    Hey guys it’s been some time since I have been on here but I have done my research on suspension lifts for my first gen but I can’t decide. I need help!!!! I have 3 solid options but i am not limited to them only.

    1st: bilstein 5100 front and rear with OME front 881 springs and an AAL in back. With SPC light UCAs

    2nd: bilstein 6112 up front with 5100 in rear. With an AAL and UCAS.

    3rd: toytec boss full kit. Includes coilovers in front and boss shocks in back with AAL and UCAs and others things like extended brake lines.

    I am wanting 2.5-3 lift that rides good off road and on road. This is still my daily driver.

    Please I need your guys help!!!!!!!!!

    They ride nice as far I can tell and I don't find them to be stiff on the highway, but that's subjective. I'm happy with them.

    Option 3 is just option one with fancy stickers, from my understanding anyway.

    Exactly what I said, the boss shocks are just Billy’s with different stickers.

    From what I understand anyway.

    I have a set of 881, less than a month old and less than 300 miles. PM me if you’re interested in price and decide to go that route.

    881 will do you plenty for your setup and you don’t have to worry too much about your CV angles.
