UPDATE as of 0615 4 inch lift Rough country with Bilsteins set at 2.5 and rear 2 inch add a leaf with 3 inch block sitting on 285/75-17 34's...
    Spoke with a "4wheelpart" sales rep. He reccommended coil spring spacers because I already have stock billies on my 2012 4X4 TRD Sport. He said it would level it with out effecting the ride comfort. Any inputs???


    Thanks for the inputs. Another question, pros/cons for replacing the rear shocks also with 5100s.

    Alright... Got the Billies on up front.... definetely rides better better than the TRD billies. My truck actually need the max at 2.5 inch. It's siting level will get some pics soon. Next mod 1.5 inch wheel spacers and slamming on some 275/70 on my stock 17. Hope all works will and need no trimming. I'll let you all know later when I find some good tires off Craigslist.... Pictures to follow... SHOOOOTS LATAS


    Check out my photos for new pics with Bilsteins 5100's set at 2.5", stock TRD sports wheels with 1/4 inch wheel spacer on Nitto Terra Grappler 285/70/17..... SWEEEEET

    Billies without a question. I have them and their great. Also they'll save you a ton of money down the road on wore out suspension components you will get with spacers.
