Any opinions of Fabtech coilover kit

I am looking to replace my factory shocks. I was originally going to go with the Biltein 5100s and some new coils. I stumbled on to a Fabtech coilover kit that was in the same price range.

I am not looking for a huge lift but like the adjustability this kit has-in case I want to lift it a little later.

Any opinions? It is the Fabtech FTS2300K kit for a 1995 Tacoma 4X4.

depending how high you want to go. i would not crank these things all the way because your axle angles get really steep and you end up trashing axles really fast. i was having to replace mine every few months untill i lowered them. if you plan on going the full 3.5 then i'd suggest finding a drop bracket lift. also these things ride very very stiff on my truck and i think i have them cranked to 3.

so how high are you thinking you want to go?

^^^ the pic you have there is the fabtech basic CO lift... and it's junk. a downgrade from stock

you'd be better off going w/ some 5100's or an OME lift

the only fabtech CO worth anything is their dirt logic series... and there's much better out there than that

Ok I guess I will scratch the fabtechs from the list. Now on to find out what coils work best with the bilsteins.
