    Hey guys i just wanted to get your advice on a couple options ive been floating around to save up for, Kinda just want to get a number in my head so i know when il be able to drop the cash for the lift.

    Front:
    885 OME Springs
    OME Shocks
    Total Chaos UCAs
    Top plate spacer

    Rear
    OME 2"AAL
    Bilstein 5100's set at 1"

    Or should i just go with OME all around?

    Im looking for a true 3" all around with better then stock ride quality.

    So my numbers might be a little off with the bilsteins. But you get the idea. Please chime in on a better set up if you know any!

    bilsteins only give off front lift. most people run aal or blocks in the rear..

    try researching on here and you'll see alot of members with the same/similar set up..

    I guess my next question is will i see better ride quality in the front with:

    Bilstein 5100s shocks.
    Old Man Emu shocks.

    I plan on doing a rear AAL with upgraded shocks for ride quality, Just not sure what offers the best ride, Besides ICON coilovers at almost $800!

    So you mean will you have better ride quality with OME springs, or with stock springs preloaded with the billys?

    This is the OME rear leaf springs in my Tacoma (2006 DBL CAB 4x4 TRD Sport Longbed)

    Did you put the leaf springs in yourself? I was wondering because I started mine yesterday and was having a hell of a time lining the springs up. Any advice? Gonna get back at it today, hopefully it goes better.
