    Ok, I have the ARB, Milemarker Hydraulic 9500, and the truck sits 1-3/4" lower in the front measured from tire to fender after install. I want the truck level and I don't want a spacer because the truck bottoms out if you hit a bad bump. Spacer won't fix that. I want as close to factory ride as possible (I'm 40yrs old). So what will fix the problem under $1500 ? Coilover, New springs and shocks (What Kind?) Bilstein 5100's ?

    Has anyone already went through this?

    Truck is: 2004 Xcab 4cyl 4x4 ARE Campertop

    BTW, I only wanna do this once. It may sag more later, who knows !

    What all has to be modified to run King Coilovers ?

    Forgot to mention something......The Hydraulic Milemarker did make ps pump noise just after install but after 1 week and keeping a check on the fluid level, The noise seems to be fading away. It may be air in the system that gives everyone trouble. Would I get Milemarker again ? You Bet !!!

    Cheap route would be front adjustable Bilstein's 5100 to level truck. Coilovers offer a great ride but definitely more pricey. Check out Toytec's website for info. I have Toytecs 2.5in coilovers with rear 1.5 in blocks/rear bilsteins and the ride is actually better than stock, very smooth..

    Thanks for the reply, I plan on keeping the truck for many years to come so even $2000 would not bother me. So what all does it take to change to the toytecs ? Do you have to change alot of steering components to get it to line up ? Is there a suspension everyone is after but they can't afford it ? I wanna go best I can for the price paid. I don't wanna waste money but don't mind spending the money to make it right.

    So are the coilovers not better ? Was thinkin of going ome 882 and shocks but it looked like many folks on here wanted the coilovers King, Donahoe, Saw, ect.

    The leaning ome's has me rethinking that decision.

    Call in the pro's
