    They would be the same; just expect them not to 'fade' as quickly when going through unimproved roads at speeds.

    If I did it all over again, I would just go with Bilstein's and get the appropriate leaf pack to support whatever weight you'll have in the back.

    Bilstein in the rear; I've never tried or had Bilstein's up front but I will as soon as I pick up these extra parts later today from another member.

    I only know of OEM springs (which they'll be worn) or OME in different spring rates and lengths that'll not only provide lift (negating the need to preload on the shock itself) and support any extra weight up front.

    I'm sure there are others but those are the only two brands I know of that get used besides what comes on King, Fox, ADS, etc...for all I know Eibach makes those for them

    Moog might have options but I've only heard of stock replacement ones

    Moog offers OEM replacements.

    Oddly enough they offer 'double cab' and 'access cab' variants on Rockauto.

    I bet they're the same part number but I haven't cared to check. If they're not the same part number, I think it's cool they offer them in different spring rates.

    Everything but the driveshaft. B03A - 410
    The winch that was recommended by one of the club leaders here is this WARN ZEON Platinum 10S $1,900 winch. BLING BLING.

    https://www.amazon.com/WARN-92815-ZEON-Platinum-10-S/dp/B00PZVHYHG

    I might use it two or 3 or 4 times a year.

    I think the 3rd gen Smitty 12k will do more than I'll ever need for $700.

    If I need to throw a few more Clevelands at it, I need to get a set of sliders which will be another $1,000. And a Gamviti roof rack.

    Then another Harrop eLocker for the rear and then an awning, and radio, and electronics..


    You can go through up some of these when messing around with 100s.

    An even 2 - 2.5 inch lift all the way around .. ideally I'd like to lift the front with springs and not preload the shock with the notches. Was reading forums and alot of 4runner guys like the 1st gen trd tundra springs up front for an easy 2.5" lift.. went down that rabbit hole because im ordering Sonora steel control arm bushings and noticed they sell adapters to make "big springs" fit "small" top plates

    http://www.sonoransteel.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_10&products_id=27

    I really like that idea but don't like the idea of spending 400 on a pair of trd tundra springs
