    I have the Bilstein 6112's at the top setting and love the ride and handling! I hear the Fox's are a step above as the King's are! I wanted a good medium at a greta cost and thats why I went with the 6112's.

    I also installed the Bilstein 5160's in the rear!

    Good luck!

    CO TJ is spot on, what is the main purpose for the vehicle, I'm a big fan of both. I have 6112's on my daily driver and absolutely love them but it's about 80% on road driving, I take it off road about once a month more frequently during hunting season. They do great off road but I don't go to extreme with this truck. I have Fox coilovers with remote resi and DSC on the company truck and those are really nice as well but on the road tend to be a little stiffer even with the adjustment capability the DSC gives. I am in the middle of a truck build that will be mainly an off-road vehicle and I am putting Fox's on. So really it's all about what your purpose of the truck the 6112's are very capable for most guys that do easy to moderate off roading at a decent price point.

    Hey Geno, I just got my 5160's installed last Friday they did not come with any bushings in the box. Did your?
    I called real truck who I bought them from and they called Bilstein both said to reuse the old ones. Problem is we did and the shock can roll left and right with just twisting it by hand. Help Lol

    They didn’t come with top bushings and Yes, I used the original ones that were on the truck, they were still pretty new! No problems here at all!

    10-4 Thank you Sir.
    I just spoke to Sparks parts and Bilstein they both told me I need to order TRD off road rear bushings. I have a TSS off Road Package apparently the rear bushings are different. I found out the hard way.... Thanks Bud

    It was the SPC UCA, got them from Toytec but after I installed the shocks I didn't raise the front end more then 2 1/2" so I felt I didn't need them! I bought a few things from Toytec and they are super folks!

    Thats strange, I have the an SR5 4x4 CM without any packages besides the SR5 upgrade. The shocks on mine were the basic black shocks, I have had zero problems with the stock bushings! The install directions even said use the stock bushings on the truck!

    Sorry brother, they took a return at Toytec! If I ever go higher I would defiantly go that route, they were solid UCA's!
