My wife and I both agree that it rides better than the stock TRD springs, but firmer and more truck-like. I got the 45+ vibes, only half of the time which is rather comical. All in all though, VERY happy with the end result.

Yeah Natalie (my wife) and I both went to the hobby shop to knock everything out. She came through like I never thought possible! I was so proud of her! I'd finally get a bolt through something in the front with her help, then as I'd go to tighten it up, she'd go to the rear and start chopping off the excess center pin bolts with a dremel all on her own. She learned a lot and now has a better appreciation for the truck too.

I had to come back the next morning to do the front diff drop because we worked until close the previous day getting in all the rest of the lift but it was no biggy. Front diff drop was a piece of cake.

Nice truck and sweet TRD Norcal decals. I imagine that's where you're originally from? BTW how's the rig ride with Bilies set that high on stock springs? Just trying to get an idea compared to stock.
