2.0 vs 2.5

Is there any on highway ride difference between 2.0 coilovers and 2.5 coilovers. I just bought a 09 double cab long bed which is my new "family" car just traded from an FJ. I'm looking for a smooth ride due to wife and baby but i still want something that will perform when i go out for light wheeling.

Thanks for the help.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

5100's are a great addition to your ride i had that setup all four corners, and people will do the aal no block. But in my opinion it doesnt compare to a true coilover the ride is so much smoother.

Ive never been in a truck with 5100's, but I have Sway a Ways on my truck with almost 50K on them and I think my truck rides better than stock.

I had those same axis wheels on my 03' tacoma, they look great, but I do not think they make them to fit the new tacos.

Terracrapplers are good tires but they have a short life span...Good choice w/ the BFG
