$429. That and the struts from DownSouth motorsports were about $200 cheaper than buying the assembled ones up top for $799.

So, if that is just the spacer that I don't need, what piece comprises the other end of the spring to keep it compressed?

No the c clip are on the shock in that pic and the round plate are what the spring sit on. If your going to use what toytec sent then you shouldn't need the bilstein plates.

The c-clip goes on the bottom setting.You do use the plate.The ToyTec collars sit on that.In regards to the top pic,it's not a spacer.It just looks better then the stock coil assembly top.(Double check w/Neubes.)

So, to be clear, I don't have to use the coil assembly top off my truck to assemble the new strut and coil or do I?

Install it yourself? Take the spring/shock to a place with a spring compressor and have them put it together for ya. SHould cost about $20.00 per side. Then take it home and re install.

Side note - is "assembly top" the right term for it?
You can buy it from the Toyota dealer. Its a Top plate with the studs. From the dealer, its probably $50.00 per side. Not sure where else you can get them.
