Question which one would be a better ride?

what would be a smoother ride? bilstein 5100s set at .85 with ome 885 coils or just the bilsteins set at 2.5 with stock coils? the total height with the ome coils and bilsteins is 2.6 inches of lift, and 2.5 with the bilsteins and stock coils. i just wanna know what would be a better ride...thanks for any help. oh and i have the 1.5 icon leaf pack for the rear if that matters.

The stock coils won't handle the pre set 5100s well! Def add the coils either eibach or OME!

Toytec already has a pre assembled eibach/5100 for $549. It will make install easier!

You'll need to get the top plate from your stock set up so a spring compressor will be necessary. Then you'll need to assemble them with the spring compressor as well. Those things can be sketchy! Most guys run a 1/4" top plate on the drivers side for the lean! But toytec's already taken care of that. You could always sell the ones you have and still be good?? Just an idea!

885s with 5100s at .85 is not recommended.

youd be better off with 885s on ome shocks

eibach gives 1.6" and then .9 from the 5100s so 2.5" some report a bit higher when new

Yes. 1.6" from the coils themselves and .85 from the 5100's. Yoytoda is correct.
