Difference between TRD Pro front struts & Bilstein 6112? More inside...

Hey all,

I have a new TRD Pro, and am interested in lifting/leveling it.

I've heard that the TRD Pro front struts are very similar to the Bilstein 6112 models, but without the adjustable spring perch.

I like to know if this is correct, and if so, how is adding a Toytec spacer lift to the TRD Pro struts different from adjusting the 6112 spring perches upward?

I may be mistaken, but it seems like raising the spring perch is extending the shock and/or preloading the spring, which I *think* is what the Toytec spacer lift fir the TRD Pro is doing.

This is the Toytec kit that I'm talking about/interested in:
https://www.toyteclifts.com/fj4rpro-...-4runners.html

I'd be looking to buy just the front spacers from that kit, and then pair them with T13 Eibach 1.5" springs on the rear:

Thanks!

The off the shelf 6112's will give you the correct stroke where as the spacer will give in increased down travel.. Its that simple

I use the TT spacer because I wanted to clear bigger tires before shelling out on a serious off road setup (I hit off road parks and trail ride once or twice a week). If you never plan on doing any hard wheeling just run the spacer and call it a day. When the pro factor units give in, just get the 6112's with adjustable perch and use the spacers as a paperweight.

I wouldn't think to much about it lol... Congrats on your Pro purchase, welcome to the family :-)

EDIT : There is also a difference in valving between the 6112 (off the shelf) and the Pro 6112, the latter is designed specifically for the truck.
