Anyone on a budget, or who isn't going to be really flogging their truck off-road, probably doesn't need a full-fledged coilover kit with adjustable remote reservoirs, laser beams, and built-in saunas. While powerful (and expensive) hardware is all well and good, there's plenty of situations where those kits are bit (or even extreme) overkill. For street trucks that do more towing, highway driving, and maybe some lighter-duty off-roading, your best choices are going to be leveling shock systems like the Bilstein 5100s, Rancho quickLifts, and Pro Comp Pro Runner Kits. All of these systems provide some extra front lift and improved suspension performance without wrecking street ride quality or breaking your bank. Rancho's QuickLift series is probably the most versatile and features adjustable compression settings to help dial in your ride. The Pro Comp Pro Runners are fairly inexpensive shocks that give you some extra performance thanks to is mono-tube, aluminum-body design. The most popular options for these trucks are the Bilstein 5100 series that have three settings for ride height are tough enough for light off-road use without being too harsh on the street.
On to coilovers, and we have a lot of choices. We'll ignore kits for the time being, and just focus on the coilovers themselves. Coilovers are basically the "top dogs" when it comes to off-road performance, and there's several options depending on just what type of off-roading you're in to. Standard coilovers like the FOX 2.0s or the F150Lifts Bilstein Coilover systems can handle most moderate trail riding without issue while giving you taller ride height. Even better performance, response, articulation, and fade resistance can be found with 2.5 coilovers from Fox or ICON. With a larger diameter and more impressive spring than more standard 2.0 coilovers, these 2.5 coilovers are a great choice for aggressive off-roading, especially when paired with performance rear shocks, rear blocks, or upper control arms. Finally, there's the reservoir coilover kits from ICON, Camburg, and Fox which offer even better off-road performance. The reservoirs attached to these coilovers hold more oil to reduce fade, provide better response, and give your truck the ultimate off-road performance setup.
