    Toytec AAL, Skyjacker front lift shocks.
    Does anyone have experience with the Skyjacker platinum lift front struts? If so, how much lift did you get and how was the ride with stock springs? They claim they are a 3inch front lift.

    Well i dont have any experience with that brand except that i was looking at many different brand lifts when my local shop 4 State 4 WheelDrive told me that the lift to get is Fabtech or Procomp, he said that people who purchased Skyjacker from him came back in 6months pissed off cause the red springs turn PINK. That all i know and its just hear say from a shop owner, take it or leave it, hope that helps any.

    All spacer lifts are pretty much the same.

    Toytec AAL, Skyjacker front lift shocks.
    From what I have read, this is not a spacer lift. The front strut is longer, something similar to how a bilstein 5100 gives its lift. You use your stock coil spring with this strut, but its not adjustable. Didnt know if the skyjacker shock was worth a damn or not?

    Go with Bilstein over skyjunker. A good rule of thumb for shocks is if you see that brand on trophy trucks and they make an application for your truck, it's got a good chance of being high quality. Ain't no skyjacker shocks on trophy trucks, lots of Bilstein on trophy trucks.
