OME front shocks are 289.00, and 5100's are 100 each.. I can afford it, I will wait till my Factory Tires are worn out though. Did you do the work yourself? I have done Shocks, struts, etc.. on BMW's.. but not Tacomas, I can't Imagine it being "more" difficult than a 7 series with push button adjustable shocks. Any special Tools required?
So, it really does ride and drive good? Road Noise?
Im really happy with the ride. Its a little firmer than stock, but any lift is. I have no experience with the 5100 shocks being used with the OME springs, but some people have used them and have been happy. I guess its a call on your part.
I did my install. Only special tools you will need are a spring compressor (A good wall mount is prefered, as the OME springs are strong! Or have a shop install them on the strut) and some "C" clamps for the rear AAL install. My AAL is a 1" long that I had custom made at a spring shop. A 2" may give a little more lift than you want, but, once again, thats your call.
OH, You will need new center pins for the rear spring pack, as the factory ones dont have much room for an AAL. If you have a hard time getting these, let me know, and I'll see what I can do for ya.
