I have an '02 Tundra (215K) that has never had any suspension component replaced.
Next week my mechanic is replacing front springs, struts and associated hardware, e.g. mounting brackets, etc...
In the back shocks are being replaced.
I'm also having the brakes done (front - PowerStop rotors and pads / rear- Beck Arnley Brake drums and shoes).
My quandary concerns the front suspension. I am looking at the Monroe Quick Strut replacement. I am strictly a street guy with most of my driving being highway.
The alternatives are: buy the quick strut and use a KYB or Bilstein 5100 strut rather than the Monroe product at least that way I get all the new components in one easy package.
Or, buy an OEM coil spring and either KYB or Bilstein 5100 strut but now have to purchase all the extras required to do a good replacement job. Also, is the Monroe Coil Spring a decent spring considering my driving habits?
For the rear probably a KYB or Bilstein 5100 replacement.
Not looking to 'lift' the truck. Just want to stay stock. From what I've read the Bilstein 5100 will work for that.
Any thoughts and or comments greatly appreciated.
