(i doubt it) Good luck with your truck and keep us posted.

Thank you for the post. I initially wanted a 3 inch lift but am now thinking that 2.5 coilovers is the best option for me.

Not a huge off roader but do plan on going to the desert and camping a lot know that I have a truck that can do so.

Ive just been reading a ton of reviews and they are altering my decision daily. I think Ill be happy if I get the camburgs but I dont want that buyers remorse.

Just so many darn options and everyone that i have talked to likes what they have and dont like anything else.

I agree with Deathproofduck on the Icons. Just did the Icons with Dakars on my 2012 DCLB. 2 1/2" of lift and the ride is excellent.

I have a 2012 TRD Sport and the suspension was stock. The ride no is by far better. Smooth and tight it doesn't soft like stock at all. and for the little off road I have done while fishing it is great. Mostly driving over rocks near the river. I am just chasing a sporatic squeek in the Dakars but I was prepared for that after reading so much here. I do tow a bit and the stock leaf pack and AAL is no match for the Dakars.

Thanks for the review was kind of thinking of getting either a new leaf pack or AAL. Will probably be towing sooo I think I have my answer.

Our replacement UCA also replaces that factory ball joint, when you put a lift on these trucks with a stock upper arm, it leaves the arm at an angle that the ball joint isn't too happy with. We've corrected that by changing the geometry of the arm and using that 1.25" uniball that will allow for more misalignment (droop travel).

The OME kit also comes with what looks like a 2.0" OEM replacement strut, as where our kit comes with a 2.5" coilover shock. these shocks are specifially valved to work for these truck and UCAs. You also have the option of rebuilding and revalving our shocks where as the OME kit needs to be completely replaced (at least the shock does). Bilstein shocks for the rear will give you a nice, plush ride when accompanied with our front end.

dont forget we offer a 10% discount to all TW members!! If you have any questions feel free to PM me or email me at Carlos@camburg.com

Of course you can, it will change the pricing on the kit (add $200) and its something I have to order up since we don't stock those.
