I dont think you can go wrong with either of those. I personally run the Toytec Superflex coils and Bilstein shocks in the rear.

No problem, and I'm running the 5100s.

David, the rear Icon VS series 2.0 aluminum body are great! Major improvement over stock.. not even camparable to stock. The 4Runner rides like a race truck now. They ride very nice and can handle extra weight. They have complimented my rear OW coils quite well. The specs on my OW coils are 30 % weight increase over stock and the ride is smooth and very controlled. These are also 3" taller then stock coils. The Icon coils will be similar but a tad firmer and about 2"-2.5" lift

Hope that helps

I'm running the Toytec Superflex springs with the Icon 2.0 shocks linked above. Great combination for my truck. Great ride on road, great control off and I use pretty much all the shock travel both ways. Brake dive decreased, cornering stability increased and the ride is much less harsh, both on road and off.
