    I've installed my bilstien shocks on all 4's with TSB done and now I'm getting this wobble on my truck. Is anyone having the same issue?

    The shocks are better than the stock oem shock for ride comfort but can feel the roads more than before. Seems like I can feel every bumps and cracks on the roads. Also when I hit a bump or cracks the car seems to drift and sway. I've took it to Toyota and they did point out that the car does sway and wobble and says that something seems bent in my suspension. Anything can help to resolve this issue.

    Would changing my spring make a difference in the situation? and also with a heavy load the car drives fine.

    Well I guess I'm going for some new springs, any idea on the best one to get? I got the front on .85 on the bilstiens and would like to keep it that way, any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Toytec/Eibach front coil springs or OME front coils spring?

    Don't want a 2 inch lift just 1 inch or so.

    thanks

    The smallest lift springs I know of are the eibachs, 1.6".

    Do you think that this will fix my issue I have now with the wobbling of the truck at high speed?

    I do not. I think it is more than likely that some portion of the suspension is damaged, as the tech suggested, or that something is not torqued down correctly.
