    I just purchased some Bilstien 5100's for my 05 PreRunner. I was thinking of getting some Old Man Emu coils for the front? I am keeping the factory ride height, and am looking for a better ride, more control, and better handleing, Will the OME coils help or hinder?

    They will lift you, you cannot keep stock height with the OME coils

    Thanks! It says stock to 2" on ad. The 5100's with the front set at .85 should do the trick then. That should level it out and do all that I want over stock?

    x2, lowest lift with OME is 1.5" of lift and that's with the 883 coils.
