    I've had the toytec coilovers on my truck for a while now and foolishly have decided to now get a plate bumper with winch, probably an allpro.

    I know with my curent set up the front will sag, my questions are; do I need to replace my front coilovers and shocks? or can I swap out the coils with heavier ones? I really hate to have to replace the whole thing and now sell the toytecs.

    Or can I still run the toytecs with the billy 5100's and just deal with the sag?

    Please help me out here, I try not to post stupid questions but I cant find anything on this.

    Can't you just crank the coilovers up a little bit?

    I just received an email this morning for Toytec in a response to this same question which I asked them. They said the toytec coils are rated at 600lbs and should do just fine with bumper and winch. I think the super stiff OME coils that are available are about 650lb rating which would be my other option - OME lift is not adjustable though

    X2. Or do you have 5100's with just OME springs like the 885's?

    Don't the Toyec lifts come with Eibach's rather than OME's?

    They are the ULK coilovers that come assembled with the billy 5100. I thought about jacking the coils up to the full 3 inches, they're at 2.5 now. I dont know if that is an acceptable solution to this issue. i dont want to get the bumper and then have to correct my sagging front the "right" way when I could have done it the first time.

    I know this is an old thread but just wanted to put my input in. My front sags quite a bit after the front bumper and winch. Ive been looking for a beefier Coilover period, im probably going to go with Icon or King with a heavier spring.

    I just wanted to say it will sag. Im pretty close to positive on that haha.
