New coils, struts, and AAL's

So I just dropped my truck off to have trd bilstein struts, OME 884x coils, and fab tech AAL's put on. Finally getting rid of the rear blocks, and front spacers. What do you guys think? Will it ride better than the base struts, spacers and blocks? Anything I should/shouldn't do? Let me know! Next on my list is a set of UCA's..

Uh don't know if it is going to come out how you want. Those shocks aren't for lifted vehicles

It was either those or the base model shocks... I think they will be better than the base shocks base coils and spacers

I know they are the softest coils of the three (884x 885x 886x) but will still give me 2.5 inches of lift and hopefully be better than my spacers were (they sucked)

Shortest, but not softest.

i would call whoever you purchased the coils from and confirm that they are compatible with the shocks.

If nothing else call the boys over at DSM (listed in the vendor section) and pick their brains a bit.

The TRD shocks will be better than the base Tokiko shocks for sure, just nto as good as something like the 5100 series. I've actually heard of some poeple running Eibachs on TRD shocks so it's been done. They'll wear out a bit quicker but they will do alright.

Stock is 540#/in I believe, the 884's are around 580 #/in and taller than stock.

If there are no compatibility issues with the coil seating on the shock, it will work

(I believe the OME's will seat on the TRD Shocks, I have no reason to believe they wouldn't but I'm not 100% certain of it since I have not done it personally)

Shocks, not struts.


And I echo what others said. The trd shocks are not properly valved to dampen the stiffer springs. The ride will suffer.

Can't be as bad as spacers on base model shocks/springs

Well I guess if I blow these shocks I will have an excuse to tell my gf I need nitro chargers or 5100s. They are on and it rides a fuck of a lot better than it did, got rid of some of the rake, was worth the 200 bucks it cost to get everything put on. Will post pics here in a minute.
