Which shocks with TRD front springs/maybe OME rear or PP rear springs

Well I am now a contributing member, so here's my first pole.
I need some struts/shocks for the Runner. I will be using some Tundra front springs and maybe OME 890 rears...I only want 2" lift because I have 32's. Front shocks will be the Billy HD's. The decision for the rear is between the Billy HD's, 5125 or 5150. I would like to get a little more travel out of the rear if it is practical with a 2" spring.

What I am going to use the shocks for
-Daily driven
-Slow rocky trails & dirt trails
-Occasional washboard roads, the one I hit most often is like 13 miles and rattles me with the stock setup.

Post up why you chose the shock you did please. I have done some searching for these shocks and haven't found anyone running the 5125 or 5150 on 3rd gens...is that because they aren't compatible?

It's cool, I knew where you were coming from, but with a title like "Hey! Vote in my poll!" it's not gonna get you many folks lookin' anyway.

you might search for front lift or front shocks there are numerous threads on front shocks and tundra coils...

/f2/3rd-gen-tacoma-front-lift-rollcall-47108/

not to mention the mother of all threads that discusses shock options throughout including Bilstiens...
http://www.yotatech.com/showthread.p...ra+coil+shocks

With that said I have the Tundra coils and Tokico Trekmaster (green) shocks and I really do like the ride. I am a little concerned about the lack of droop with the shocks but I guess that is a good thing to keep the CV angles from getting too severe in extreme articulation. But I've only had them on for 2 weeks and only onroad so far but the onroad characterisics are good.

I have read those threads, I am really looking for info on anyone who has run the 5125 or 5150 with a 3rd gen. I found everything else I wanted to know except for the rear setup on the 25's and 50's, I find guys with 1st and 2nd gens running them, but no luck on 3rd gen searches. I think I will run the HD's in the front either way, but I wanted an educated opinion on the 25's and 50's on 3rd gens.

My bad - you're asking about rear shocks - I thought it was for the front.

I've got the Y/B HD billies up front with the tundra coils, and the ride is a bit on the stiff side. I don't mind it too much, but you definitely feel the bumps on the road.

On a different note, my CV's did not droop a whole lot, not to the point where grease is leaking or the angle is drastically different.

In the rear I have the OME 890's and tokico trekmaster's, they are smooth!
