OME N182 or Billy 5100 shock for rear???

Guys,

I'm stuck between the two really...I already have the 5100s up front set to 2.5 and a Toytec TSB AAL in the rear with factory Billys.

I'm in the market for rear shocks and want to know what I should go with?? I've researched galore, searching through as many threads possible with the information, but I'm torn.

Mind you this truck is driven mostly street, but will likely see some light Off-roading in the near future. It's a Prerunner so no rock crawling or anything

What would you recommend and why?

Would the OME set-up feel more comfortable compared to the 5100 rear shock?

Kind Regards,
Ryan

Chris, I know you're going to chime in...lol can you post that video up with your truck hitting some bumps? I keep hearing about this video, but can't find it anywhere...

Personally, I would get the 5100's since your fronts are 5100's and I like the matching.


If I had OME up front, I would get OME in the rear.

I'm the same way, plus since you said it is mostly street driven I would go with whatever option is cheaper!

Get the OME. But if you want to match your fronts/rears thats your call.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I have found the OME's ride a little better than the 5100's. They dont seem to heat up as fast off road, either.

OME it is!

I'll likely upgrade the front at a later time.

Kind Regards,
Ryan

^if you are planning to upgrade, I would go with the OME. If not, have them all match and get the 5100's.

I can't speak from experience but I doubt you will notice a difference.
