    X2, I got mine locally from a jeep dealer (DPGOffroad) but, you'd make the difference up in shipping. Toytec, good folks to deal with.

    I bought from Wheeler's last week and had a good experience.

    There was a thread here from a guy price comparing, and TRDPartsForU may have had the lowest price.

    If you want the coils preassembled on the shocks, Toytech will do it for $100, which is cheaper than most places, so if you were planning on having someone else assemble them with new top plates and bushings, Toytech is definitely the best deal I've seen. If you were going to do it yourself for sure, then the advantage is a little less.

    Per shock, right? That's consistent with the pricing on their website. But some additional parts are required as well. I'd suggest calling them to confirm pricing.

    e.g. compare the price of their: TTAFCS-6005 vs. TCK-4 which differs only by stock top mounting plate not included, and labor. Kit price is different by $200.

    I suppose it would be worth a call to double check, but on their OME full kit for 1st Gens (OME-9504TAC), it says, "*****Order front shocks and coils fully assembled with new top mounting plates, bushings and washers for only$100.00!*****", and if you select the assembled option and add it to your cart, it only adds $100 to the price. I haven't purchased that kit from them yet, but it was the one I was planning on ordering, and the $100 assembly charge was part of the reason I was going to go with them.

    Can anyone confirm that it is indeed only $100 for assembly of both shocks?

    Wow! Ah - I see the difference. You're looking at the 95-04 stuff, and I'm looking at the 05+ stuff.

    Ahh, I suppose your right! Odd that there would be a difference - I figured it was mostly labor plus a few Toyota OEM parts. Oddly, there is still a $140 difference between the assembled and unassembled Toytec COs for the 1st Gens, even though the assembly cost is lower for the OME lift. Also, on the 2nd Gen OME lift, there isn't even an option for assembly shown!

    I suppose it is more complex than I thought!

    Trdparts4u.com has been able to beat anyone... including wheelers. I've have nothing but good things to say about Trdparts4u.com I've ordered from them on three separate occasions and they are always the cheapest.

    Compare what you're getting. at 950 to 699, I'm guessing you're comparing a kit that has Dakar springs in the back to one that has a Toytec "Add-A-Leaf."
