    Ive been thinking about this for awhile and I cant descide!
    Maybe someone can help me out....:D

    Here's my choices....

    ~The Toytec Ultimate kit for $1100...
    ~Or, the RadFlo's 2.5's and everything I need for $1300 ish...

    Im not sure how the Totec coilovers will handle rough washboard roads or some rough packed snow covered roads.....
    Not sure about the radFlo's either. But the RadFlo's are Rebuildable.
    So Is the couple hundred worth it???

    Also havent figured in UCA's, going with TC's.
    Thanks fo any insight/help!

    I could do the RadFlo's in 2.0's If I had to.
    But who knows if there is a difference in performance between the 2 coilovers?

    Did you take into account UCA's?

    Well I think Im ganna be going with the RadFlo's... Just not sure whether I want to get the 2.0, or the 2.5's....
    I dont do much offroading but when I do, I want it to ride like a champ and handle some rough roads/washboard type stuff.
    But like I said I dont offroad much.....

    And If I descide to get the 2.5's, I might as well just get Icon's for about the same price. :)

    I'm also confused on this subject. I was thinking of going with the Toytec Ultimate Lift too. Anybody have any opinions on it? Thanks.

    I don't like the Ultimate lift at all, I would much rather go with another adjustable coilover or even OME.

    Just curious on why you don't care for the Ultimate lift...? I was under the impression that Bilsteins were good shocks. Please do educate me as I don't wanna spend money on something that I'll end up being disappointed with. Thanks.

    Thanks for bringing this up EverTaco23...

    I'm pretty much in the same boat as I'm still trying to sort out the direction I go with mine. I was looking at the Old Man Emu lift with the "Heavy" option to support the bumper with winch and Flipac camper shell along with loads of other "must have" nonsense.

    If you folks who are versed in this subject could enlighten EverTaco23 and myself I know that I would be grateful.

    The main two reasons were that I didn't like their ride quality and they were a pain to adjust. You have to have two spanner wrenches and twist them opposite of each other. One from top, one on the bottom. I ended up having to take the whole coiliver out and compressed the spring in order to turn the collars to adjust them.

    I'm much more satisfied with my Icons and wish I would have just went with them from the start.

    Ok, now I have changed my mind again! :) I know.....
    Im wondering how much of a difference the RadFlo 2.5's are compared to the Icon's? Which one would be stiffer on-road is my main question?
