    what is a better ride quality set up??? 2.5 inch daystar polyurethane coil spacers up front or 3" revtek front lift(can be ordered from wheelers)
    anyone running either of these?
    I love my 2.5 daystar spacers... rides awesome (people hate these i know but they improved my ride quality of my 99 TRD suspension) , but im putting on a bumper and i think i want to throw the revtek on the front to compensate for the weight of the bumper...(dont want my front end to droop)hence the extra 1/2 inch...
    any input? thanks

    maybe i should get new TRD front springs? I'm thinking my stock front springs have probably sagged a bit since the truck is 10 years old?

    or some OME springs that give lift

    Given the age of your truck, your best bet is to get 4 new shocks, and new front springs. OME or Eibsch. Dont use the spacer on them.

    My bilstein hd shocks are bigger in diameter than the original yellow Factory TRD bilsteins BUt the same length.. just got them put on 1 1/2 yrs ago when i got the spacer kit...
    Will the Spacers not work with taller ome springs?
    Thanks for your help

    No. You cant use a spacer lift with the OME springs.
