SamSter- I feel you man. That's why i started my own thread. I've heard good things about the 5100s but wanted to find out what the ride quality would be with the stock springs. Like you said, i've have my mind "made up" a few times but there is always doubt. This is my first truck and first time modding suspension so it's ALL new to me.
Like you said, i'd like to ride in somebodies truck with different suspension but if i do that, i'm sure i'll want to go for the ICON CO kit, HaHa.
Guys, i really appreciate the input. That's exactly what i needed to know. If the ride will be stiffer, i'm not sure i want to take that route. If i go with 4 5100's & OME springs, that will be around $550. I think i'd still need an AAL so add that too. Like many people have stated, if it's going to cost me around $650 or so, i might as well save up and get the ToyTec
Ultimate lift kit at around 1.1K and do it right the first time. But then i think, if i'm going to save up that much, might as well save up to get the ICON lift kit for around 1.4K with rear R. resovoir shocks. There are way too many options for someone like me. Damn this sucks!
I'm seriously stumped... I'm the type of person that prefers to pay up and get good quality rather than be cheap. only problem is i don't have 1k laying around. If someone with OME springs and 5100's in San Diego would let me ride with them, i'd love to see how it rides. If it rides good enough i would be willing to settle with that. I don't off road too often but i do have a Quad and go watch off road races a few times a year so i do like to go out to the desert.
I have 4 used BFG Mud terrain tires laying at home that i'm just dying to throw on my truck but they won't fit without a lift. The Baja 1000 is coming up in November so i want to hopefully have my lift and tires on by that time.
