Titan swap coilovers

Ok so I have a quick question about the extended coilovers needed for a titan swap. If people know parts and if u don't know don't comment the difference in a strut and shock is the spring is just around the shock and mounted around the shock making it a strut instead of it having shocks and then a separate spring like in the rear. My question is if I can find just the extended SHOCKS for the front for a titan swap the extended travel, will the stock spring be enough or would I have to go ahead and buy the extended shock with the spring around it. Again if I buy just the extended shocks for the front for a titan swap will the stock spring work or is it better to go ahead and buy it all put together. I do realize u have to have the spring compresses not an issue there just tryna save 600+ bucks when there is no need to. Any advice helps thanks

Have a read through these: This prices out at about $300-400 all said and done an is the cheapest way to get max travel out of t swap

As far as what you want to do (use a longer shock to get more travel), that is basically what the Tundra coilovers do. Trust me I looked for a long time for a shock that was the right size for a T swap, the Tundra shocks are the best fit out there. You can NOT use the factory spring due to a difference in the pig tail end diameter of the spring. You must use a toyota spring or buy the Nissan lower spring perch from Bilstein to use on tundra 5100s (don't recommend this as the factory spring is way to light).
