    No lift but nicer ride. Get an AAL for the rear.

    I had the stock Bilstein shocks with an Alcan AAL for awhile and the rear was pretty stiff. Once I installed the 5100 the ride was a lot softer and smoother over bumps.

    Cleared headlights, Black emblems, Painted black valence on front bumper, 2.5" 5100 Billys front, 1.5" AAL rear, Satin black TRD O/F wheels with 265/75 16 Definity M/T, Spidertrax spacers
    The bilsteins are nice. I've ridden in a Taco with them. I personally have OME and find them to be a bit softer than the 5100s. If you are looking for a softer ride go OME, if you are wanting a nice compliant, firm ride, 5100s.

    Kind Regards,
    Ryan
