    I have a 2005 DCSB TRD OR 4x4 that I am planning on lifting in the near future. I am going to have approximately 120lbs of extra weight up front and have an ARE shell on the back. I would like to end up with between 2 and 2.5 inches of lift, but definitely don't want to exceed the 2.5in mark. The two lifts I am looking at are the OME Suspension Lift kit from Toytec with 885 springs and drivers side lean spacer or the Bilstein Adjustable Lift Kit with 5100 shocks. I would set the 5100's at .85 and use a drivers side lean spacer with this kit as well. 2in Toytec AAL would be used with both lifts for the rear.

    If it was your build, which would you put on your truck. Thanks for your help!!

    I'm doing the Bilstein Adjustable lift kit with 5100 shocks because it is a couple $100 cheaper than the OME kit, yet it rides just about the same. I am also doing the 2" AAL which will give me a little rake which I want.

    I have decided to go with the OME lift with the 885 springs. I think that it will give me a better ride overall with the slighlty softer springs, and I will not be pre-loading them either.

    My 5100s ride nicer than stock. I think you'll be fine.
