    Toytec, I have a question on this lift kit. What is the spring rate for the coilovers that come with the kit and are there other spring rates if you need stiffer?

    Also if you or anyone here knows, what spring rate comes with the basic coilovers on the tundra. Ive got an sr5 package on my crewmax if that makes a difference.

    It's possible I make or buy plate bumpers in the future, so I want to make sure my lift will handle it if I decide to do that.

    Thanks!

    I am interested in the answer to this as well. Stuck between the OME and Bilsteins. (Btw Dylan doesn't work their anymore)

    That and fat bobs. I really like the idea of having the 4 bilsteins though and coilovers.

    Hi guys. Sorry for the late reply.
    Our Ultimate kit has a 700lb coil. We do not have a stiffer coil than the 700, however I haven't seen a Tundra that needed a heavier coil rate than that. I believe that the stock coils are either a 550lb or 600lb coil.
    I hope this helps.

    Thanks Miles! yes it absolutely helps. I was hoping the rate was 700 and will definitely be going with this set up.

    Are the Ultimate Bilsteins that much better than the OME? Or is the main difference just adjust ability?

    Well I emailed and pm'd toytec and no answer. Guess I'll call Monday. But maybe you guys know. Can you get reservoirs on these coilovers and the rear shocks? The bilstein coilovers on the trd pro are supposed to have them so it got me wondering. For 2k I can get kings on all four corners, 700 pound springs and custom valved. So I'm trying to decide if it's worth the extra 800 dollars vs the ultimate lift kit. I bought shackles that give 1.5-1.75 rear lift and poly bushings for the rear springs and half inch shims for the front. I plan on keeping the coilovers at three inches and adding the shims for a total of 3.5 in the front. I didn't want to crank the coilovers all the way so I could keep a decent ride. So now I just have to decide on which coilovers and shocks to go with.

    I thought they were normally too... but I think something might be going on with them. Backorder on bilstein... you know they recently changed up the 5100s to be a machined shaft instead of welded. So maybe that has caused trouble. But man I'd just like to know humans are still at the helm...!

    I'm sure Sean266 will get you hooked up but if something falls through just buy the full OME set and never look back you'll be happy with it.

    Hi all, had the toytec ultimate lift since my truck was about 1000kms, august 2011, front and rear are leaking bad now, have been weeping since very early on.
    Hope i can get to them and see if i can replace the strut itself and reuse all the nice machined aluminium parts and coils..

    60,000 miles is pretty normal, if not overdue for service/replacement. Non rebuildable shocks we recommend changing every 40k-50k miles. Rebuildable shocks we recommend every 40k. Thats just street driving, any offroading and we would have you service/replace them even sooner

    I don't have any knowledge on that kit as that is not something I carry. Maybe one of the other forum members that have this kit can chime in.

    I was just trying to provide some basic shock maintenance info
