TRD Sport bilsteins, bumpy ride

So I was wondering, whats the expected life of the Bilsteins that come with Sport package??

I'm asking because my wife has been saying that the truck feels a lot bumpy, and I've noticed too and I'm wondering when its gonna be time to upgrade....

Now, when its time to upgrade what do you guys recommend me to get??, i was thinking about 5100's front and back, and maybe a lil lift

I already have 4 leaf pack on the back.... I am a dumb ass when it comes to suspension, and almost everything related to it

BTW, since its a prerunner, i don't plan any major off roading, only when necessary, at least for now.....

The 5100's ride much better then the stock trd.I had mine set at the 3rd setting..1.75". You've said maybe a little lift.The second setting is .85".With this there would be less pre-load on the spring then at 1.75".Meaning an even smother ride.

5100s will allow 4 height settings - stock, .85, 1.75 & 2.5. You can get the Toytec 1/4" top plate spacer to level front from left to right by using it on drvr side. Rear can be adjusted by using AAL or not depending on how much lft you go with up front. The rear 5100s are not adj & do not provide lift, just better valving.

Yeah, Being as you have the 4 leaf pack,the second (.85)setting would return you to the factory rake.The fourth (2.5)setting would put you about dead even.
