Did I $#@! up??










I put bilsteins 5100's on OME 885's am I going to damage my suspension components like it says below from the "Things u need to know about lifting your truck"



Bilstien 5100's This is a great affordable lift kit. These replacement shocks are great to add a few inches to the front of your Tacoma, it is adjustable and have a slightly better valving system than the stock shocks that come with the Tacoma's. (But please take note NO One recommends it to be used in conjunction with after market coils) This may result in damage of your suspension components.

They have to be set at stock height if you plan to use them with the OME coils.

I am currently the setup with OME heavies and the Bilstein 5100's. I have the Bily's set at 0" and of the course the Springs give me about 3" extra. I drove to Toytec Lifts, about 30-45 min. from home luckily, and picked up the suspension setup personally and talked over my choices about front struts since the ones I wanted were not in, so after discussing it for a little these were the ones they recommended.

Had been on since May and currently no issues.
