    ARB deluxe winch bar with 2 Hella 500 lights, 31.5 x 10.5 BF Goodrich All-Terrains, K&N Cold Air Intake
    I've got an 06 tacoma 4x4 and I just put a big ARB deluxe winch bull bar on the front that has sagged the front end down about 2". I was wondering the best way to level it out so I have have the wheel travel that I used to. I was going to just put a 2" spacer on the front, but I'm worried about my coils losing their strength. I've heard about those 5100's, but I'm not quite sure if they're the right choice. Anybody have any ideas?

    thanks

    The Bilstiens are a night and day improvement over ANY spacer kit! But because of the additional weight of your accessories I would recommend a custom valved replacement coil over. But if it comes down to cost Bilstien hands down!

    You need stronger coils... like 700 pounders... (and then new shocks to make the truck ride better... :D)
