    I currently have the ToyTec 3" spacer lift with AAL. I am looking to replace shocks/struts with the 5100's. I was thinking about getting the ToyTec coilovers or get the OME coils and use my current spacer for the full 3" for the front to use with the 5100's. Which do you think would be the better daily ride?

    Cadillac will. Coilovers aren't necessarily better ride cause it depends on how high you have them set at. I hope you are kidding about your second setup??? OME w/ 5100's and 3" hockey pucks???

    What year is your vehicle? A better setup would be the 5100s on a middle setting and a 10mm topspacer kit. For a plusher dd ride.

    Dan if you run a top plate spacer with billies set at 1.75 won't the uca make contact with the coil? since the 5100's are longer than the stock billy's?

    its an 05 access cab v6 4x4. Think I may have settled on getting the OME 884 coils with spacer for 3" and OME shocks/struts for front and rear

    anything will be better than the spacers.
    I think I would go back to stock before putting those rough ass spacers back on.

    Thanks, I currently have the toytec 3" spacer lift with AAL, but I am hoping this will squeeze a little more lift in there. I will take some before and after.

    Be careful going above 3" if you are a 4x4
