My 06 Titan SE (2wd) is getting a bit rough driving. I ordered 5100s for the front and rear and MOOG (81200) coils.

I've been reading a lot and I'm not sure what setting I should have my front shocks at. My truck is stock, aside from aftermarket 18" wheels ant Nitto Trail Grapplers. No lift. I forget my tire size (too lazy to run out and look), but they are pretty close to stock tire size, but a bit wider.

Pretty much all the other threads seem to mention 08 4x4 or MOOG 81194 coils.

I don't do a whole lot of off-road driving. Every now and then, mostly when deer season is open (it gets kinda muddy, hence the MTs).

I'd like a comfortable setting, and maybe level the front out some. Unsure of the best course of action.

Those are 04-07 2wd replacement coils. Should be the same spring rate that you currently have. Which is fine, because being new they will be stiffer than your old springs.

You could probably run the top notch on the 5100s for max available height for your set up. Might be a stiff ride, not sure with 2wd coils.

I use the middle setting with 5100s and 08+ 4x4 Moog coils which gave me about 3.5" compared to my stock shocks on my 05 2wd.

Yeah. It already feels kinda stiff with my stock shocks. 190k miles and small pot holes or even small bumps or changes in pavement gives me a pretty decent jolt and I hate it.
I may try the middle setting, but I just haven't heard much about the 81200 or even stock coils for the 5100.

Im sure a lot of fellas just replace the strut. Either way they will ride much better than your worn out struts.
