Toytec Ultimate kit vs. Eibach kit

What's the difference, other than the cost and minor nuts and bolts, between the Toytec Ultimate lift kit and the Eibach lift kit (both come with the 5100's)? Does the Ultimate kit offer more height? I'm deciding between the two and considering one is almost twice the cost of the other, I would like to know what the Ultimate lift kit offers over the Eibach kit.

The ultimate kit has an adjustable collar so you can play with your ride height more, and offers 3" of lift or a bit more. The eibach one is a 5100, and an eibach 1.6" lift spring, and you can run the 5100's at the 0 setting and get 1.6" of lift, or bump it to the 0.85 setting and get about 2.5" of lift. You can't go any higher then the 0.85 setting with the eibach spring though or else your compressing the spring too much. I run the 5100's with the spring at the 0.85 setting and have just a bit over 2.5" on my d-cab short box 4x4. Rides excellent. I also just bought the 5100's from Down South Motorsports for $283, and then just purchased the spring seperate from Toytec...saved me about $100. Hope this helps.

If I go with the Ultimate Lift and set it at 3", will I need to go with new UCA's to deal with the new suspension geometry? I don't have the money right now for UCA's, so I'm thinking maybe I can get the Ultimate kit and set it lower? Maybe 2"?

If you go through Toytec and order a UCA with the Ultimate lift kit, I believe they will give you a bit of a discount on the UCA. Call and ask them if they are still doing that. They were a month or so ago.
