    well im separating from the air force in about a month and I want to buy myself a gift. Im thinking real hard about the fox 2.0's
    but I already have a new pair of 5100's sitting in the box in my living room.
    IDK if I should just get the toytec springs that go with the billys and add some TC uca's or go all out and buy the Fox's and add the UCA'a later?

    You already have the 5100's, so adding the coils for $429 would be far cheaper than the Fox's. Also, adding the UCA's is going to improve your flex and ride quality like woah.

    Personally, I think the Fox Co's and TC UCA's would be about perfect. Get a 650# spring OR, if they can option it, a 16" 600# rate. :D

    Yea I want the fox's really bad. I was starting to talk myself out of it but Im 98% sure ill be placing my order on wed.

    Now what exactly do the spring rate numbers involve? the lower the number the softer the spring?

    Depends on how many winds there are in the coil. Stay below 10 winds, and you should be fine. :)

    So i have pretty much decided that i am going to get the fox 2.0 coilovers from allpro, as well as the 2.0 rear fox shox. I will be putting them on my 09 DC 4x4 tacoma and I would like to achieve a 3" lift. On side not I have not had the TSB done on my truck, but i'm going to bring it to the dealer and try to get it done. What else would I need if I had the TSB done, and what else would I need if I did not have the TSB done?

    3" lift is gonna make the coilovers kind stiff......You should try them at 2.5" first.
