I like the front drop with the sittin sic springs. How long did it take for you to get the springs. I've heard sometimes it can take awhile. I want to use his springs in front and his mono leaf in the rear. Probably do the whole kit including the sway bars. The XR bilstiens really make a big difference over stock, huh?

I got the springs after about 2 1/2 weeks and 2 emails haha. i havent really heard anything good about the monoleaf setup though. heard issues with it delaminating and stuff especially in wetter climates. and the xr bilstiens tighten it up a lot, but still rides nice.

great job on the mods bro! hey I was wondering, where did you get your fron XR shocks and why did you use the 2wd stock overload on the 4x4 leafs?

I got my XR shocks(front and back) from dealerdirectparts.com all four were $203. but something got screwed up along the way and i was never charged but still received the parts.

i used the stock overloads because i was looking at the leafs when i pulled everything apart and the stock overloads from my 2wd were arched a bit less than the 4x4 overloads and they are just a touch thinner. i figured what the hell, another member on here (kelson) used his stock 2wd overloads and hasnt had any complaints. so i gave it a shot. more of a trial and error kinda thing i guess. rides real nice so far.

i am contemplating taking the overloads off all together, because i dont haul anything crazy, and i wanna see if it will get me about another 1/2 inch of drop. im new to dropping 2nd gen tacomas so i am experimenting with stuff. safely of course haha

i dont know. i feel like if i took out a leaf it would be awfully squishy in the rear end. i want my truck low but i am trying to preserve as much ride quality as possible. haha i dont think those two things go hand in hand though.

ryry doesn't have an overload anymore. the overload leaf on engages when the suspension is flexed toward the truck, and when you have a lowered truck esp 2nd gens, usually you have less suspension travel and it really wouldn't do too much of a difference. the overload creates the progression of the spring rate in the leafs, but only after a certain amount of travel.

did you put them in the happy or unhappy position?

i took my 5 lug overloads off a long time ago....im just running the stock 4x4 leaf pack. it

if it's unhappy, which im assuming cause i tried both ways and happy leads to a dump truck like ride, i suggest you take them off and replace them with your normal ones cuz there's a nice rivet in the front of them that might cause create a stress point on your other two leafs.

I'm still getting parts for my drop and noticed this the other day when I was looking at the front (bottom of my hand is where the actual tire is, stock suspension)



looks like I may have rubbed the inner fender as well with the tires along with what I am pointing at (you can see a little of the inner fender rub in the upper left corner of picture). What is it's purpose there and will it effect the front drop? (planning on a 3" front). Does the SC Tacoma have this?

they are in the happy position and i havent really noticed to bad of a ride so far. but i will look into it when i get my BEEFED blocks in and rip everything back apart. thanks for the tip. i am considering removing the overload all together, because like you said it only acts as a helper when you overload the suspension or put a load in the bed. hence the name haha

and im not hauling anything so its really not doing anything but adding another 30 pounds to the ass end of my truck. im gonna run without them for a little and see how it feels with the blocks installed. ill let you guys know how it goes.

1) I have 4x4 leafs.
2) When I did remove the overload, it didn't do anything, so I put it back on.
3) When I went from 3" to 4" blocks, I only removed the overload so I wouldn't have to buy new u-bolts.
