    The coils are longer and do the lifting vs preloading the stock coils with the billies to gain height

    $500 from Toytec will lift your front end (shocks+coils). Keep in mind you cannot assemble coils and struts yourself without a spring compressor. Just spend a little more, do the front end up real nice, new shocks all around, and go with AAL's for the back. These are not adjustable, but lots of folks go with OME stuff for a 3" job. http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=120&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72


    Shocks regulate the speed at which your coilovers and leaf springs move, so they definitely play a huge role in ride quality, but they aren't as load-bearing as you might think...aren't responsible for handling the big hits.

    Could I not just get new coils in the front and a AAL in the rear? And call it quits? BTW I dont offroad even tho i do have BFG ATs.
