Coilover opinions needed stat!

Long story short I have a 07" taco that had Donahoe Racing (now Icon) coilovers on it. I yanked them off and sent them to be rebuilt (100,000 miles) and Icon just called and they are junked.

My truck is on blocks, I am in a borrowed freaking mini-van and Uncle Sam just took a HUGE bite out of my cash flow on Monday. I need a complete set of coilovers yesterday and I need them cheap as possible.

What do all you fine posters of tacomaworld recommend? I saw some Toytec/Bilstein height adjustable for $599 are those any good or does anyone have a better/cheaper solution?

Thanks for the help! Cheers!

Order a set of spacers until you find something you like.

Sorry, should have mentioned that the stock suspension is long gone and I need the lift to accomodate the oversized tires.

I have some Icon's in stock, and can get some 5100's out to you as well. I can have the 5100's leave Friday. Were getting our shipment Friday morning.

Going from a good Coil over back to a 5100 will be noticable. Best would be to go with an icon or something with that 2.5" shock your used to.

Buying something cheaper now doesn't mean buying something more expensive later, it just means years of me bitching about it!

I have some second gen billy 5100 adjustables- extended no questions asked warranty (4w parts) with stock coils I need to get rid of. Also have a spacer about 4". Have to measure what it is if your interested I'd let em go for $250+ shipping. I could even send the bilsteins back under warranty and have them send you some brand spankin new ones.
