alright heres the question.

which coils takes the bacon... haha ok

im a TRD prerunner and i have the height ajustable bils 5100s. MY COILS are shot to hell because even with the bils5100s set on the full lift i am only getting about about 1.5"s of lift. so obveously i need new coils.

i offroad when i get a good chance. maybe once every 3 months... i dont mind a rough ride and i want to spend the minimum amount of cash on a new set of coils (or used). soooo

which is better in my shoes, Eibach or Old Man Emu?

you have a V6 or 4? The Eibachs are 600lb coils, designed for heavy bumpers. I'll have mine installed this week on the Bilsteins, but I'm wearing a 125lb ARB front bumper and a 100 pound flat belly skid with a V6

Eibach are nice springs but finding them in the right length, diameter and coil weight will be the issue. OME or Tundra springs will more than likely be a better option.

i have a v6. i have a westin bar but it doesnt really matter. it weights 40lbs.

toytec offers the eibach coils in the correct length and diameter, right?
