So, got the rear TSB done today (gained 1.5" if anyone's interested) and the dealership replaced all four shocks and the rear springs even though I have a TRD Sport and they were only supposed to do the rear springs. I was planning on using the rear TSB as the starting point of my 3" lift but now my complete suspension (except the front springs) is brand new. I'm doing the 3" strictly for looks as I do very limited off-roading. Now I'm faced with options that I didn't anticipate.
Option 1: Just put more aggressive tires on that will fit with the stock suspension and call it good until they need replacing and then go with the 285/70-17s I want to ultimately go with along with the 3" lift
Option 2: Screw it...rip the brand new shocks off and install the 3" OME lift and sell the shocks to someone without a TRD package. Then I buy and run the 285/70-17s I want.
Wondering what I could get for the new Billy shocks? Staying with my "new" stock suspension, I don't have to deal with the shakes/shimmies/what-ever-else I'm gonna create by lifting. It was like driving a new truck home from the dealership...damn it...now I don't know what to do!
I know it's ultimately up to me but am wondering what your thoughts are???
