    Anyone have a ARB on the stock (but post-TSB) suspension?

    Just curious how the the front suspension handles the extra weight. I know they're heavier and such, but they are not "that heavy".. I installed one by myself on my previous rig. I'll get a winch ready one, but wont install my winch till I'm able to upgrade the suspension... Not doing any wheeling in the near future, and I'd rather have the ARB first for protection and insurance against idiot drivers and moose...

    cheers!

    The TSB affects only the rear, correct? Your ARB would go on the front. If you are looking to balance them out, some OME 885s would probably be about right.

    No it also replaced all 4 shocks on non-TRD models like mine.. But yeah the coil springs up front are the non-TRD oem.

    OME will likely be my choice in the long run, but I'd prefer to do the ARB first. Just seeing if anyone has done it with oem susp, I'm not concerned about a little rake, but wondered if they notice the extra weight on the front end driving around (body roll, extra rebound, etc..)?

    886's with the weight. I had 885's and added an All Pro bumper and it dropped the front.
