My short Bilstein 5100 review

Got 5100's installed on Wednesday.

Fronts set @ 1.75 and rears installed along with a 1" Toytec block. I have the 4 leaf pack in the rear.

These things ride amazing! Ride is way better than stock less of a sloppy feeling when cornering etc. feels more like it is supposed to in my mind... Setting the fronts at 1.75 using stock sport springs is a great ride anyone who thinks its to stiff needs a car. Height wise we shall see once I get my new wheels and tires mounted if I am 100% happy but I am pretty sure I will be. I only plan on 18X9's with 265/65/18 BFG AT's possibly 275's we will see how it all fits. I am not much of a wheeler so I think this setup will be all I need. Also zero vibes so far...

Bottom line.... if you are thinking of getting these....... Quit thinking and start ordering.......

I will post pics when everything is mounted probably mid April/May

Thanks Tacoma World for the help!!!

I'm leaning towards the exact same set up.

So here she is with the wheels and tires on.. Not a good picture of how it truly sits since the back has all 4 stock wheels and tires in it.. More pics to come when the sun comes out again.
