Suspension Help need

Hello everyone,


Here is the deal. I am looking at modifying my Tacoma come this summer/earlyfall. I have been looking replacing the suspension. After some research I havefelt most comfortable with OME. Now this is my issue. I do not have any of thetools or space necessary to do such a modification. There is a business near mywork that performs such tasks. They only offer Tuff country and Pro Comp. (Theyhad others but would be a 6 inch lift. Not my style). I am asking the finemembers of Tacoma World for insight on these brands if they are a suitable substitute.

Stick with OME! Where are you located? I'm sure some members in your area would be willing to lend a hand.

I am looking at doing a complete kit. I figured if I am going to do something, I will do it all at once. Not big into piecemailing something.

I am located in the rochester area. I am sure others would like to help. I don't have the time to spend doing it all day as well. I work 70+ hrs a week in the summer time.
