I am replacing my toilet and would like to know which one is recommended higher. Both of these are the complete kits by each manufacturer.
Kohler K-11451-0 kit vs Am Std 2586.00ST.020 kit
For this kind of money, you can get a Toto Drake, if you shop around. Google CST744E if you are interested, and check the green toilet review box above. Terry's prices there are not current; many are now lower. Check his online store to see what he sells them for, so you have current price comparisons. You will need a seat, closet bolts and a wax ring. The kits are no advantage. Cheap mounting hardware, a single standard wax ring and a standard seat. Better to buy your own of each so you can have quality and customization for your actual needs.
