Revtek= bad idea
Toytec= ehh alright.
There both spacer lifts. Full suspension lifts are always better

I have the Toytec ultimate lift(with coilovers,and rear add a leaf). The coilovers are adjustable from stock height to 3 inchs of lift. They definitely have a smoother ride and handle better than stock. Putting the AAL in the rear stiffens that as well, which I like. I did replace the rear shocks that came with it to Bilstein 5150's.
I had the revTek spacer lift before and it was not the greatest. From what I have been told it weakens the lifespan of your u-joints. And the ride wasn't that great.
When I was buying my kit I was told you get what you pay for. In this situation it is very true.

I'm running toytec/eibach coils with bilstein 5100's, a 2" toytec AAL in the back and toytec's diff drop. Stiffer than stock, and I ended up getting about 3.3" of lift in the front- Had em for about 4 months and havent had any problems (besides 2 CV boot failures...)

If youre gonna lift, go for a good suspension lift, spacers are horrible. A friend of mine ran revtek spacers for awhile and the ride was horrible..

I just got the Toytec ULK for my truck and it rides good. Went with the front Eibach/Bilstein 5100 and the Dakar Leaf Pack for the rear with rear 5100's. Surprisingly no vibes (only a slight shudder from a stop). Might as well get a quality lift instead of spacers.

Should look at the toytec on craigslist, 1100. Comes with new uca's too. I was thinking about buying it, no money though... :-(
