    Ok i'm looking to get a suspension lift and i have found two very appealing options but don't know weather to go new and pretty nice or the cheaper option which is a better coilover (i think :confused:) with the same rear set up on both yet the better coilover is slightly used (2000 miles)

    so what do you think,

    toytec ultimate lift - 1,049

    or

    Light Racing Coilovers with 1.5" AAL and bilstein 1500's for the rear - 900$
    ( used for 2000 miles)

    with either of these i plan on getting a set of light racing uca's.

    as always thanks in advance :D

    light racing setup will run you about 1500 retail. $900 is a good deal considering the stuff almost looks brand new. Better hurry though I think that listing is on a number of forums.

    Research a bit, but I think that the Light Racing Coilovers are the same as Icons.
    If thats the case, the Light Racing/Icons are better then the coilovers that come in the Ultimate lift. I'd buy used and put the rest towards tires and wheels.

    I say Toytec just because I am familiar with toytec and know they have good quality parts. Light racing may be just as good... but I'm simply not aware of them. Plus I'd rather have a new part than a used part any day of the week. Whatever you go with be sure to post pics!

    No way. Toytec vs Procomp for a Tacoma, I'll take the Toytec lift any day.
