2003 tacoma old emu/5100's experiences

I would like to hear from people who ran both lift setups
Option1. Adj5100's up front with eiabach coils and rear dakars
Option2 old man emu full kitt 881s nitro charger shocks all around and rear dakars.

Truck is daily driver,also going to put a heavy arb or similar bumper so unsure if I go with old man setup will I get less lift once installed,wher I could always adj 5100's to compensate. And yes searched quite a bit.

Just get a stiffer OME spring. I ran the nitro charger in the front on my last 4runner and they held my arb just fine. I ordered them for my runner I have not too. It's a good set up. I also ran 5100's at 1.75 and eibach springs in the front on my 07 Tacoma and liked it as well.

It's really up to you. I'm in the process of a new build and I did for the fronts. But I'm doing OME springs in the rear with billy 5125's for the shock, and OME Front shocks and sprigs. But I have a runner so it's a different lift.

x3, and I remain very happy with the combo.

Using 5100s to pre-load your springs will provide a somewhat harsher ride than replacing the springs themselves. You'll also want to do your homework before pre-loading OME coils. (While it can be done, it's not generally recommended.)

if you are going to put a heavy bumper up front. dothe OME 882 with OME shocks. 5100 are not made for weight lifting. I have the OME setup with the added weight of almost 200#s with bumper and winch. no issues to date. very happy with the setup.

881s with an ARB style bumper will essentially give you stock ride height in the front after they settle. If you are putting up the extra weight of a plate bumper the 882s are the way to go.
The 881s+plate bumper and some Dakars will give you a serious rake. Even the 881s with stock bumper and Dakar leafs will be a pretty big rake.
There are also tons of people on here running 5100s with ome without issue.

I had the stiff OME coils, Nitrocharger shocks a heavy ass arb and a smitty built winch on my last 2000 runner and it had 34 inch tires on it. It held the bumper fine, but it sounds like you already made your mind up so Ill stop trying to sway ya. Good luck.

Maybe on the first day with a stock bumper. They are only rated for a 1.75-2" to begin with. After settling and an extra few pounds of plate bumper they you be left with much lift.

I used to run stock coils with the 5100's set at 2.5" of lift. With this setup I thought the ride was very nice. Now with ome 881 and nitrocharger shocks the ride is very stiff. Also FYI I got 2.5" of lift with the 881 coils.
