    Hey guys,

    I have 5100s all around, front at 1.75 ans TSB leafs.

    Sure my future plan is Icons/King extended coilovers BUT I soon want 285s and I need a bit more lift. Eibach and AAL are mid travel lift I'm aiming for till then.

    There is the Adjustable Coilover kit from Toytec that will make my 5100s coilovers, BUT the springs alone are lest than half the price of the kit!($150 vs $370)

    With what seems the only difference that they're adjustable for perfect tuning. (The adjustable say up to 3" lift tho?) But the 5100s already have the .85 setting to achieve the slight adjustment I'd need right?

    Is it worth to make them adjustable coilovers?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    Nope buy real CO's the adjustments on the Toytec ones are not that great. Just save your money and buy real Coil overs.

    I see... then I'd just get the springs then. Well for Eibach Springs and AAL that'd be around $260 shipped.

    Add some wheel spacers for my Sport wheels that'd I'd need for 285s thatd be about $460 total. Plus the $1k for BFG All terrains. :eek:

    dont waste your money on anything with "toytec" in the name...

    do it right the first time, it's cheaper. keep saving for the icon or king CO's

    Yeah just get the springs you don't need that sleeve with threads. 1460 is no too bad for all of that.
