FREE Energy Suspension Poly products

Update-

They install parts they have, or manufacture, then install and triple check for proper fit. After the measuring, it does take a couple days to produce.
In all your truck is there for five days (week).
For your trouble you get energy suspension's poly products everywhere on your truck, installed for no charge.They have to put you into their shop schedule, and what works well for you.
There are 2 ways to get it set up.Call jeff @ 949-361-3935. He is always on the phone, but he does get back.He needs to run up the ladder to get scheduled.2nd method (jeff rec'd) hit them on facebook.
If i were closer, i would do both for free product.
They make a great product. I have had them on other trucks.
Someone please set this up and keep TW up to date with how it works out.
Thanks, madmanmarty

Hey guys new to tw and just got a tacoma 4x4. I recently purchased some used sway a way coilovers that need rebuilt. Anybody know of anyone that rebuilds them locally? I currently have them at orw in temecula for the past two weeks and they haven't done anything with them. I'm willing to take them from orw if there is a local shock rebuilder. Thanks, mike

question for all you 2nd gen tacos with a 3inch lift.... i noticed that when i am turning on round-about ramps to get onto the freeway, my vsc tends to beep and sometimes it causes abs to kick in and lock my front breaks making it extremely scary when driving. ive read that some people brought there trucks in to the dealer to have the vsc re-calibrated but only a few taco members have had success with bringing it in. other members have said its a waste of money. so its 50/50. help please

Yes you need to have the yaw recalibrated. Try places other than the dealer, because the hourly rate is stupid expensive.

Thanks the reply lembowski. Are there any places you would recommend getting it re calibrated at in San Diego?

Well, that's not necessarily true about them hating lifts . But Yea, after thinking about it, they wouldn't cover it because they could very well prove that your lift caused the VSC to trip more than necessary...so yea...

On another note...I bet Jason (Speed Freak) could fix that for you, or at least do something along the lines of that to help you (us maybe )

Well, I haven't had the issue yet...but only had the lift on for a few hours . My only problem was apparently a couple lug nuts on my front tire were loose...had a bad clunking sound on my way home...got home found 3 nuts were on by a couple threads. ouch...that could have ended badly. Could have just been alignment off, not completely tightened and they loosened up quick, who knows. Alignment tomorrow, hopefully VSC stay's the F in its box
