Well after much debate I pulled the trigger on these

These use a Bilstein 5100 2" shock body with 600# Eibach coils. 0 to 3.75 inch adjustable, just not reccomended to go that high. All parts are zinc plated steel or anodized aluminum, also comes with the drop downs for the sway bar mounts and the spanner for adjustment. I figured for $649 I'll give em a try. The shock cartraige and coils are guarenteed for a year and the rest of the assembly is lifetime. I will be installing them on monday so a more in depth report to follow.

Re: Toytech Adjustable Coilovers

Looking forward to seeing your review. I saw they were doing a group buy.
What were you running before? OME's?

i've been on the fence about picking up a set for the front, and ditching the OME heavies too. just can't pull the trigger...

I'm on the fence on this one. Been following the thread over on FJForums... Great price and seems like a great product!

Can't wait for your review (Cause I wanna red one! ;D)

FunJunkie, r u gonna install them yourself?

question: if you do adjust height do you need another alignment?

T

ps. saw your rig at M&G didn't get a chance to see ya and say hello face to face. Last time I saw you was on the 5 in Carlsbad! (last year?)

Can't wait for your review (Cause I wanna red one! ;D)they only got like 15 of the red ones for now, I think they will restock more later

FunJunkie, r u gonna install them yourself?Is there another option? I never knew of another way ;)

question: if you do adjust height do you need another alignment?Yes, I will probably go to get a lifetime alignment so I can get it done every time I fiddle with em but mostly for after the initial sag and re adjust.

Technically, any time you adjust the height of a vehicle, either up or down, you should have it realigned...

Just recieved them today and I am quite impressed so far, they were packaged better than Most items I've ever ordered which was nice, Kinda like all the things I ever got from Dirty Parts ;) all the hardware and no open box end damage with plenty of cushion blocks surrounding.
Only think I am worried about is the sway bar hitting my budbuilts after I install the drop down bracket. Not only does it drop down a half inch but also forward. I asked ToyTec and they said they havn't had any experience with the bud builts but it's the same style drop down that everyone else is using. I'll probably find out tomorrow or thursday for sure, Just depends on when I get off my butt and put em on. I already posted the pics, but here's the real life ones, just like the ad pic but I don't have a glowing white floor. ;D
More to come soon.

Mike, use a small sheet of thin sheet metal and attach it to your lower shock mount and hand form it around the shock tower for protection....Might want to glue a rubber piece on the backside to keep it from hitting the shock....Just a thought. Shock tower armor!!!!

So it came with two spanner(SP?) wrenches? I guess one to stabilize the CO the other to turn?

so from a design / performance standpoint is there a difference in adjusting on the top vs bottom of the CO?

Mike, have you installed these yet?

Curious minds wanna know!

Being my 5th lift install this went by quick and easy, about an hour and a half by myself. I love the ride, SOOO much different than the OME 886. One thing I kinda got a gripe about is the adjustability. Since the collar is at the bottom I thought it should be easy to adjust. I set the truck down after the initial install and it sat a bit lower than I like so i jacked it up again and turned the wheel and there isn't room enough to adjust. I may try to take the tire off again and see if that helps but I'm wondering how many turns lift it how much. Doing that a few times to get it perfect is gonna really take some time. Anyhoo I'm still happy with the product, just looking for suggestions. heres some pics.
