    I was looking to get 3 inch Toytec Ultimate lift, but after shipping and brokerage fees[​IMG] I am now looking in Canada.
    Found these on Baja North: 2.0 Radflo adjustable coilovers, they are fully rebuildable and adjustable from 0-3" of lift. anybody have much experiance with these.(only three hits on search)
    Cost about the same
    A poll would be nice
    Thanks in advance
    Mike

    Did you get a price quote for shipping/duties/fees to your exact location from the office?

    From what I've heard the Radflo is nice gear.

    I got a quote to my door, no shipping and because it’s from a Canadian company no duties/ brokerage fees, the Radflows will cost about the same as a Toytec/bilsiten coilovers.
    I will be PMing you for a discount from Toytec as I am still researching my options. The fact that Toytec will only send via UPS :mad: to Canada is making my choices hard.

    Thanks for your help!
    And thanks for all the replies; I am still considering my options. I had wanted the Ultimate lift from Toytec but may get some thing from Baja North and some from Toytec.
    Another question? I had wanted a 2inch AAL from Toytec but Baja North offered me a 3 leaf Denver set up with the removed of my overload spring making it more "progressive" does this mean less pay load ? As I pull a 5000lb trailer and don't want to bottom out with progressive.

    after market leafs most of the time are not for towing pretty much just for a good ride and great flex you could do a airbag set up for towing on top of the deavers that should fix your problem with towing

    You might consider the OME (DAKAR) full leaf pack.
    They actually have two over load springs...
