Pretty much what I have, however i used the readylift kit. only difference is that i didn't get the shocks with the kit and had to purchase them separately. Great pepes over there and pretty easy prices: http://store.fatbobsgarage.com/toyota-tacoma-2wd-5-lug-suspension-lift-kit--2005-2009-p7611.aspx

would the spacer plates affect my stock coils that have 250k miles on em. (i.e. sagging springs)

so which is better fatbob or readylift? or same ting

are the bilstein 5100 that much more better than 4600?

they are both top plate spacers, so they don't compress your springs to achieve the lift. So in that regard they are the same.

i could be wrong, but maybe he's referring to the bilstein heavy duty shocks that fit our 5 lugs. still though, you can't really compare them to the 5100s as they don't fit our trucks.

as far as the mileage you have, i have no idea whether or not the kit would affect anything. i think at that point, i would start looking into tradin that beast in!

I got the readylift in my truck and I dont like how it rides. I have heard that the fatbobs kit has longer add-a-leafs and rides better. If I had to do it again, I would get the fatbobs.

Edit: I see you live in VA also, if you live near me, you can take my truck for a spin to see if you like the way the readylift makes the truck ride.
