Hello everyone. First thing is first:
06 Tacoma Extra Cab 4x4 v6 6 speed TRD Offroad package
Intended use for lift:
Casual offroad, progressing into regular wheeling (with some practice and finding new places)
I live in New England, so woods, mud, rocks, hills
Now I have read the faq on multiple sites, and I did as much research as I could. It is alot of info and I just want to make sure I understand it before I spend the money.
I have decided on coilovers for the front and AAL for the rear for a 3" lift with 33" wheels. Now as far as coilovers, I was thinking the toytec prebuilt coilovers http://toyteclifts.com/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=53
Why does everyone suggest the Icons/camburg and other brands as better coilovers? I read in one of the posts the toytec ones dont have as long of a travel? Is it worth the extra few hundred dollars to go with the icon?
Now since I am getting coilovers, I should get UCA's as well. Do I have to get the UCAs right away? If I invest the extra money in good COs and wheels and tires, can I wait a couple of months for UCAs?
In the end, I have a budget of $2000. Can someone post part by part some suggestions to get me in the right place? The faqs are out dated and there are new products that I dont know much about. I want to do this right, and I know you guys answer these questions all the time, but the info is so garbled and conflicting.
Lastly, just for clarification that I got it:
I dont want spacers if I am going to wheel
Coils are the springs that go over the shocks
Shocks are the cylinders that are gas filled
Coilovers come preassebled for ease of install and are adjustable
5100s are shocks
OME refers to toytec coils, with 2 different kinds
If any of that information is incorrect, please correct me. Thank you.
