UCAs are out of the pirce range. They are nice, but as long as he dosen't jump it too much the ball joints will be fine.trd04taco said:Camburg Engineering (uses Sway-a-Way)
Those are your best Coilovers for the front IMO. Fabtech, Toytec, and All-Pro also have slightly lower priced coilovers. I'd go with replacement leaf packs for the rear. Camburg, Total Chaos, and All-Pro offroad make upgraded upper a-arms and ball joints to make the system tougher. You can also go with a long-travel kit, but that requires you to get fiberglass fenders and longer front axles.
So FABTECH is the way to go? any links?Davf24 said:I have also researched this (so much I have driven my wife to hate when I'm on the computer) I would also stay with the coil over, 3.5" fabtech looks good and from what I have herd (other tacoma owners that have done both cut and drop control arm and coil over) that the coil over and add a leafe is the best way to go.
You're basically paying for replacement springs for the front and AALs for the rear. I think Downey Offroad, or quite possibly someone else, sells an SAS kit for our Taco.jefronhen said:ive looked at the toyotec lift kits, and im curious as to why the 3" coilover "pro deluxe 1000" only costs about 300 bucks.
that seems a little inexpensive. is it because its just an add-a-leaf instead of an entirely new set of back springs?
im hoping to do 3-5" somewhere in the next year or so, and am trying to figure out how much it will cost (unsure of what my budget for this will be), and how difficult it is going to be to do it myself.
is there any kind of an sas option for these trucks?
basically, 300 seems a bit inexpensive for what im wanting to do.
would i be better off with an entirely new leaf pack, or would i be alright with the add-a-leaf?
