Bilstein is the way to go! Made for your vehicle, and awesome for both road and dirt!
5.0No regrets, very pleased!
Best upgrade you can do staying under 3 inch lift. They are over built and soften up when you get the speed up in the rough open roads. My truck has been airborne with these and handled it like a champ. The exceeded my expectations!

5.0Good bang for the buck.
First ride first impression is great on this setup used on 2001 4Runner as of 6-1-20.
Plate bumper and winch added 161 lbs to front of Runner, lift set at 3”. Ride and articulation make for a good setup.
5.0Combine with 5160 & Shackles for Best 3/2 lift
Perfect price point between expensive Kings and junk Spacers. I used it with CB shims to get 3” lift in the front of my Tundra. Combined it with Bilstein 5160 and Coach Builder shackles in the rear .... for 2” lift in the back.
Trucks sits perfect! Almost looks level but actually has 1” rake for the safety system.
Was able to put 33’s tires on 18” rims with +12 offset (for Tundra it’s about 1.8” of poke from wheel wells)... with only minor plastic trimming.

5.0Worth every penny
These shocks totally change the look of any truck and are perfect for someone who isn’t looking into getting something crazy like a whole bypass setup.
5.0Plush, yet stable
Very nice riding suspension, plenty of height options depending on your application, easy install, no maintenance. My 4Runner feels incredibly stable on road and floats over everything I’ve thrown at it off-road, it just eats up the ruts, rocks and bumps. BIG upgrade over my previous setup, 5100’s with factory coils.
Does this reuse factory parts or does it come complete ?

The Bilstein B8 6112 Suspension Leveling Kit does require use of some original factory parts. The top spring mount is re-used with the new shocks and coil springs included with this kit.
Here is a link to the instructions for this kit that will explain further.
The instructions will also be available on our website very soon
How much lift will this provide? Only looking for maybe an inch or two

This Bilstein 6112 Series Lift Kit has ride height adjustable shocks. There are 4 grooves on the body of the shock that you can adjust a snap ring to and then the spring seat will be at that level.
Bilstein says that the range is from 0-2.75 inches of lift.
If you check out these instructions it shows the levels
