5100's and springs for a 1st Gen
Hey, I was thinking of doing coilovers on my 99 Tacoma for a while but I'm thinking I might just do 5100's all around for now and upgrade my leafs later. I want a decent ride cause I need to be able to convince the cute girls to ride in my truck when we go to the hot springs.

I can get the shocks localy from a shop around here but what springs would you guys recommend? It's an ex. cab, 4x4, 4 cyl, stock bumpers, pretty much no weight other than me, my gas, my fuel and a few tools and straps. What would be a nice cushy spring that I can set with minimum preload on the 5100's and get 2.5-3" of lift and good ride? CV wear I'm not concerned about since I have manual hubs and mostly do service roads in 2wd.

no plans for a front bumper (ie lots of weight up front)? OME 880's would work for you

Well just some tube bumpers, which won't be much heavier than stock at all. So the 880's will allow the 5100's to be set at 0 lift on the shock but still give me 2.5-3.0" of lift?
