5100 or 4600
I posted this on another forum with no responses. Hopefully, I'll get some here.
I just spent several hours searching through suspension posts trying to find the answer I'm looking for.
I'm upgrading my 2013 TRD CM to a sport truck vice the off-road package it came with. Reason being, I want it to optimize the truck to excel in the environment it sees the most, dry/wet/snow asphalt. I want to keep stock height and if that changes it would go lower. I want to keep the rake because of towing and hauling. Off-road in my neck of the woods is more logging trails and bogs.
Right now I have TRD F/R swaybar. I just installed the front and it really makes it fun to drive. It corners flat and just sticks on a good flat surface. Upgraded pads and rotors are on the way.
After reading forums, retailers descriptions and manufacturer descriptions, I'm leaning towards 5100s and willing to accept the .87 lift in the front.
I understand it's still a stiff ride but more controlled.
Like some opinions and alternatives, if any. Thanks.
