If you're asking me if I have a clear bra on, no I don't. I don't like them.

All the sizes of adapters are the same price. I paid $260 (since I went and picked them up - I also avoided another "charge" by paying in cash...)

$260 is WAY TOO MUCH, especially since they didn't even come with lug bolts!

Exactly......
Extended studs is really expensive too. So the total could be around $400+ for everything. That is too expensive...

Thanks for the compliments everyone - the springs created a drop that turned out better than I expected.

As for the price of my adapters, I don't think it was a high price at all. Of course, we're all free to buy or not buy whatever we want, but I'm going for quality here, not cheap. Considering that I got a truly customized, high quality billet aluminum piece that was machined using measurements from MY car, FOR my car, adapters that fit PERFECTLY (my adapters are hub centric AND wheel centric), and explanation and advice on measuring, selecting and installing the adapters, I was more than happy paying $260. They have a lifetime warranty, and if I don't like the way they look when I install them, they'll machine them down until I get the look I want - try getting that kind of service from H&R... Not too shabby when you take into account that a set of H&R's will run you about $240 before shipping, more if you want to go wider in the rear.

Nothing against H&R - I've heard nothing but great things about their company and their product - but I'm always willing to pay for good service, and I got more service yesterday than I paid for.

Cool...As long as you're happy...Nothing against you.
$240 with all the studs though....
Any way, I did a research on studs and found that all of the toyota studs are standard size, the only difference is the length. If I remember correctly, the studs on landcruiser are a little longer and it cost about <$5 a piece. It might fit your new spacer. If you're interesting in that, you might need to do a research on those.
Nice car...

We did 18mm spacers for the rear, and 12mm for the fronts. It's a little aggressive, I know, but I would rather have too much and be able to machine them down versus going to far and having to buy new ones!

Nice, I was thinking 12mm for the front too. I saw some guy go +32 offset and haven't had any problem yet. Keep us post after you install it.
