    Hello,
    I was looking at the 5100 Bilstein but when you look it says does not fit the 4runners do you know if these are compatible for the 16s?

    I don't think they are....I have an 04 with the 5100 lift in it....the suspension is set up differently on the 16s

    I absolutely love the look of my 4runner now with the 3in lift but it is very stiff....there is almost no play in the suspension so it is a very bumpy ride

    So if u are going for looks, bilstein is a great lift, but if u still want a comfortable ride ID look into other lifts

    If all u want is a leveling kit then any brand will do...all they leveling kit is are spacers the sit on top of ur OE suspension so the ride quality won't change much

    probably because databases aren't updated with 2015 models yet. anything 2015 should work. worst case, call up @ToyTec Lifts, @YotaDan, or Total Automotive Performance.

    Okay i have a 2016 trail check it out in the 5th gen builds site and you'll see that bilstein makes a great set up. The ride of a 16 is completely different then an older model.

    Nice T4R! I picked up a 2016 t4r sr5 midnight black. I want to level the front as well. How is the ride with the 5100's compared to stock?

    The ride is a little stiffer then stock but it has less nose dive when braking.

    Thanks. I will probably will go with the 5100 set at .85. I know toytec has a 1/2 top plate spacer that will lift it 3/4 inch. Anyone running the 1/2inch top plate spacer? If so did you get 3/4 to 1inch of lift.
