    A bit stiffer...the GF said the truck feels more like a truck now. :p The stock suspension is pretty soft. I like the way it feels. Handles a lot better, but boy do I hate the numb, vague feedback from the steering wheel...and why did toyota make the steering so light?! :mad:

    Anyway, the ride is awesome. I really like it :)...I'd opt for some nice Icon coilovers, BUT she doesn't wheel and we don't have any intentions to so there would be no need to spend the extra $$$. I think the 5100s are great for the price.

    Really? Maybe it's the tires? I also put a 1/4" spacer on the driver side to fix the taco lean...beats me! :p

    Thanks everyone for the compliments! :)

    Tacoholic, thanks I love my Subie! I love her Taco though too, just wish it was 4wd. :(

    Kind Regards,
    Ryan

    Do you have to use wheel spacers with the 5100's and stock wheels?
    Or did you just do it for appearance.:confused:

    Looking back I assume derekabraham does not have wheel spacers, correct.

    No need for spacers, just wanted the wheels to come out a bit. :)

    Ok, thanks for the clarification.

    One more question, did you use the stock coils up front?

    Yes, I used the stock coils in front. :) The ride is nice and firm. Truck feels more composed.
