Question front springs that fit 2014 ultimate edition

Anyone know or try to see what other front springs fit the 2014 ultimate edition bilstien shocks (that are similar to trd pro tacoma/4 runner) other than TRd springs that came with it.
wanting to install winch and bumper, but wanting to change to heavier spring to get some height and keep the ultimate bilstien 6112/5160 shock setup.
Trd the spring that comes with that setup is flat at the bottom to fit the bottom spring mount/ sleeve, other coils like ironman , maybe arb have spiral endthat wont sit flat on the bottom mount!!

Re: front springs that fit 2014 ultimate edition

The TTUE shocks are Bilstein 6112's with different stickers. Stock spring rate is 600lbs. If you add any weight you will at least want 650lbs. Or 700lbs like me.

Any of the basic 2.5" coilover coils will work.

Also here:

Thanks iconic, great info to have. I have ironman constant load C springs in the back with my 5160 bilstiens and want to put ironman bumper/bullbar, warn zeon winch already have dual battery setup, Do you think 700lbs front eibach spring should be enough as am easily adding 250 lbs up front.
Can I get ironman constant load C springs( already have those) for the front and just grind the spring end a bit to make it flat and fit 6112s?
dunno if that is doable.

Re: front springs that fit 2014 ultimate edition

Yeah I would go 700 up front. Thats what I have with a heavy bumper, winch with synthetic line, and skids etc. It really does not ride that much stiffer from the 650 I had before. I just preload my coilovers less and I think it rides just as good but handles the weight better with the same lift amount.

Iconic's Partial To Blue Build

I dont think I would try to modify your springs to fit. The ones I linked to summit are the ones I would buy, but bumped up to the 700 lb rating.

The bilstein have a slighty more agressive tunning vs the TRD tuned billies. Spring rates remain the same. Info from my bilstein vendor rep.

Just go with the 700lb springs from wheelers. I still have the 600lbs on with a demello steel bumper and I could definitely use the 650lb at least

Re: front springs that fit 2014 ultimate edition

I am in the same boat! Just installed ARB Bumper(150lb) and XRC9 winch(83lb) on my 14 TTUE, so total is 233lb. I'm still not sure which route to go. Add a spacer? Or just replace the springs with adjustable ones if possible, or I have to replace the shocks and springs.

I found this: Adjustable Front Coil Over Kit for Bilstein Shocks 2010+, but they not compatible with 14 TTUE.

They not compatible bcuz the TTUE has TRD 2.5" coilovers. Its an eibach 600lb spring so just buy a 700lb spring and ur good to go
