    I know @JerryM is running the 6112's in the front. Maybe him or @YotaDan can give their thoughts on them.

    I have an SR5 and I wanted to level it out but I have heard that the 5100 Bilstein are a little stiff but I couldn't find anyone that was running 6112. I want a nice ride even with 1.25" lift. To level it out.

    Subbed for the answer. I want to level out my new 16 SR5 Premium and install 275 or 285/70-17's on some sort of black wheels to run for wintertime.

    The ride will be a little stiffer then stock but that is expected when anything is lifted. I think it rides better with being stiffer because you don't get the nose dive when breaking and it helps with body roll. I absolutely love my 6112's. Keep in mind when you upgrade your tires that can also make it stiffer. The thicker the side walls the hard the tire in most cases. You need to look at all the ways you want to use the runner and do your lift and tire from that . You will have to give one way or the other unfortunately. Good luck post your upgrades. You can look at my build in the 5th gen builds.

    Response on them so far has overall been phenomenal. You get an amazing performing set of shocks for the money.

    I've been running the 6112/5160 set-up, set at 1 1/4" lift up front, for more than a year and really could not be more pleased. But, the stock suspension felt far to soft and "mushy" for me. The 6112's, at this ride height, are perfect for me .. the ride seems firmer, but more importantly, more confident and secure. I prefer it over the Bilstein/Toyota PRO suspension.

    Yes. Stock coils in the rear, but, I don't haul too much weight, and only occasionally pull a utility trailer, so I'm quite happy.

    You do a spacer for the coils?
