DeMello\Donahoe Stage 1....?

Anyone running this setup?

Donahoe Stage 1 Tacoma suspension package:
Donahoe Racing spent several months developing valving and spring rates for the perfect Toyota shock. This front suspension system features a 2.5" diameter nitrogen-charged race style coil-over front shock. The spring gives you a 30% increase on a Tacoma. The system also allows for an additional 0"-3" lift to provide increased performance and clearance of larger tires. 3 LEAF REAR ADD LEAF PACK: This 3 leaf add pack is designed to replace your overload leaf spring with a 3 leaf add leaf that Improves the stock ride, Offers 1.5" of lift. BILSTEIN 5100 PERFORMANCE REAR SHOCKS: Shocks Feature Bilstein superior mono-tube high gas pressure design for the utmost in consistent fade-free performance and long life.

Questions:

How does it ride compared to the stock setup?

How long have you had this setup, any problems?

WOW! I guess by all the responses that no one is running this set-up.
I was wondering about this set-up myself and was hoping to read some feed back from real world users.

I am running the total chaos upper control arm with 1" uniball and the Donahue extended coilover for an advertised 9" of travel. I LOVE the ride with this setup.

I haven't had any problems with the total chaos or with any squeaks.

Guys,

I know I am a little late on this one but I just joined. I am planning on getting the same setup but w/ the Deaver 10 pack in the rear. I noticed that your tacoma has VSC/TRAC also. I heard that certain suspension lifts won't work on tacomas with VSC & TRAC. Have you had your new suspension installed & if so have you had any problems? Have you heard similar comments. Please let me know what your thoughts are.

Thanks,

Im going to be running this mid travel setup within the next couple months. I hear its leaps and bounds over the stock settings as far as wheeling goes.
