    I think the coil kit was discontinued quite a while back. This is the kit currently offered http://www.blackdiamondoffroad.com/main/products/toyota/solid.htm I really can't say the quality but for the price I think I'd stay with the Skyjacker kit. IMHO Skyjacker springs are much better riding and flex much better than 90% of the kits on the market. You might ask around the Heep section of Pirate4x4.com and see what those guys think about it. I know some people use Black Diamond stuff over there. Good luck!

    Black Diamond purchased the Warn line...which purchased the Rugged Trail line...which was the most worthless junk non-flexing POS spring ever (3 leaves, thick as yer wrist, with no flex at all)

    They HAVE redone most of their spring pack line tho, and I've heard good stuff about installs on CJ's and such, but no recent history on anything Cruiser related regarding their leaf-type springs.
