    I may replace my stock front SR5 struts with stock Bilsteins. Anyone know if the stock coils can be used?

    Thanks for any information you can provide.

    Yup, they work fine. Its the same setup that the TRD sports have. I have a set of TRD fronts if you are looking for a pair.

    yes, but the eibach coils are really a nice upgrade. Its probably worth changing coils while you have it all apart. You won't regret the eibachs.

    I had the front Billy's set at zero and also added the 1.5" AAL in the rear.
    Just a subtle lift without the headaches/potential issues of going higher. And I like the stance of the truck. I could not get Toyota dealers in the Charlotte area to budge on the rear leaf TSB. So I had the AAL intstalled.

    Good Luck!

    AAL's are add a leafs (after market) from Toytec.com. The search window above will provide just about anything you want to know about your Taco.
