You are correct that they are in different categories, but I wasn't comparing 5100's to 6112's. My point was that the extended and collapsed lengths for 4Runner 5100's and 6112's are the same as well as Tundra 5100 and 6112's so that the benjamin247 could see that there isn't a big difference in max lift heights between 4Runner and Tundra shocks.

Edit: I agree with you on intended use of each though

My apologies for the mis-interpretation.

Update

Hey guys,

Just an update. I ended up going with the Tundra's 6112 and the FJ 5160 w/ OME 891. I ****ing love it. I have a little bit of a rake, but overall sitting at ~2.5in taller. It is a bit stiffer since I have no weight on the car yet, but still better than the original OEM setup I had (before it started giving out, I'm at 400k on the car). I haven't gotten the chance to take it off road yet because of this stupid virus situation... So... I guess I'll save up for 285/75/16r BFG KO2s or the Falken Wildpeak.

I've been looking at this setup for mostly street driving, though streets in seattle are so poor it's like driving offroad a lot of the time. My question is; if I'm not planning to lift at all would the 6112 match well with 5100 in the rear or should you always pair with the 5160s? I've been looking at package deals and I see both pairings offered

I just put 6112 up front with 5160 in the rear.

I would honestly say your probably not going to notice any difference between the 5100/5160 on the same coil spring.

I think if you get the package deal the 5160's will end up running you maybe 140-150 more than the 5100 setup? I think that is what I figured @ the time. so I just said what the heck lets try the reservoir ones.

but the 5100,5160 are spec'ed almost the same. I think the 5160's are like .05 less expanded length wise. small enough it does not matter.

BTW it's a great setup either way, very nice ride quality.

Thanks, it seemed to me they were the same just with the addition of the reservoir. One huge difference though, the 5160's are backordered from Bilstein for 16 weeks! I tried a lot of online merchants and they were all out of stock but I ended up going with AJ-USA since they had the best price. The 6112 are shipping immediately and I was wondering why "it is recommended that the driver side circlip is installed two positions higher than the passenger side circlip." Only the KDSS models are even on both sides

Lots of stuff on the driver side that isn't on the passenger side. Front differential, transfer case, front driveshaft, fuel tank, and driver. Setting the driver side higher compensates for the uneven distribution of weight. I'm not sure I would go 2 settings higher, but I have no direct experience with 6112's.
