    '10 D-CAB OFF-ROAD 4X4
    TRD CAI, GrillCraft.
    I have a 2010 Double Cab 4x4 I would like to life about 1.5 in the front.
    I like the Bilstiens as a Brand and Product. But don't like the fact of preloading the spring as I am loosing some ride comfort.

    What would be the best OME lift coil and with what shock would give me the as close to the factory ride but still give me some good offroad/beach cruising capabilities.

    I am just so confused which coil do I use 883/884/885/886...Jesus my head hurts b/c I am trying to absorb all of this and I still can make my decision.

    I would still like to keep a bit of the foward rake what would be the best route to go for the rear?

    Thanks for all the help/advice in advance

    Old Man Emu is a great suspension for on road ride quality with added off road performance.

    I would email tech@arbusa.com for selecting the correct coil to maintain factory rake. I believe you want the 885 coils.... not sure though

    I would also recommend going with the Old Man Emu lift all the way around. I believe it is the only complete lift that maintains factory rake. I have a 98 and love my suspension. I am very impressed and happy with it.

    Rather than just lifting the vehicle, OME is a completely new suspension and is much nicer than any stock suspension. The steering, ball joints, cv joints all are not put into extreme situations so that stuff should last a lot longer.


    You will be really happy with it and all the OME components that are needed come in a kit and work together - easier than piecing stuff together. It is also designed to work together.

    Just my 2 cents... There are plenty of other options and companies that people are happy with too.
