    Thread tools at the top right of the post, there is a drop down menu with a poll option.

    Of those 3, if you got the coin, get icon.

    yea i threw the icon package in bcuz it was close in price to the other 2 kits but when you add the aal its a solid 1400 bucks..little pricey for me...unless its far superior to the other two kits in the poll im leaning towards one of the cheaper ones..is it THAT much better?

    then i would avoid the eibachs/billy setup. i have my eibachs at the middle setting, which they state is 3+", but at this point it still sits nose heavy.

    It is the full kit, minus longer U-bolts.

    I got the coilovers built by Toytec, and did the install of everything myself.

    There are many 5% off coupons online. Just google Toytec coupon codes.

    Total comes to $834 for the full kit, with Coilovers built before any discount

    5% off = $790

    I got a local spring store to bend up U-bolts for $10.

    So yes, I was wrong on my guess by $20.
    Still significantly cheaper than any above setup.

    I agree, but the above kits he asked about are also with AAL or blocks.

    Comparing apples to apples, OME is the cheapest.
