If it's a 14" spring there are generally no options over 700.

Finally put them on,the difference is around 3.5" before and after which I didn't expect,I am gonna adjust the preload ring to make it lower as I only want 1.5" like the TRD Pro.

I got nervous and then I saw the price and felt relieved that I got the OME kit as a beginner kit.

Same here. I was going with Bilsteins 6112/5160 but then realized I would still upgrade it to a higher end kit eventually,so why not do it right the first time and I decided to bite the bullets.

Yup since that’s what they recommended for 1.5” lift.

Almost any professional truck or rock crawler you will see KINGS on them and it looks like these are the same price
So are BFGs but it seems that people prefer other tires.

I had a local shop to me order the Elka with DC with the proper sized bushings pressed in for a 4th gen. They do not offer these for a 4th gen (yet?).
I was very wary of putting a 700# spring up front with not bumper, winch, or even dual battery. And I believe the 700# coil is a 13”. Wanting more lift then the advertised 1.5”-2” I had the shop install a 14” x 650# eibach spring.
I netted about 2.5” over my old Daystar spacer lift. I was concerned about over lifting these shocks as they list 1.5”-2” of lift. But I have had no problems with them. I like the adjustability of the compression on them as well. You can go to both extremes of soft and firm.

Woow really? King was once a new company also. I'm running the elka 2.5 remote resin on my 4th gen and I'm 100% happy. They are great on the street and just kill it rock crawling, i dont do high speed desert racing so no need for to go with king or icons.
BTW, those "professional" dont pay for their shit out of their pockets, and ain't given a choice, on what suspension or tires they run on their rigs..HUGE difference
