    Is there any on highway ride difference between 2.0 coilovers and 2.5 coilovers. I just bought a 09 double cab long bed which is my new "family" car just traded from an FJ. I'm looking for a smooth ride due to wife and baby but i still want something that will perform when i go out for light wheeling.

    Thanks for the help.

    Depending on how hard you are off road, I would theink the 2.0's would be just fine for ya.

    Do they ride smoother than the 5100s? Also, if i get the matching billsteins in the back do i need an AAL or block?

    5100's are a great addition to your ride i had that setup all four corners, and people will do the aal no block. But in my opinion it doesnt compare to a true coilover the ride is so much smoother.

    Ive never been in a truck with 5100's, but I have Sway a Ways on my truck with almost 50K on them and I think my truck rides better than stock.

    I had those same axis wheels on my 03' tacoma, they look great, but I do not think they make them to fit the new tacos.
