The front is a combination of a coil spacer and a top plate spacer.

The rear looks to be a small block I think....it's hard to see.

How many leafs do you have in the back?

Don't the toytec ones have "toytec" engraved around them?

Either way, what they both said.
Top plate/coil spacer with either a small block or axle shim


Btw OP, I chuckled at your name

Yeah I couldn't tell if it was a shim or a small block.

What rear shocks are those?

I don't recall Dave's having it on them when I pulled his off, so...........


I'd be inclined to agree with the KYB also.

All the toytec spacers I've seen have toytec engraved on them.

Anyways it's not important. No one hunk of metal jammed into a coil assembly is better than another....

It's "ok". There are better options out there. Biily's and Eibachs or an OEM set up will give you a better ride.

No not really. It's about the worst type of lift there is actually.

That coil spacer with the stock shocks is going to give you a much harder ride than a nicer setup.

And the top plate spacer allows your lcas to pivot too far down at full droop, which can lead to ball joint damage.

Though it's not recommended by many on the site, as long as you don't do any heavy off roading you will be fine.

I don't see any problems with the rear, the spacers up front are what is mostly frowned upon.
