    Hey guys,
    I am going with 5100's all the way around with an AAL, or possibly 5125's in the rear with an AAL. I can't decide if I should get the toy tec coilover's for the front or just use the stock coils. If I use stock coils i can get all 4 5100's from ebay for $279. If i decide to get the toytec coilover It is $799 just for the front. Any thoughts? Do you know if ToyTec is selling just the coilover conversion with out the front shocks installed? That way I could get the shocks for cheaper and just get the coilover assembled somewhere else. Maybe the cost to assemble would be more than just purchasing them from toytec already assembled? I don't know.

    Any Idea how much I could expect to pay for someone to assemble them on my 5100's?

    Are you getting the 5100's for the rear or 5125's? Since I am getting an AAL that will raise the rear 2" I am leaning toward the 5125's since they are 2" longer but I am ignorant and don't know if that will make any difference.

    I have all 4 5100's. At 2" lift in the back the 5125's would have more down travel. You'd be fine either way. For peace of mind I'd go w/the 5125's. I went up only1".:)

    if you are cool with a local tire/mechanic shop.....see if they will swap them out for you....take them the coils and let them do it with a spring compressor...........i got the local place here, which im friends with everyone there for, to do them for $30...........and i tipped them $10 for being cool about it.

    nah....just unbolt the 3 bolts at the top of the coil.....leave the shock bolt alone, do not loosen it, and unbolt the bottom bolt, and thw complete coil/shock combo will come out in one piece. just make sure that, on the 5100's, you set the clip to the height you want it on both shocks...............and be sure to remember which coil goes on the driver side...it does make a difference. then you shall be set.
