    I did not use the ones sent. These have a different thread than the toyota versions. I used a bench grinder and hones the stock ones down.

    The Low pros that came with the kit were for the rear, so you can still use then, those are the front ones

    How much was the drop? I couldn't tell how many inches you dropped it, and who did you get the drop from?

    Thanks, ya me too. The write-ups just make things much easier, cant miss anything or really get frustrated. It makes it too easy :p

    Im glad someone gave me all the suspension torque specs, it should be made as a sticky or something. Its from customtacos,
