    After almost a year of deliberation (having leaned toward Dobinson then Eibach) I've decided on the Bilstein 6112/5160 combo (my goal is a modest 2.5/1.0 lift)

    It's clear that this particular Bilstein combo is the more Off Road capable set up of the bunch. Currently my rig is a DD which I most often drive (95%) on the expressway at speed, though with this setup I'd be far more inclined to get it off-road. If I do go with this beefier Bilstein shock/strut combo I would likely be deciding between the Bilstein, Dobinson or Eibach lift springs in the rear.

    *side note - I'll likely go w 275 Copper AT3s

    1. Given this strut choice, which of these are the most highly regarded pairing among this T4R community?
    2. How strongly should I consider the Wheelers rear springs?
