    I went pretty simple. Bilstein 5100 all around. Eibach pro lift coil springs and a toytec AAL for the rear. Just installed my front setup today.

    I’m currently waiting to n some longer ubolts to install the AAL. I reached out on here and got some sound advice on the shock/springs install. It was very easy after I figured out the bottle jack method. Did you get your coil overs pre assembled?

    LOL Oh Yes it does. I lifted my truck 4 different times already before I decided to long travel. My advice, don't mess around with inferior products. Save and buy what you want.
