    Use your stock coils. You don't need to purchase coils with the 5100's. THey are adjustable.

    that is my set-up now stock coil w/5100. I guess I'm un happy with it. on my wash board 2mil drive it has a giggling sensation. and I swear I feel the coils action or vibe. I like the handling on pavement however. Feels like shock is too much for coil. I dunno, just thinking new coil could be answer. i'm using stock coil from 96.

    doh,
    TRD coil is considered stock and the shock was designed for it.

    wheelers 5 pack. I have a camper shell it is heavy leer type.

    • See, now my ride sucks with the 5100's and I think it is due too the fact I did not realize I had after market shocks and springs already. I remembered when I did the 5100 install that the shocks I took off were tokico. I've already warned out the end links and get clanking already from beating it all up(the Sus) on these bumpy roads with this mis-matched Sus. set-up I had.
    • I re-read the Sticky after Janster told me to search. I've read it before, but it helps me bring it to this conclusion.
    am i on the right track now for decent set-up and ride:confused:

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    You'e got a V6 xtra cab, and the usual recommendation for that spec is the OME 881 if you are lifting the rear a bit.

    Several of us have recently installed OME 881s with 5100 in the front set @ zero and with Wheeler's 5-pack (1.5 lift) and 5100s in the back. We all like them a lot.

    I haven't had a chance to do any offroad travel in the mountains yet. It is awesoem all day on pavement. MTGirl and steve-o 77 have been having more fun in the dirt, though. They may have better feedback on washboard/rough road performance.

    I'm under the truck spraying penetrate oil on the nuts and bolts in preparation of the leaf install and noticed my bump stops have been in use. real shinny spot where bump stop hitting frame. might order some new bump stops just for the hell of it.

    yep, Im loving the new setup. I took it out for its first real wheeling trip on Thursday and it really did great. Bottomed it out a few times but the ride was a lot smoother on rough terrain. I also live down a dirt road with some washboard and it definitely feels a lot more solid than the stock suspension did. (the key to washboard is to go fast, that is not possible on my road since its near other houses).
