    all spacer lifts in general are crap. they are the cheapest way to lift the truck and are a down grade from stock.

    toytec "coilovers" are just bili 5100 shocks with a threaded body and an eibach spring and collar. no R+D went into making the shock, they just slap the parts together and over charge you for it.

    new leaf pack are going to run you at least $400

    nope he had the right one. Those "coilovers" are basically an overpriced version of just getting 5100's and eibachs.

    I think you have to get them at the dealer. If you need new plates I would just go with the assembled coilovers from wheelers. It will be about the same price and much easier.

    trust me bro. i know what i'm talking about, i got the right one.

    if you were to buy 5100's and eibach springs, you wont have the collar portion of the toytec coilover, but you dont really need that anyways, plus the eibach springs are not designed to be compressed a ton anyways... that why everybody who runs the toytec BS says the shocks ride way too stiff.

    a shop should charge you about $100 tops to install the new stuff up front. it's a simple take out old parts, put new ones in. if they charge much more than that they are ripping you off
