    It’s really nice. Very spendy.

    For what I do it may be a tad overkill but the adjustability is nice for towing. They are racing shocks so driving 45+ on forest and desert roads they seem to get smoother and more “cloud-like” the faster you go

    The Bilstein 8112 kit that Headstrong sells is awesome too. I probably could have gotten away with the 6112, but hindsight is 20/20.

    Check out the Bilstein 8112 technology it’s pretty nice too

    Yes. The 90021’s. My SPC ball joints wore out in 10 months...

    Emus are designed for heavy load bearing overlanders (I didn’t know this, but it makes sense coming from Landcruisers in Australia).

    If you want a cush ride go Bilsteins or some nice coilovers with a #600-700 spring depending on your front weight.

    I have 888s. About 20,000km on them (12,500 miles). I wouldn’t say that I have been hard on them. Also running ome soft ride shocks

    3rd gen specific Bilstein 6112s set at 4 and 3 in the front and 5160s in the rear. No AAL, leaf packs, or blocks in the rear. Goal was to level out the front to the rear stock height. First day the front was about 3/4 inch higher than the rear after alignment (bro lean). Today I measured, 3 days later and about 100 miles of driving, the front is less than 1/4 inch higher. Hopefully with a few more miles the fronts will settle to about even or a slight rake. If the front drops a little more, I'd say I achieved my desired lift. Will be adding either SumoSprings or air bags to aid when towing.

    100% agree. I went on an impulse YOLO buy and put the 2.5 inch pro comp leveling kit. My ride is stiffer than my first dance with a girl. I should have waited and done it all correct. It looks amazing though...obviously.. but would love it to be more comfortable.

    I’ll be swapping it all out for bilsteins end of year and get ripped by wife. But I’ll do it right the second time and be done with it. Well at least with suspension

    Are there any disadvantages to the 5100s set at the lowest setting with 885s? The original post makes it sound like 885s will eventually start to sag .

    So with that being the case, if I upgrade my coils to OME 885, where would you recommend I set my preload to achieve the same lift? I do plan to install a SOS Streamline bumper in the future along with a winch possibly.

    Not sure what would be best since I haven’t installed those coils before. Definitely plan for some sagging after the bumper though. Heard pretty good support from @HeadStrong Off-Road so you might want to ask them on the specifics for the 5100s. I had them before but with stock springs before I went with Kings.

    Anyone have an issue with VSC and Pre collision lights on after lift? I’ve got a 19’ and still have the lights on.. plan on getting a proper alignment this week will they be able to recalibrate both?

    Yes. On my 2018, my VSC and Pre-collision errors didn't show up after my lift, but did show up once the alignment was done. I use Toyota techstream to clear the errors, did nothing else. A week later, the errors haven't shown up again, I think I'm good. I'm guessing in my case, while my alignment was being done and the truck was turned on/off several times, maybe a sensor was tripped which caused the errors.

    Edit: If your alignment shop can't figure it out, you might ask them to simply reset your codes, and see if that takes care of it.
