Need new rear springs that work with Bilstein HD's. Stock springs isn't doing it

Hi,

I have a 2001 4Runner Limited and a year ago, I got Bilstein HD's all around and replaced the stock coils/springs with stock. While it did make a difference, I still think the rear is really easy to bounce, like there's no resistance. I apply a little downward pressure in the bumper and it barely resists.

I would like to know my options for the rear springs. I've heard good things about OME 906's but I don't know the exact part number and where to buy. I'm not even sure if those will fit as is when I give them to my mechanic to install. Please let me know, when you suggest something, if there's anything extra to be done.


All I know for sure is that I'm not replacing them with stock springs again. I bought MOOG stock springs a year ago and I don't think it was worth it.


Also I did some measurements from the center of the wheel to the wheel well.
Front: ~20.5-21" Rear: ~20" The rear definitely sits lower :/

I'm ok if the springs will lift the rear up to 2-3 inches max. I'm sure it'll settle down anyways. I don't tow or offroad. But I load a lot of computers in my trunk because I work as an IT field tech.

OME 906 coils

906s are your best bet for the money. Ride great, and will look good with your setup.

Thanks man!

Yea I had my mechanic check if those Daystar 1.5" spacers would do any good and he said no. I've already bought em for $35 in Amazon lol.

OME 906 will be the best coil that will provide the least amount of lift. If you have stock 01 coils on the front though, it will gave you a lot of rake with the rear being taller.

What are the downsides of having the rear taller? More momentum?

Other than it just looks terrible to me, I don't think there really is any valid downside. But I am a little OCD, so when I lifted my last two 4wd 4runners, I wanted them to sit level.
