    :confused: I need to know where to find/buy quality but not pricey UCA & Coilovers for 2nd gen 4x4 tacos. I figue theres been a lot of people out there that have already shoped around and know a lot more than I do about there mods. Plus others may want to know as well. Thanks in advanced everyone.

    I love it! You will hear tons of good things about them. I've never heard any bad things about them. They are not super fancy but they sure as hell get the job done. They are very durable and perform well.

    Ya I went ahead and got the TC. I paid about the same price.

    What are you going to do to the rear?

    you may be sittin a little low in the rear depending on which leafs you get. Besides that, it's generally the best option.

    5100s and Light racing UCA's to keep it cheap and have a decent ride. I had an AAL in the rear and it still sat up pretty level

    Billstein 5100's all around, ToyTec coilovers up front, ToyTec 1.5" AAL in the rear with TSB leaf springs, Light Racing Upper Control Arms, XD Revolvers in Black wrapped in 265/70/17 BFG TA/KOs, AFE Pro Dry S Airfilter, Pioneer AVIC-X920BT in-dash NAVI, Devil Horns by Andres, 14 inch shorty antenna
    I went with the ToyTec coilvers with the Bilstein 5100's with the LR UCAs. I'm pretty happy with them but I'm now looking at upgrading to the Icons...
