    He has the link for the Radflo coilovers not the Toytec coilovers... So Im asuming you are thinking about getting the Radflo ULK....

    If so I would reccomend the OME kit, or If you get the Radflo's, I wouldnt run them at 3" lift unless you get 1/4" top spacers. Bc when I had my Radflos at 3" lift, they rode stiff and I had barely any down travel, and I also would top out over speed bumps, and it would top out hard!

    So just some advise, go with OME, OR, get a 1/4" top plate spacer for the Radflo's... :)

    I put the front half of my Toytec ULK in 2 weekends ago, let the truck sit and finally finished it today, looks awesome, rides awesome... no vibes at all, i have the axle shims in but not the diff drop, and have yet to have it aligned.....
    IMO defiantely worth the money, if the ride changed, its for the better, and it handles awesome!

    He has the Radflo ULK posted not the Toytec coilovers.....

    The nice thing about the Radflo's are they're rebuildable, so that a plus, oh! and there adjustable....

    Im not set on the Radflo's and will probably go with just the toytec ultimate they are the same price and it sounds like this is the way to go thanks to everyone who responded.

    I just installed the ultimate lift in my 2011 4X4 doublecab tacoma yesterday with the help of my dad and brother. Love the way it looks. Makes the stock tires look too small for the truck. Need to put some bigger ones on. Also installed an ARB bull bar the same day.

    Truck is starting to look sick!!

    Do you actually intend to make adjustments after installing the front shocks? If not, get the OMEs. Toytec basically put a threaded collar around standard Bilstein 5100 shocks to make coilovers. Bilstein 5100s are not as sturdy as the OME shocks.
