    Hey not trying to beat a dead horse as I read a few other posts when I did a search, but just looking for real world experience from guys with this kit installed.

    I was originally just going to go with spacers until I read into it further.

    Technically I have it (although pieced together). I have the front coils set at about 2" of lift with TC UCA's. Man... its smooth as butter. Way better than the 5100/884 combo I had.

    the website states it is set between 2.5 to 3 inch. When I got mine they were set to 2.5 inch, so im guessing its random?

    How much inches of thread do you have below the adjuster ring?
    Doug said its a 3" lift so you shoud have 1 3/4" threads below the adjuster ring, if you increase that to the max 2" threads you will have 3 1/2" lift.

    Hi VW, Thanks for the show and tell of your thread!

    Like the looks of your lift. I have been researching and planning to do a similar lift to my similar truck.

    One thing you stated in your thread ..."The c/o's I got with the silver Eibach 600# springs".
    Do I understand that coil spring options are available in the Toytec Ultimate lift kit?

    I believe the "red" spring are also 600# springs also. As far as options from Toytec, I do not know to be honest. When I placed my order they called me the next day and told me they were out of the red springs. If I wanted them I would've had to wait a few days. They gave me the option of the silver ones and I thought it might look better so I took it.

    You might want to call them and ask if there are more options. I do not know if the red springs are Eibach or not, if they are it just might be a color option.

    Any one have any thoughts on what a shop charges for install including UCA's?
