Just ordered my Toytec!

I just placed my order this morning for the 884/Custom TT rear combo. It should arrive by next Tuesday. I plan on at least doing the rear, but I may drop the fronts off to get the coils swapped out. Either way, I'm looking forward to getting it up (the FJ that is!). Don (tisilverFJ) gave me some very good info and Kirk at Toytec was great and so have all of the write-ups. It's easy to select the right lift when there are is such a diverse collection of wheelers on the Forum. Thanks!

I did the same thing to mine last weekend. You are right about the air tools to compress the springs. We didnt have them, so we had three guys holding the spring down while one guy turned the ratchet. And I only used two spring compressors from auto zone and they did fine. Of course that was after I completely destroyed the cheap set from harbor freight (I know, I should have known better).

Did you have to remove the lower control arm from the bottom side of the steering knuckle? I had to do this to reinstall the coilover assembly.

Overall, I think it was a pretty smooth install; especially the rear.

What tires are you going to go with?
