    hey guys, need your opinion here...

    the SAWs coilover lift kit is on backorder, and the shop is telling me they should have the kit in 2 weeks, but that's no guarantee.

    question... You think I should just wait for the SAW coilovers to come in, or should I pull the trigger on the Toytec Ultimate lift kit which is in stock and ready for shipment?

    thoughts?

    it depends what you want to do with the truck for looks go with the toytec but if you want performance go with 2.5 coilovers but inorder to get the full effect of the co's and increase wheel travel you will have to change out you uca as your travel is limited by the stock ball joint

    You gotta decide bro...People like the SAWs- People like the Toytecs...You obviously wanted the SAWs at first....
    Does waiting a few weeks to get what you wanted not work for some reason (like a major wheeling trip or something??)

    I'm in the exact same boat as you. I wanted 2.0" SAWS. The SAWS are suppose to be available in 2 weeks but with no guarantee. I'm just going to spend about $150 more and get 2.5" Camburgs.

    I could not be happier with the Ultimate kit. I would say you retain at least 95% of the factory handling if not more. I blew the whole wad on my mods with UCA's etc. The new 5100 bilsteins now come with a lifetime warranty as well. I would not do ANYTHING different on my truck.

    Seeing your truck made me call darrick at toytec for the same set up. Couple of questions: Does your tires stick out of the fenders and what is the offset of your wheels?

    That's exactly what I am looking for. I have a 09 Double Cab and want to install a 3" lift. The backspacing is the only thing I have not figured out yet.
