Difference between SR5 suspension and TRD suspension

After reading the plethora of info that is available on the site I am left with one main question. What is the difference between the SR5 coils that are on my 09 regular cab prerunner and the TRD coils? The reason I ask is because I would like to emulate the TRD ride of my friend's tacoma. Should I just purchase the coils or is the better option. Any help would be appreciated. This is also my first post so let me know if I made any newbie mistakes.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

SR5 and TRD Sport use a non progressive rate spring, while the TRD Off Road uses a Progressive rate spring.

So should I just go to the dealership and order TRD off-road coils, or is there a better aftermarket choice?

If your going to buy new coils you might as well get some that give you a little lift. Heard good things about these:

If I already picked up some stock trd bilstein shocks, can I use them with eibach coil lift? Thanks for all the help.

Also remember the TRD Off Road has a smaller sway bar to go with the progressive coils, your PreRunner has the TRD Sport coils and sway bar (which is bigger). To avoid a mismatch in your suspension set up, you should just get the TRD shocks.

The Off Road, and SR5 have the same sway bar, but the TRD Sport has a larger diameter.

I am running the Eibach coils with stock TRD shocks. On road it is great, if you are going to do serious of road with large compressions then a 5100 would be a better shock. Myself, I only do service roads and the odd rough road so I don't feel the need to change out my TRD's. I do find the odd large bump it would be nice to have more dampening.

I have a 07 Prerruner double cab with SR5 package (no TRD). What size in mm is my swaybar?
