Bilstein 5125 225/70 or 170/60 Valving?

I just ordered the SAW's from Wheelersoffroad and also took advantage of the rear bilsteins for the rear at there special price. 5100 series.
I recieved the 5125 which is fine but i am not shure on the valving.
The P/N is F4-BE5-6252-H5 which is valved @ 225/70. I think these would be to stiff a ride in a tacoma. :dunno:

Would the 170/60 be better?
Any thoughts?

depends on your driving style. I'm running 170/60 in my crawler, but ran 255/70 in my Tacoma. The 255/70/deaver 9 leaf combo matched the Donahoes very well IMO.

I have the 225/70 shocks with stock springs and poser blocks. Rides fine on the road in my opinion with 33's. Handles nice off-road also. I purposely went with them for towing and hauling even though I drive empty 90% of the time.

Ya. Maybe i will stick with them becuse i haul a lot of crap around to.
Plus i am going to bigger tires soon from 31's
I'll try them out for a while and if i don't like them i will switch to the 170's
Thanks.

I'm running 5150's with 255/70 valving and I like the ride. No complaints here. Some peeps don't like the ride, but I do. It's all just a matter of personal preference.
