I haven't kept up on here lately, are those 2.5's? I have the towers in my garage just waiting for me to get shocks and bumps.

So I figure this is good as any place to ask this question regarding coil overs.

I'm looking to get the Sway a Way 2.0 coil overs, and wanted to know if anyone knew the spring rate. I believe its #650, but not positive. So my question is would this be an appropriate spring rate for my truck?

I have a Regalar Cab 2nd gen, so 4 banger, but is heavier than most due to Bruteforce Hybrid, and a set of Relentless skids along with BAMF sliders. Currently running the 5100s with stock coils at 1.75".

And one more question, I know it wouldn't qualify as mid travel, but I don't really want to replace the UCA's if necessary because of $$, so will I be alright running the Saw 2.0's as long as I'm not above about 2.5" of lift with stock UCA's?

I'm doing this in order to prepare to run 255/85/16's once I need new tires.

Thanks in advance.

Sway away has 650 stated on the website.
And yes, 650 should be good for the truck, and a little bit of armor

Yeah, they'll work fine without new UCA's.

And thats an intriguing offer, but I doubt I'll be down there for a while. Possibly during the holiday season but I'm not even sure of that. Thanks though.

Ok help me out guys. My tuck is a dd I want to improve on road and off road ride. My "offroading" consists of some trails and rough forest service roads. I don't intend to ever beat on the truck. But I'm sure I'll end up doing some higher speed desert stuff. And I'd like to go faster down un maintained roads to get to my fishing/hunting spots. For the front. Either icon or king ext travel and tc upper arms. Do I need resi? I doubt I'll ever run the suspension hard for more then 10mins or so. And maybe 30 minutes of mild un maintained roads I already have wheelers front bumps. For the rear I'm going to do Ride rite bags with daystar cups. I'm torn between 5160's. and icon 2.0 resi and non resi. Whatcha guys think? I can weld and fab. But don't want to on the taco. Opinions guys? Main questions are. Do I need remote resis? And how much better are the icon 2.0's then the billy 5160's? And do I need those resi?

No, but if you ever pouch your truck harder then you think they could come in handy, plus resi's pull bitches

Icon= faster is smoother, but something like a speed bump real slow will be stiff.
king/bilstein= slower is smoother to a point, but it's better for DD (IMO)

I agree with the ICON statement. Faster is my speed and is my DD.

You should research digressive (icon) vs progressive (king) valving.

Honestly, find local members with kings (or other co's with progressive valving) and find one with icons and ride with them, and see if you can drive a little and see which feels better.

How is it as a DD?
From what i know about valving it's slightly stiff, but it can't be worse than 5100's set at 2.5 on stock coils.

I have the extended travel remote resis with the click to adjust. I find it is great for me. Been able to adjust the settings for stiffer and plusher with the turn of a dial...
