    I have some 5100's on the way and I was wondering if I find some TRD coils the ride would be better than my base model coils?

    The TRD OR coils are progressive, so they get stiffer the more they are compressed. That may make the ride harshewr than the base model springs when preloaded. Not sure but just thinking out loud here.

    I have a base 05 4X4 reg cab.I will be putting on Billy 51's
    BUT I bought a pair of 09 double cab TRD Sport coils used.
    They are the non progressive same type as with my base model but will be a little stiffer.I hope not much.

    Im getting the feeling that progressives are NOT all the rage.... Or am I wrong?

    Sorry, I know this is an old thread. I am planning to do the same thing as 'arizonataco' and put TRD front coils + front and rear shocks (w/less than 2,000 miles on them) on my '06 regular cab 4X4. Does anyone know if this can be done as a direct swap, or are other parts needed?

    Thanks for any advice!!

    Any of the 4x4 parts are interchangable. Just so you know, SR5 and TRD Sport coils are the same... TRD Off Road Coils are progressive and are the only ones that are different.
