    On a previous thread I mentioned I am going to put a Tuff Country 3" lift with add a leaf in back on my 08 TRD. Several people responded and said go with Toytec instead. Are there specific and legitimate reasons for this suggestion or is this just personal preference?

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    ToyTec makes great stuff and have a better reputation. I have a set of their AAL and it works fine. If I had the money I'd probably get the fromt coilovers.

    I went with TT because of the rep.

    Upon having it installed, I'm happy. The instructions were soo detailed that I inferred that to be this thoughtful on the instructions alone meant that they were thoughtful on the product as well.

    Toytec has great customer service. They give us TW members a discount. Their products are good quality. What more can you ask for?
