I added Bilstein's to my Christmas wish list, with Sonny's address. Hopefully Santa will bring them to me, otherwise I need to buy them myself. Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction.

if talking the adjustable 5100s, i hope folks are not giving you the impression you can combine them with a toytec 3" preload coil spacer lift?

Bilsteins are the way to go! The ride quality is one of the best out there.

bilstein HD stock replacements work great with nonTRD coils and preload spacer lift... still pretty stiff, but better ride than TRD coils and other shocks...
