    Something doesn't sound right.... If you can run the stock shocks, the spring weight must be heaver than stock and the springs are NOT longer.

    60k that's what I've looking at or ome. this one sparked my interest though. The spacers are just 1/2 top plates compared to a full spacer lift

    So you think they are stiffer. Im not worried about ride its a truck. But the stiffer coils would make it a harsher ride correct?

    I have the full OME kit on mine; can't speak for the billies, but any aftermarket coil is going to be stiffer than stock. I didn't really notice a difference after it was installed.

    Ok appreciate it. I also messaged toytech in theory this would be a better than a spacer right? Thanks for the help.

    It would be a stiffer set up. But that doesn't mean bad. Less small bump compliant, but also less brake dive and would most likely handle heavier hits better.
    It really depends on the spring and how linear or progressive it is.

    The OME springs are both longer AND have a heavier spring weight, (just not that much heavier)
