Difference between two of your kits

Toytec,

I've recently seen folks asking folks opinions on this kit below:

3" lift kit with Bilstein 5100 Height adjustable Coilovers

Just for my information, and to help answer others questions when they pop up, can you tell me what the difference is between the above kit and this one:
Bilstein Adjustable lift kit with 5100 shocks

I see that both come with the same coils and shocks. The only difference that I see is that the one that's $170 more comes pre-assembled, and with a spaced top-mount to achieve 3" of overall lift. Am I missing any other differences? Thank you.

I think that's it. But with the adjustable shocks and coil I am not sure you need the spacer. But I guess toytec knows more than I

Well that's another place where I'm confused.

In the second kit it says "3 inch average lift is achieved with coils and setting the shock adjustment on the second C clip setting from the bottom", which is 0.85" of lift. Pair that with the 620# eibach coils, which provide 1.6" of lift as noted here:
http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72
0.85 + 1.6 = 2.45", so that doesn't add up.

The first kit says it comes pre-assembled to achieve 3" of lift, which I assumed was Bilsteins at 0.85, 1.6" lift coils, and a 1/2" spacer at the top of the assembly. 0.85 + 1.6 + 0.5 = 2.95"

So I'm not adding something up correctly here.

The pre-assembled lift comes with a thicker top plate to put you at a true 3" of lift. It's got the standard 5100's set at .85, Eibach coils and Toytec's thicker top plate.

The non-preassembled kit uses the same 5100's, you get to choose the setting and re-use your old top plate. With this set-up, even with the 5100's at .85, you'll end up shy of 3" (despite what their website says).

The difference between the 2 kits is the thicker white top plate (and assembly).

That's what I was seeing as well I just figured I was missing something due to the fairly large price difference between the two.

Well, two differences I guess, using your own top plates vs. getting new ones. Then the labor to pre-assemble the parts.

The top plates and top spring rubber are not that cheap. Then add the labor for those who do not have the ability and it is a fair deal.

I thought about it but am a cheap fucker so will be doing it myself and only want them set to 0 for the lowest 1.6 lift.

You can get the other set assembled by toytec for 100.00 extra charge. the preassembled kit also comes with axle shims as well. The preassembled kit will be 2.25 or 3" lift (just specify if u want the 5100's set 0 or .85)....the un-assembled kit can be 1.6(set 0),2.4(set .85), or 3"(set .85 w/ tp spacers) depending on what you order. I have called toytec and this is what they said

You guys have got it pretty much figured out.

The TTHA-CK kit already comes assembled with the ToyTec aluminium top mounts, axle shims, and U bolts.

The cost for the parts separately is

$200 for the top mounts
$39.99 for the U bolts
$29.99 for the shims

Add that to the BK0510 which is 629.99 and you get 899.97 so we are throwing in the assembly labor for free (or 3 cents if you want to be specific ).

If you want it to come assembled, yes.

I did on mine, different kit but it was a lot easier to install by just bolting parts on rather that disassembling parts to get the ones you need to assemble your new parts.

hey fellas,
What does it mean when you set the 5100's at .85? What does the .85 represent? Thanks all!
Doing lots of research so I can lift my truck
