^He's right. My wife and I put them on my truck today set at 2.5", I was worried about the harsh ride, but it really is better than the stock TRD shocks by FAR. We did the rear 5100's as well with an AAL from Toytec
for TSB springs.
I'd say to go the 5100 route, well, because I went that route, and I'd look dumb saying go any other...
EDIT: Oh and the "TRD" springs you speak of will not lift your truck... FYI
