    Hey guy I have a 16 sr5 and I want to level it out what do you think is better the toytec springs that lift it 1.6" or the Bilstein 5100 adjable front struts?
    I plan on keeping oe size tires just going to get something more aggressive.

    Just go with the 5100 adjustable and I'd get the matching rear 5100s also just so it's all matching..... and then later if u decide to go higher all u need is new springs...

    Pretty much a stock ride ... If u change the springs then the ride will change for sure ...if u like a smooth stock ride go with the shocks

    This is with a 2" spacer lift in front(Supreme Suspension) and their 1.5" spacer in rear. Stock tires and wheels. No difference at all in ride quality, completely stock feeling.

    Yeah stock rear! It may need something done in the rear later down the road if I decide to tow or load it down. But for now I enjoy the look, thank you. @ecr6cyl10

    I would seriously consider adjusting your headlights now. At 1.75, your headlights will be aimed a couple inches higher and you will be blinding people.

    Yeah that's already been done. Ran into that problem with my Tacoma.
