Suspension question

I have the Bilstein 5100’s on my 06 V-8 Limited 4WD and used my OEM springs and I’ve decided to upgrade my springs. What should I go with? Right now I’m looking at the Toytec/Eibach front springs and Toytec Superflex rears. I’m also wanting to upgrade my UCA’s and looking at the SPC’s. From what I understand if I upgrade my springs I don’t want to use the height adjustment on the 5100’s? Any ideas on the springs and what to go with and the UCA’s? Whatever I go with I still want that level look without the front droop and upgrade my off road ability a bit. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

So I suggest looking through the threads on "lift and tire central" in the 4th gen section as well as '4th gen suspension options"

Theres too many details wed need to make recommendations IE - what lift do you want, what size tires do you want to run, how much weight do you carry or tow occasionally or regularly

Lots of people are willing to sell you springs, so do some research and know what your end result goal is

the front bilstein setting also depends on the lift youre looking for and the height of the coil overs. IE you can get 2 inch taller coils and put bilstein at lowest perch if you want a 2'' lift or you can can get stock sized springs and put bilstein at the 1.75 perch

I would be running the stock 18 inch wheels with my Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Iím wanting just a 2Ē-2.5Ē lift nothing crazy. Weight would be a few hundred pounds of gear and towing would be an A-liner A frame pop up camper which would be connected to the back quite a bit since next year the wife and I are hitting the road full time.

Ok great readings! From what I gather 885 OME and Toytec rear Superflex coils make a good combo? SPC UCAís have a history of unreliability so I will go with either Icon UCAís or total chaos.

So with the OME 885ís are they specifically for extra weight in the front compared to the 884ís?

Correct - about 200 pounds, which you may or may not notice without weight
