    I think it could end up costing you more than you're saving.

    I personally do not like spacers. My 07 had them. Got rid of then a soon as I could. That being said. Billeted aluminum is strong and won't rust. If you want to go that route........ToyTec

    I also found a set of bilstein 5100’s (front and rear) for pretty cheap...I should probably go that route huh?

    Better choice IMO. I had 5100s, no complaints.

    I would never buy suspension off EBay. I would much rather support a local company with great CS- so if their is an issue it’s handled more efficiently.

    I completely agree!:amen: I guess I just don’t know a lot about all this stuff yet...but I know I’m in the right place for learning! I’ve been reading so much on this forum my head hurts!

    Some Mods :) See build thread for details
    I’m not a fan of spacers either. Stiffens the ride and if just too spacer it can cause the lower portion of the shock to buckle if compressed to hard

    Yeah. These forum members will spend all your cash. Soon you'll be selling jewelry to get your fix. ;)

    Why you should buy only good jewelry... so you can trade it for top-tier mods later. :rolleyes:
