Sorry, I tried searching to compare the 2 and it's gotten to the point where everythings just blending together and making me more confused.
I have a 2009 Tacoma DC TRD. I had the rear suspension TSB done about 2 weeks ago. I want to level out the front and leave the rear as is. Eventually I want to run 265/75/16 but I don't see this happening for awhile.
I thought I was set on getting the 5100's for the front and keeping the rear shocks stock. I had not decided between 1.75 or 2.5.
I went to a local shop today and asked about the 5100's and was told that they really haven't done any with the 5100. The salesperson told me they do a lot of the Readylift level kits and quoted me a price for parts/install/alignment. **note** I went in to see what ballpark I was looking at. This shop is known to be expensive, but I was just curious to see what they said.
Here's my dilemma............
I figured Bilstein 5100 for the front would run me about $189+$200 or so for install and alignment for a total somewhere around $450-500 (if I am correct)
The shop quoted my the Readylift for $250+200 install+70alignment for total somewhere around $520+.
It got me thinking that the 2 options were fairly close in price. I'm basically want a small lift for looks. I drive a ton of highway miles everyday (114 miles/day) and don't want to compromise the nice ride I have now. I seldom tow and only take it off-road to feed my cows in the pasture (I live on a hundred acres and far from being rough terrain)
Given the two options, what would you choose. Better quality? Better ride? Vibrations? About the same? Pros/cons of each?
My initial thoughts are the 5100's. If I recall, there are some that are not found of spacers? Why is this?
I am open to other options as well. I am trying to stay close to this proce range. Once again sorry...I tried putting off this post by searching and searching, but I just got to a point where I just said what the heck!! Thanks
