    After doing some poking around here and elsewhere, I put some Billy 5100's on my 2009 Taco DC SB TRD Sport and, as others said, it is a DRAMATIC improvement. No lift or other mods, but the car is much smoother over regular road bumps and driving, yet maintains the stiffer handling in cornering, etc. Very happy with the upgrade.

    Thanks for that info. I too am concerned with non-lifted ride quality. I upgraded the struts in my SR5 from the stock Tokicos (they suck donky weeners) to the Bilsteins from a TRD model (I think they are 4600s) and I got a serious improvement in ride quality. Your information tells me I might get an even more improvement by upgrading again to 5100s. Only problem is the cost factor. It would be over $300 for those.
