Who's running LC springs and Bilstein 5100 3rd gen shocks in the rear?

Okay, I know this topic is has been covered before but I can't find a thread about it.

I have some LC 7.5/8 wrap springs that I want to use with my BS 5100 3rd gen specific (24-249966) rear shocks. I'm currently pairing the 5100 rears with OME 906 but with added weight from camping/wheeling gear, the rear sags. Plus I want to get an aftermarket rear bumper with dual swing outs in the future.

The BS 5100 is meant for 0-2" of lift but the LC springs gives around 4" from what I've read.

Is any running pairing the LC 7.5/8 wrap springs with BS 5100? Any issues? Would rather not spending money on another shock.

You'll need longer shocks for sure. Sonoran Steel sells a lift with 7.5 wrap land cruiser coils and he offers it with tokico black shocks or 4th gen 4runner rear shocks. 1996-2002 - Classic System 1.2 [96-02_complete] - $1,575.15 : Sonoran Steel Fabrication LLC, Toyota Truck Parts

These are the 4th gen 4Runner shocks he offers it with for the rear: Bilstein 5100 Rear Shock Set for 2003+ 4Runner, 2007+ FJ Cruiser (33-187174 x2)
14.91 collapsed and 23.5 extended compared to 12.91 collapsed and 20.79 extended with your current shocks.

They will be too short.
Not sure if you will damage anything but you will not have any down travel.

I run the FJ/4th gen rear 5100 they are great.

Do you have any problems with the compressed length being too long?

So far I have not.. or have not noticed anything.
I run extended durobump bumpstops which are designed to be ran with these length shocks. I asked the owner guy before getting the shocks.

FYI I run LC 8 wraps if it makes a difference

Damn...was hoping it would work since I just installed it today.

Oh well, time to shop for some 4th gen shocks.

I too had those bilsteins when it was stock height and I liked them so much that I wanted to get the same ones when I lifted it. I ended up going with the superflex coils and came across long travel 5100s for up to 4Ē lift and it is basically a 4th gen bilstein shock. So thatís what I went with and it feels great

Here's a pic comparing the LC 7.5 (Double Purple light blue White)/8 (Purple Green White) wrap I just installed today with the OME 906 I had on.

The LC's were from a '91 FZJ80. The OME had about two years on them.

I got about 2.5" increase with the LC's on both sides.

In order to not start a new thread about this exact subject, I'm running LC 7.5 wrap coils now and the Bilstein 5100 24-100144 shocks. The rebound speed is too fast IMO and I end up with a pogo-y ride. They are very firm when compressing them to get them installed or when just pushing them down by hand, but they extend really quickly. I bought them 5 years ago, but never got around to installing them until recently. Anybody else feel like this particular shock is too soft for this application? I tried these same shocks with 891 coils and they are just really underdamped in my experience. I can't in good conscience sell them to anybody. I don't think they're "bad", just wrong for the application.

I have also tried OME 60028 (Firm) shocks with both sets of coils and they are far too stiff. The rebound speed on those can be measured in minutes. I originally had the 891's paired with the OME 60027, but they were 13 years old and had gotten rusty. The upper bushings were pretty shot and the stem washer was rusted to the threaded stud. They rode just fine. But, I figured I should retire them due to all the rust. So, I tried the 5100s I had with the 891s and had a bouncy rear end.

I had the 60027s paired with 3 different rear coils over the years, an NWOR progressive 3" spring, a Downey Off-Road 3" linear spring and the 891s. They were never harsh like the new 60028s. The 60027s are listed as the firmest of the OME shocks. I bought the 60028s since I liked the 27's with all the coils I had tried them with and I figured the 28's would be a better fit since they aren't supposed to ride as firm according to the product literature. They were punishing with the 891s, and the 5100's were unusable, so I got a set of the LC coils from a forum member, installed them and it still rode like crap with the 60028s. Sigh.

I've ordered a set of the correct LC shocks from ToyotaPartsDeal.com to go with the LC coils...

Those are Tundra rear shocks - meant for a leaf spring suspension. Leaf springs have built-in damping (friction) - so shocks for them will be much differently valved than a coil-sprung suspension. Most have reported they are poorly valved for the 4Runner...

Yep. Can confirm they suck for this application. They are sold as the "soft" shock for 2-3" lifts on a few sites. As I said, I bought them 5 years ago and never got around to trying them out until this year. There are a lot of parts being sold for these trucks which are just a really bad fit for these vehicles. It's amazing how much bad info there is out there. I hadn't been on any forums since the mid-2000's until this year. So, I prolly missed out on some good advice during that time.

Watching this thread. I've currently got 2" spacer front and back and someone in my wheeling club is offering LCs for free, don't know how many wraps yet (hoping for 7.5s, I don't want too much rake before I tackle the front) and it would be good to get the right shocks for the springs first time around if I grab them.

What exactly kind of ride are you going to get with those? I am focused at least a tad more on offroad performance (anything is probably going to be better on or offroad than my current 2" spacer lift that the PO says was on there).
