    Toytec/Billistein coilovers, allpro leafs, OME greasable shackles, allpro ubolt flip kit, Billistein 5100's in rear.
    Okay, so I got my lift mostly all installed yesterday at work, only one problem. I bought the toytec/billistein coilovers http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=121&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72.

    Whenever i try adjust them (they are set at the bottom 1 1/2" lift) the top of the strut just starts poking out of the top plate until im able to freely move the washer and bushing up and down. If i disconnect my swaybar with this help? Im confused and cant turn corners... so if anyone has any ideas ill be glad to try them..

    Thanks!

    They forgot to put the washers and bushing on the strut below the top plate, i got a spring compressor and fixed it, glad i figured it out finally!
