buying used coilover

so im thinking of buying some used eibach coilovers for my tacoma. its the old toytec ones that were silver. so my question is what will i need to buy in order to make them work. cause im just getting the coil and the collar i guess is what its called, the thing on the bottom that you crank up with the spanner wrench. can i use the same top plate i got on my stock setup? then do i need any "gaskets" idk what they are but when you look at the picture on toytec of their coilover, there are these silver gasket type looking things.

also do you think its a good deal for a couple hundred?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

If you already are running the 5100 shocks, then all you will need is a spanner wrench.

You may be able to swing a deal with Downsouth, or Toytec on a new set for the same price.
