    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 .
