I belive Toytec is selling old OME stock....They should be warrantied, and they should swap them out. Tell them they sagged 2" and to replace them.

One word- Eibach

Made in USA and great customer support.



Watch out with the OME shocks as well. OK if you live where there is no snow/salt, but I have seen them totally rust out (no more yellow) and look like an old dog turd in 2 winters up here. Obviously not an issue where they are MFG either.

5100's all the way when it comes to shocks.

Is there something wrong about Toytech's OME coils? I picked up a pair of 885's for my '06. I have not noticed any kind of sagging yet, its been about 2 years.

My belife is that they are carrying old OME stock, which is why some people have pre mature sagging. I have had my 885's for 2 years + with no sagging, but I got mine from Wheelers.

Just an FYI

It's OK to use a coil spacer with stock coils. But - don't use a spacer with lift coils. The amount of pressure is too great and you could break the coil seat on the strut.

Once you go with the 5100 and then ride in a truck with spacers, you can tell a difference. The coil spacer feels bouncier. the 5100 feel more smooth. Or go for the gold and get some Icons. Day and Night compare to the 5100
