This is why the infamous "Taco lean" is not overly prevalent on 2nd gens.

I think this information is incorrect. I've got new Bilsteins in my hand and the shorter shock, part #48540, is listed as the left shock, where as the longer shock, part #48530, is listed as the right shock. I.e., the shorter shock goes on the driver's side and the longer one goes on the passenger side.

Seems counter-intuative. The only thing I can figure is that because the gas tank is on the driver's side, Toyota made the shock a tad shorter so it doesn't bottom-out?

Ah! So they are done making the coilovers? How much are they looking at? So will that make the front not so stiff lol. Interested in those too. Do they have any information on them yet? Damn wish I knew how to weld I'd do the same. Hoping I can figure somthing out.

Not done yet but close. Group buy is happening so price is still up in the air. Ride quality is all dependent on how you adjust them. Get on XRU in the djm vendor thread to keep updated.

While coilovers are usually height adjustable, the main reason for getting them is performance. Even if XII's new coil overs are adjustable to 3", you'll still need a DJM kit to get your truck into alignment.

When I got Bilstein coilovers on my car, they definitely made me a believer in coilovers for performance. On our trucks, however, I really think the leaf springs in back are by far "the weakest link", so I personally am not going to spend hundreds of dollars to improve the front suspension only to have the back end still bouncing all over like a pogo-stick

They are only adjustable up to two inches, but are worth it. Plan to ditch my 1inch spacers once I get these. Will also be gettin rid of my higher ppi stock height and almost new billys while ill at it. Then I'll 4link the rear and sell the 6lug leafs, blocks, and qa1s in the back

Sounds like you have not adjusted your QA1s properly
