eibach or OME coils

I have 5100s on a 2007 access cab. Currently set at 2.5 on stock coils and it rides pretty rough. I want to replace the coils and maintain my ride height while getting a softer ride. Which should i do, add the eibach coils on .85 or 885s on 0. If you have opinions or suggestions please share. THanks!

I voted. Please don't use that for consideration.. Like 99% here I haven't had the three setups you're discussing. Hopefully someone who has will chime in.

Good luck!

5100s & 885s


That's what I'm running and it's great on/off road.

I have the 5100s at .85 and eibach coils. It settled to be a little lower than my buddies 5100 with OR coils at 2.5

5100s @ 2.5 is probably going to be the same as 5100s & eibachs at .85, the eibach coils are pretty stiff.. I'd do 885s.

I just installed 5100s with Eibachs but I'm running the fully adjustable coil over style. I'm running that at about 2in and its a great ride. It hasn't had time to settle yet, but I'll adjust them when it does. More firm than my stock TRD Off Road set up but still far from harsh. I'm very happy with it so far. I've had several shops tell me that OME and 5100's shouldn't be mixed. Not sure why and many on here run and love that combination. I didn't want to mix them and I am glad I went with the setup that I did. My understanding is that the Eibachs purchased through Toytec were made by Eibach as a specific application designed specifically for the 5100. I like this matching.

I like everything about OME including the shocks, not against billy's but I have had with great success OME shocks on a 79 fj40, 97 4runner and now my '10 taco! always recommend them and I drive 90% on road but when off road they perform!

I already have the 5100s. I'm pretty much set on the 885s due to the pending plate bumper, plus then I just need the ome shocks if I do convert.

Thanks for all the input on here and the PMs!!!

I just put on some eibach at .85 and i love it. It feels like its only a tad stiffer then stock, which i like for city driving. I haven't had them off road much yet but from the little bit i did they felt nice.
