    I've got a 2006 2.7L 4x4 Tacoma with the 5100s set at 2.5 and AAL in the back and I have stock coils, my ride isint very good specially since I just got some mud terrain tires, I was just wondering what the best coils would be to give me a smoother ride on and off road or if new coils will even help, thanks

    Anytime you lift these trucks, the ride is going to stiffen up - nature of the beast. Whether its factory coils compressed for 2.5" lift or if you get straight 2.5" lift coils....they're all gonna ride ROUGHER than the stock truck.

    The higher the lift, the worse it'll be.

    So, with a lift - you sacrifice comfort.

    I had a set of 881 coils (and OME struts) on my 1st gen truck. That actually improved the ride (for me). But then again, the truck was 5 years old ...and had 65K miles on it with original suspension. So..... I can't really say whether or not it'll help you or not. It's A LOT of money to spend to take a chance to change things only to discover that you still don't like it.

    Breakage will depend on YOU

    The decisions you make and the style of driving you do....will determine that.
