order the stuff and have it installed intime.
