Not sure which Coil over

Im not off roading everyday, but on occasion i do and have to stop touching dirt with my spacer lift, since its not an everyday thing and i dont have money for kings, which one do you guys recommend? oh and they would be set at either 2.5" or 3" with AAL in the back and 5100s in the rear also

I'd get the first one. The second type with the threaded collar requires you to re-use your existing top plate, which may be worn and sloppy, and requires a spring compressor.

I have the 2nd one and needed a spring compressor to install. You'll like the first, it's all ready to go.......and that's a good price!

I really like them! Wish I had an extended travel coilover for the type of wheeling I do, but these are really smooth offroad! The valving is pretty damn good for these trucks and on road is pretty good as well. Firmer than stock but I had a spacer on so these are waaaaay better! I think they are as good as you get with out getting a full racing style coilover. They are maintenance free as well so once they are on nothing else to think about. Toytec has a lifetime warranty!

That seals the deal, thanks man I'm definetaly getting these once I get the money, most of my off roading like 30-40 mph over braking bumps, pot homes and small dips, it sounds like these will handle that perfectly, but do you think if they are set at 3" will I have ball joint issues?
