I need some help deciding which Bilstein setup to buy. I have a really good deal on the table thru a friend. Both options are at a really large discount...

8112/8100s
OR
6112/5160s

I can get the whole 6112 setup, for the price for one of the 8812s. However, the 8112 setup is still at a huge discount. I have a 2WD TRD Sport and plan on doing some camping and "light" offloading with the family (my youngest hates "truck driving" lol). With the money I save, I can do wheels/tires and all that.

Still doing research on the differences between both options but just looking for some help on the topic.

I honestly think this one is just gonna be about how badass/overkill you wanna be. The 6112 are gonna be great and you probably wouldn’t think you’d need something more once you have them. But the 8112 would be even better for ever faster and harder 2wd desert running. So it’s really up to you cause you can’t go wrong here.

Which one did you choose? Can't really go wrong with either. Depends on your style of Off-Roading.

I ordered the 6112, 5160 combo myself, still waiting, been three weeks, still no parts.
