Thread tools at the top right of the post, there is a drop down menu with a poll option.

Of those 3, if you got the coin, get icon.

I would go OME over the bilstein setup, and its just as cheap.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

It is the full kit, minus longer U-bolts.

I got the coilovers built by Toytec, and did the install of everything myself.

There are many 5% off coupons online. Just google Toytec coupon codes.

Total comes to $834 for the full kit, with Coilovers built before any discount

5% off = $790

I got a local spring store to bend up U-bolts for $10.

So yes, I was wrong on my guess by $20.
Still significantly cheaper than any above setup.
