Had an epic day exploring the San Juans today. Will post pictures in the Trail Report section in a bit. But on the way back down into SIlverton this happened. These are Toytec Ultimate adjustable’s and have served me well for 10 years but am thinking it is time to replace both of them while I am at it. Now accepting recommendations and suggestions. Can these be rebuilt with new shocks? Springs should still be okay I guess. Or should I consider something different? Icon? King?

They can definitely be rebuilt but given their age maybe it is time to think about updating. The Toytec is a great coil over but it’s hard to beat King, Radflo, Fox, and the BP-51’s. They’re all a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

That’s gotta feel like a kick in the gut seeing one of those things break, good luck on the repair Dan.

It showed under New Posts for me.

Look for something that has a beefy lower mount that doesn't look like a hot dog on a tooth pick.
I would also suggest 2.5 over 2.0.

I had the exact same thing happen to me with my first Toytec Boss 2.0 coilovers and replaced with Boss 2.5 - according to Toytec the kind of wheeling I’d been doing was...well...a bit beyond the 2.0 level :rofl: I absolutely love the 2.5s and have pushed them hard. BTW the shock is actually made by Radflo. You should contact Toytec directly about your lower shaft break, and ask for a price “break” on a 2.5 set :grin

I bent one of mine in half offroading 8 years ago. I went with King just because they are a lot thicker in that area where yours broke. I figure if I ever bend them the whole truck will probly be going in the dumpster. :) Kings are pretty expencive but super strong. I got 8 years and 80,000 miles out of them before I got them rebuilt. Just throwing out some info for you :)

That’s a good idea. I will give them a call tomorrow morning.

Shopped around and talked to Toytec and ended up ordering a set of the 2.5’s. They gave me a small discount. Enough to cover sales tax and shipping. Hopefully they will last as long as my original set which I had for roughly 9 years and never did a thing to.

When you have to pay as much as we do for suspensions a discount of no tax and free shipping on these heavy things can add up to a lot. Congrats on the new purchase :)
