    do ome/ebiach springs really feel much better than the stock springs? i just purchased the front bilsten 5100s and a 1.5 wheelers aal for my 1st gen tacoma, i am installing everything on saterday. is the ride going to be alot different than my stock trd set up? i have some extra money, enough for either the rear bilsten 5100s, ome springs, or the ebiach springs. which one should i choose? i read alot of threads on here but i am not sure what to get! i hope i can get it aligned properly without uca's since its under 3".

    OME or Ebiach coils will give you lift without preloading so yes they will give you a better ride.

    I'd go with 5100s for the rear. I installed my 5100s on the front first and the rear end of my truck felt loose/sloppy with the stock shocks. Once I installed the 5100s on the rear the ride was better than stock, especially when cornering/braking and on the highway.

    i called wheelers off road and was convinced into getting the rear 5100. it seemed better to have a more even ride, thanks!

    How did your completed lift turn out? Are you happy with the ride? How does it compare to stock?
