I Installed Bilstein 6112s on my '18. Highest setting gave a perfect 2.5" level, and the spring/2.5" damper are perfectly matched for a great on/off road compromise ride. I've bought may last set of Toytechs after experiencing poor product and service. I received the wrong spring rate for my '04 Tacoma, so the springs were bowing in, nearly rubbing the shock body, as well as riding really harsh to to the excessive preload needed to set a 2.5" lift. The owner was not only clueless (or pretended to be), but unpleasant to deal with. Finally had to sort it out myself. If that weren't enough, Toytech has since stopped using Bilstein dampers, and now uses a no doubt cheaper and less reliable in house "Boss" branded damper. Given the decades of excellent trouble free performance I've had with Bilstein suspension on both on and off-road trucks and motorcycles, there's absolutely no reason to go Toytect since Bilstein is now offering their own coilovers. You can even find some vendors that will assemble the COs for you if you prefer not to use a spring compressor. I installed these COs myself, as always. Trying to shortcut by not un-bolting the lower ball joint and sway bar frame brackets/end links was a waste of time for me.
