    [​IMG]I want this setup on my 06. The Toytec 3" with AAL. but I just got the TSB work done and was wondering if it will still work or do I need a special AAL..... Another question I have is this kit comes standard with the LIGHT duty coils. I was told to get the MEDIUM duty coils because I have a DBL cab, but the site says only the medium coils will work with OME shocks. I dont want to buy them, I just got the Bilsteins put on. Help me out guys.

    Yes. You need the 885 coils, but just so you know, the best ride will be had with the OME n140s shocks. They should have an AAL for the rear TSB springs.

    Use the 885's. The only difference between the 884's and the 885's are that the 885's are a bit longer. You can use them with your current shocks, but the ride might not be as good. It would be the same with the 884's.

    Oh ok. Well Chris you kno me a little and you kno I like to do it the right way. But even though Toytec says buy the OME shocks if I want medium coils I can go against that and just put the medium coils over my TSB Bilsteins? Is that what your saying?

    You "can". The TRD Bilstiens are designed to dampen a spring that has a 540# spring rate. The OME coils have a 590# rate, and are longer than stock. They will over work the shocks, and if off road, they will heat up, and fade fast. As they are not valved for the spring, the street ride may be harsh. You can always sell the TSB Billies to re coup some of the money for the OME shocks.
