Can anyone explain this set up? UCA

I know the photo is not the best, but from what I can tell this is the Total Chaos UCA.

Does anyone know if these are the stock shocks or coil overs? I'm not sure what a stock set up looks like.

I'm looking at buying this truck but the dealer had no idea, obviously.
Thanks!

Looks to me like that is the stock spring and strut with a 3" spacer lift, and yes TC UCA's.

drive a stock taco, then drive that one. see how the ride compares. spacers tend to ride stiff, but it depends on your personal preference. of course, coilovers would be bitchin under there with those TC's

Any suggestions for a decent set of coil overs and leafs? or just add a leaf?

Hit the search button at the top right of the page, if you still have questions - start a thread under suspension

I don't mean to not help - but this thread was meant for the UCA install

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The Brown part of the coil is a rubber sound isolator. THe TRD springs on the double cab and Extra cab modles can slap the coils when compressed. Another reason I hate Progressive rate springs for off roading.

Take a Zerk from the kit down to an auto store, and get some that are close in size. They come in packs of different sizes.
