    Hey guys, first post here!
    I have a 2013 SR5 Prerunner V6 Auto that is bone stock (besides a Flowmaster muffler). Ive owned it since 2016 and the truck now has 170k on the clock. I need new lower ball joints in the front (there is decent play and the boots are torn) and I would like to replace the shocks all around as well. I occasionally go offroading with my friends as well as using it to haul my bikes out to the sand dunes, but above all it is my daily.

    Ive looked at 5100's but Im not sure how well they would work with stock springs. I also would like to do a leveling kit. I dont necessarily want to lift the whole truck, I think if the front matched the rear it would give me the look I want.

    If I were to change springs, what would you guys recomend? I want a setup that will give me a nice ride on the road, allow me to have some fun off road, and still be able to tow small trailers when I need too.

    While I think that the truck is fantastic as is, I have the mentality of upgrading when replacing, so if there are any other recomendations I would love to here it.

    I plan on doing OME springs (I think 883 are 1.5 inch lift) with 5100 shocks (set to zero) to level my PreRunner.

    A good friend of mine has the 5100's on stock springs. He set the 5100's to level the truck, and it's still a comfortable ride. It's a tad stiffer, but I think that's because he set the shocks for a lift instead of using a spring.
