    Hi all, sorry im new to lifts and stuff like this. So after reading all the info on the ome and bilsteins I decided I wanted to go with the adjustable billies.

    On the toytec site, there are two sets of billies sets. One is for $629 and the other for $899. After reading all about them I guess the main difference is one of the kits the front coilovers comes fully assembled plus has a rear block kit, rear axle degree shims for proper pinion angle alignment, and u bolts. Not sure if the rear shocks the same.

    I don't really care about the front coils not being put together, I can use my stock one correct? My question is, are all the extra parts and different shocks for the rear really necessary? I'm 90% on the road and 10% offroad and even then it isn't anything too serious? I just want the closest ride to stock with a lil lift so I can stuff in more agressive tires.

    Go with the Bilstein Adjustable lift kit with 5100 shocks or the OME Suspension lift kit. Add-a-leafs no blocks.

    Using Bilstein shocks instead of your stock shocks is going to give you a better ride quality. And like Ryan said, you are going to want an AAL (add-a-leaf) instead of a block in the rear.

    I think I read somewhere that the OME coils with 5100's don't fit properly? I am sure other people run that exact setup but this is just for future reference.

    I am talking about the coil fitting properly to the "plate" that can adjust with the snap ring on the 5100's. I think I read that the OME coils are too thick (?) to fit on that plate securely. Maybe I am wrong just curious.

    Yea I heard of that. Don't know too much about it. Maybe I'll look into to it before pulling the trigger on a set up. Do u need new shocks and all that with spindles? Who's makes spindle lifts?

    No on new shocks. I ordered some b/c it can save some expensive parts from snapping while wheeling.

    They are basically the same but the $629 does not have a height adjustable collar at the bottom. They are pre set at 3" and ready to bolt on. For $899 there are better coilovers out there. You'll love the ride from the 5100/eibach set up. Spindles are the better way to lift the front on 2wd but you'll need to also lift the rear as they provide 3.5-4" lift depending on brand. I'd read around a little more!
