    OK so I am confused i need some help.. I have the 3 inch best seller lift on toytec. Its a coil And 1inch spacer in the front and leaf spring in the back. I still have my stock shocks with my lift and my ride is really rough.Im trying to decide what to do. i could eather get the OME 9000 for the front only, or the 5100 blistens for the back and front. the toytec site suggest the OME 9000 but it cost 300$. the 5100 are front and back for 300$ what should i do???? My main goal is to fix my stiff front suspension. thanks..

    Either is a good choice. It just depends what you want to spend. If it were me, I would put the billy's on all four corners.

    Not yet (backordered..........:frusty:). Yes they will work and should smooth it out for you.

    Yap, that's why.
    Those coils are not designed for the stock shocks!

    Upgrade those shocks and you will be golden.
    Personally, I would go with the OME shock in the front and you could go billy's in the rear.

    are the billys in the rear going to be better than the stock shock in the rear?

    Sorry to revive an old post but I'm looking into this kit and can't seem to decide which to go with either. What are the main differences between the OME and Bilsteins?

    Thanks

    Sorry to necro-post, but... I'm in a similar boat.

    Been trying to decide whether to get;

    - Bilstein 5100's (x4) w/front set @ max, with stock coils & 1.5" AAL

    - OME 3" coils w/spacers, with stock shocks & 1.5" AAL



    * Yes, this is a "budget" lift. But I gotta start somewhere, other than spacer-lifts...

    :)
