    I have recently lifted my tacoma with 6 inch pro comp. I am thinking of getting coil overs, what would be different from the original if i get a good aftermarket one. also what ones would be recomended?

    Once I get them installed, I will let you know how the ride difference is. I've been a little under the weather so it might be awhile before I get them on. I am currently running adjustable Bilstein 5100's with the spacers right now. And yes...you can run any aftermarket shock with the spacers. I would definitely say Icons would be your best option though. These shocks were built specifically around our trucks.

    If you do decide to go this route PM me and I will hook you up with the best guys in the business to order from.
