Need some input on my suspension...

Ok so i currently have the pro comp pro runner Ss on the front of my truck at 2.5" of lift and the stock trd bilstein 4600s on the rear end of my truck with Toytec shackles.. I have looked at just about every suspension option out there and while i really like the Bilstein 6112/5160 setup im just not so sure i can justify the cost for what i do. I have read of a few people having trouble with the pro comps at the 2 year mark or so like they start squealing and leaking. So my dilemma is do i just buy the pro comp rears to match my truck and be done. Or do i order up 5100s all around and be done then sale the pro comp fronts to make up for the loss. I had 5100s on my tacoma and loved them. I also have a set of coachbuilder shims just sitting in my garage. So i could install the 5100s mid setting and do 2 shims on each side. Or maybe add a shim to each side of the pro comps. Anyway lets hear you guys opinion im just not sure what to do from here.

I did 5100's all the way around. Top position and 1 shim each side, Coachbuilder shackles in the rear. Love the ride, much smoother than stock and didn't kill my wallet.

how have you liked the procomps? I have all 4 to be installed with new tires but im debating what tire size to go with..I leaning towards a 34" if they allow for enough clearance? would you be able to geta measurement on your front and rear wheel wells with your current setup by chance? Thank you!

The Bilstein 6112/5160 is a sexy set up for sure. But the 5100s are the best replacement style shock out there they are amazing. We have fitted many trucks in different flavors and the 5100s make a night and day difference

I dunno man, I think the tire height looks great on your truck, they just look a tad narrow. 295/65R18 Duratracs would be perfect.

If you're happy with the ride and lift height, I'd just get new tires like you're wanting. Then if/when the ProComps start making noise, swap them out for something different.

I really dont have a problem with the ride of the pro comps just worried about future trouble. I may just throw a matching set of pro comps on the rear and get my new tires. These ko2's are almost worn out anyway. I think im going with 295/70r18 ridge grapplers!

Already know they'll look sweet so I look forward to your impressions on performance with them compared to the BFGs.
