    after getting a very decisive response to skip the temporary spacer lift and just get the right one the first time i have a few questions...

    if i get the toytec lift with the ome heavy coils and rear aal... how bad is it to put them on the oem shocks? should i suck it up and buy 5100's for the front so i don't have to compress the coils again later when i need new shocks?

    are there other parts i will need to buy if i get the coils and 5100s separate so i can assemble?

    is it ok to keep the rear oem shocks for a bit or do i need new ones now...5125 right?

    i will need to buy the front diff drop too

    uca's - how long can i wait to get these?? the lift and tires are going to clean me out for a while or are these too important to wait on?





    thanks a lot

    If getting the OME coils, you really should consider the OME shocks. If getting the "Heavy" coils, get the heavy duty shocks. you can wait on the UCA's, but your alignment will be off from factory spac, and it will wander.

    ok... good to know...

    are the ones on the toytec website the heavy duty ones?
    Front OME N91S Shocks (95.5-04 Taco/96-02 4Run)

    Price (Pair): $229.99

    OME-N91S ---
    These shocks offer an improved ride on/off road. Will not work with ToyTec front spacer kits (will work with coil kits that use a top plate spacer and OME coils). Nitrogen gas charged. Best ride/performance for kits with OME front coils. Priced per set.

    is toytec the place to get these or are there better vendors for the shocks??

    The N91S shocks are the standard shocks, where as the N91sc shocks are the comfort shocks. If you are getting the heavy coils, the standard shocks will be best.

    sounds good BUT dont wait to long for ucas cause your tires will show bad wear pretty quick because u cant get proper alignment without them.front tires look like this \....../.i used the light racing ucas (saved $$$$) cause i really dont do any off roading.

    well it is nice to finally know the specific parts that i am saving for...

    i should be able to get the coil/aal kit, diff drop, and shocks fairly soon... assuming i can get a job fairly quick in MD at the end of the month (Del wanna help with the install :D)

    but will probably wait until i can replace my already small looking tires (with no lift) before i install all of it


    thanks for the help all!!
