Toytec, Wheelers, or Downsouth

I am about to drop a wad of cash on a lift and would like some opinions on which company to deal with. I haven't used any of these yet but will in the future. Before i spend 1500 or more would like to get the good and bad on these companies. Thanks for the help!

Go home if you don't like guns liquor and whores.

I've had good experiences with Wheelers. They usually will knock a bit off the top too if you mention you're from TW and ask nicely. Not always but sometimes.

They knocked off a bit when I ordered damn near a full OME set up. I had some issues with an AAL and they took care of all of it on their dime, even shipping.

Also, free shipping and free first re-valve of the shocks if you're not happy with them. The other 2 companies are great and never had any issue's but this day and age you might as well get all you can and support the one's going the extra mile for you and DSM does that! GREAT company right there!

I have had great experiences with all 3 but for larger suspension orders, I'd go with DSM just because of the savings on shipping.

Yea all are good, but dsm gets my vote. I've spent a lot of money with them and they always help me out. Even after hours on weekends I've still gotten calls back.

They're all vendors so that makes it even tougher but I did update my last post with a little more. Don't have any experience with DSM or Toytec but I've heard good things prior to this thread about both of em.

Only bought from Wheeler's (twice) and DSM (once)...I recommend either or. Depends on who has it in stock. Both got my business and will again soon.

Both DSM and Wheelers have excellent customer service. I've not purchased from Toytec before.

It is really unusual to have 3 different companies and everyone have positive remarks of all them. Just goes to show these companies appreciate their customers. That is something you dont see much anymore.

I've had excellent service with ToyTec & DSM, can't go wrong with either. I haven't ordered from wheelers but I'm sure they are stand up guys.
