Need some smarts on suspension

Hello everyone, so I am wanting to slowly but surely go the way of mid travel for my 08 preRunner but have some questions. I have front spacers that WILL be coming off when I install new front coilovers and a have an aal on the rear that's may either do another aal or replace with a whole new leaf pack(opinions help). What I am wondering is is a set of resiviour coilovers really needed or just some regular king or camburg will do the job. Any feedback is much appreciated.....btw getting an ARB installed next week any thoughts on this too, thanks!

Get a set of lift spindles. They will greatly improve your ride quality b/c it removes all of the preload off your coil overs.

The benefits of reservoir CO's is the extra volume of shock oil will help keep the oil cool preventing cavitation of the oil, meaning the formation and then immediate implosion of cavities in a liquid when a liquid is subjected to rapid changes of pressure that cause the formation of cavities where the pressure is relatively low, i.e., rapid shock travel.

Do you need reservoir shocks, unless you plan on high speed off road desert runs, probably not, but they sure look cool.

Ok will take a look. Are spindles something I could do before coilovers.? What kinda lift will that give me?
